Now, onto the good stuff!

Here's what I've created with the Liquid Watercolors for today's hop.....



His & Hers double page layout that is designed to work as individual layouts too!

Wow! Aren't they sensational?!! 
Told you the colors are divine!

Let's take a better look at each individual layout....


Stunning color!!!
I have used the gorgeous Key Lime, Sunshine, Emerald City, Aquamarine & Sapphire colors for this layout. 
Here's a better look at that background.....


So vibrant! 
To recreate this background, use the wet on wet technique. 
Simply apply a generous amount of water where you wish to have color. Using the dropper from the Pinkfresh Studio colors, add one droplet at a time to the water. It will create 'rings' and begin to swirl and react with the water. When using more than one color, be sure to add analogous colors to avoid a muddy brown result. 
Once dry, I also add quite a few paint brush splatters using undiluted 'pure' color. 

I also paint a few white card scraps in the coordinating colors. 
Once dry, I used an old border punch to create the pretty trim...


I can't even! The color intensity speaks for itself!
I also used the hand colored trim beneath my photographs too.....


So gorgeous, huh?!
I've featured the stunning Let Your Heart Decide collection to compliment the photos and that background! Perfect!!!


Love, love, love!



Next is my super star girly page.....


W.O.W!!!
So magic, indeed!

Just like the previous layout, I have used the wet on wet technique to achieve this incredible background.....


I used the colors Bubblegum, Sapphire, Aquamarine & Lavender to achieve this look.
Once dry, I get a lil inky with the Escape The Ordinary Stamp set......


Such a fun background! 
Pinkfresh Studio stamps are always a joy to play with!
In keeping with my previous layout, I also create the border punch trim pieces & position beneath my photo. This creates a sense of unity between the two pages despite being so very different. 


Those punched trims are really pretty! 
What a fun way to bring an old tool back to life! 


All the embellishments for this layout are from our The Mix No.2 collection, and as you can see, they are so versatile and work perfectly with these pop colors! 


Loving all the star elements here!


SO magic, SO awesome!!!
