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!
Thanks for stopping by!
