LOVE Layout {Studio Calico Sunday Sketch} Purple Pumpkin {Misting Your Title}

So I was doing some browsing the other night and came across 
this very unusual sketch over at Studio Calico.  I don't scrap
 anything like those girls really but something about that blog 
always appeals to me and Studio Calico products are top class, 
as is their service.

I ended up making a layout that didn't resemble the placement
of the sketch at all but it's obvious that I used it for inspiration.

I have a whole basket full of those big, old-fashioned chipboard
letters and of course they are just PERFECT to use as alphabet
masks now aren't they?!?!  LOVE it {'scuze the pun...}

I didn't even adhere the letters at all as they were very sturdy.
Just misted straight over them with Mr. Huey's - GREAT mist...

Embellished with Purple Pumpkin and The Chip Chop Shop doilies 
so it's truly an international - American/Australian collaboration!

Added some confetti courtesy of my single hole punch.
{tedious I might add...} and some basic journaling
details with tiny stickers.

****TIP - Rub the back of the confetti over a glue-stick - 
easiest way - use your tweezers.****

Just a quick, fun layout to test out a great idea!  

****Just thinking of new words I can assemble for 
some more MISTED TITLES layouts.****

Supplies List for LOVE layout.

Patterned paper - Studio Calico
Mist - Studio Calico - Mr. Huey's - Overdue
Chipboard alphabet letters - Kay & Company
Denim flowers, cog & button - Purple Pumpkin
