Just Us Girls #338 - Trend Week

Hi everyone!  Have you tried the "smooshing" technique yet?  It's quite popular and very easy to do.  That's the challenge for Trend Week over at Just Us Girls
 
To get this effect, I smooshed three distress inks on my craft mat, spritzed it with water, and laid my watercolor paper in it.  I dried it with my heat tool and was done.  You just have to be certain not to place colors next to each other that will mix into a muddy color.  To finish off my panel, I added a die cut that I stamped and colored with copic markers.  I added star dust stickles to the flower centers and a little bit on the bottom of the jar. 
 
The cool layout is from this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  I just had to use this sketch when I saw it!
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest Angie Cimbalo on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
