ScrapbookSteals Blog Hop and Giveaway!

I was SUPER excited to be invited to participate in the ScrapbookSteals blog hop this month, but even more so when I found out what the deal was.....today you can get Studio Calico Mister Huey's at ScrapbookSteals.com. You probably all know how much I LOOOOOOVE Mister Huey's. I love the opaque quality and the colors????FABULOUS. Here is what I created using Studio Calico's Mister Huey's Water Cooler:
I made some splatters with the Mister Huey's...
I also sprayed the Mister Huey's Water Cooler directly on some wood veneer. Do you love the aged look it creates?
So, Mister Huey's is perfect for paper (Obviously!) and wood veneer. But how about canvas and trim? I made a mask with a piece of 12x12 paper (cutting out the hexagon shapes with my Cameo) and adhered it to a canvas bag with removable Therm O Web adhesive Zots:
I sprayed all over with Mister Huey's Water Cooler...
After removing the mask I felt like it needed another color so I sprayed some Maya Road rose trim with Mister Huey's Taxi and adhered it to the top:
and VOILA I have a cute and unique re-usable shopping bag!

If you weren't already a big fan of Mister Huey's I hope I've at least shown how versatile it can be!

So here's the deal. If you haven't started at the ScrapbookSteals.com blog, run back there right now. They always have great scrapbooking supplies at great prices. While you're there pick up some Mister Huey's  then come back here. I am the second stop on the hop. Here is the rest of the hop line up...

  38. The sprayed veneer is a gorgeous look. I have a question about the canvas bag - when I've sprayed on fabrics there seems to be a lot of color rub off. Did you have that problem? Do I just need to wash? I'm a little afraid to take my ink off paper again because of it.

    1. Hi Jessica,
      I didn't have any problems with the spray rubbing off, but the canvas bag I used was one I bought at a big box craft store made specifically for altering. Maybe it was prewashed and treated to take paints, sprays etc? I think most mists like Mister Huey's are alcohol based so they should not rub off fabrics easily, but I did give the bag an entire 24 hours to dry before I touched it. Usually I dont have that much patience, but I knew in this case if it wasn't 100% dry it was going to get everywhere lol!
      Hope that helps.
      :) Rebecca
