A Fun Layout using NEW Aqua Huez with Missy

Hey, Shimmerz fans!  Missy here today, and I have a fun & bright layout to share.  I used a lot of the NEW Aqua Huez to create this.  They are gorgeous watercolor paints without the shimmer.  I decided to create lots of painted circles, so I began with some white cardstock, my Aqua Huez, my water brush and a lined stencil.  I painted through the stencil to create a page full of different colored stripes.  Then I took a few different sized circle punches and punched out several circles.  Once I had them placed where I wanted them, the rest of the layout fell into place pretty easily.

These colors are so pretty!  You can control the intensity of them depending on how much water you add to the containers and how long you let it sit.  I wanted a lighter look, so I just used a drop of water from the water brush to get a little bit of paint on the tip.  I used papers and embellishments from the new Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan collections.  The flowers are rub-ons.

These bright colors remind me of Spring so much!  I fussy cut this yellow piece from patterned paper and added another rub-on and a flair button.  I also machine stitched through all the circles.  This punch technique is a great way to do mixed media if you want to try it but still want a "clean" look on your layout.  Putting it together is messy, but the punched shapes make it "neat" again.

I used some Thickers for my title...Bikini Mowing...haha!  My daughter looked so adorable pushing her little pink mower around the patio in her little swim suit :D

Here's one last close up of the right side of the layout.  Another flair button and some tangled thread.  I also used my water brush to paint some blue color around the layers.

Here's my process can see how this layout was put together from start to finish! I hope you enjoy this technique as much as I's really fun (and easy)!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!
