Gone Fishin' Layout and new Magicals Technique

Hello!  Today you will find me sharing a cute layout of my husband with our youngest on her first time fishing here and on the Nani Ke Ola Blog... I'm also going to share a new technique I used with my Magicals to create my own patterned paper.  First let's see the layout...

To recreate this look you will need watercolor cardstock, Magicals by Lindy's Stamp Gang, a Stencil, Paint Brush, Mini Mister, and a Baby Wipe.  I adhered my stencil to the watercolor cardstock with washi tape to keep it from moving.  Next I spritz the whole paper with water in my mini mister ( any spray bottle will work ).  I then dipped my paintbrush into my magical powder, one at a time, and tapped it onto the openings in the stencil.  I did this randomly with various colors until each butterfly in my stencil had some of the Magicals pigment on it.  I spritzed the stencil one more time and then gently went over each butterfly with a wet baby wipe.  Slowly remove the stencil and ta - da!  I love when I can create my own designs like this, and if I were going for a more specific color pallet I could work with just one or two colors.

I was also inspired by the Paper Issues: Mister Fix It Challenge
