Bubble Effect Layout (Part 1)

Well Let's Start!

Fill it with any color you want since it doesn't matter right now. in this case, i fill it with BLACK using the bucket fill tool, and then I renamed the layer's name into "base" so that i don't get confused later on.

Next, create 4 new layers above the "base" layer

Then, create a circle using the "Eclipse select tool"with the position on top just like i did. It depends on you where you put it though...
Then fill it using the bucket fill tool with a color different from the color you chose for the base.

Do that a couple of times in different layers with different colors of circles and you will end up like this:

If you want you can rename the layers ONLY IF YOU WANT.
It doesn't really matter if you do or not.

Next is to delete the "background layer" (or the layer on the bottom most with the color white on it)
Then press "ctrl + m" to merge all the layers.

create a new layer. Then make more circles above the others....
If you want to attach them to the other colorful circles, then its your choice.

When you're done and happy with your circles... just merge it all and save it with a .PNG format.

Remember this! That the box of the "save background color" option SHOULD BE UNCHECKED.

Bubble Effect Layout (Part 2)

This is what our finished product from the last tutorial went out right?:

Well now i'm going to teach you how to use it and change its color schemes.

First re-open your layout on GIMP and then right click on its layer then choose alpha to selection.

Then, create a new layer above it then fill it (using the bucket fill tool) with any color you want.
after that delete the background layer.
And then you're done.

It should now have a mono-scheme like this one:
