What do you get when you mix a fun sketch with a recipe challenge?

For me, it resulted in this... 

This is both my DT take on LGS August Week 3 sketch and me taking a crack at Sassy Scrappers Recipe Challenge for August.

    August  Recipe Challenge

Watercolouring with mists... check. I had filled two mini misters with leftover diluted Magenta Hot Pink and Orange Nuance from a previous project and it was just the right colour for the MME My Girl collection embellis that I wanted to use. I sprayed them on a clear gessoed background. After stamping with the white ink, I decided it need a bit more watercolour feel so I repeatedly stamped with the watercolour after spritzing it on my craft mat and then loading my stamp from there. Not perfect impressions but that is totally okay for the look that I wanted.

I used the orange Nuance spray on the Maya Road canvas tags after I stencilled them with a mix of whipped spackle and clear gloss medium. Nothing like some creative chemistry in improvising when you want a certain effect but do not have the product. ;) After they were dry, I dabbed a bit of Dreamsicle Glimmer Mist as it was a different and darker orange to give some further details to the tags.

After I sewed three rounds of circles and arranged my other elements, including the title using Thickers (another check in the recipe), it was time for the last recipe item or rather items... enamel dots. I used both the MME My Girl collection ones and some Simple Stories DIY pink ones.

See the other creative interpretations that my fellow design team members came up with based on the sketch here and fellow recipe challenge participants here.
