I found this recipe and not only was it pretty it looked amazingly delicious!  I started out with my moodboard which gave me some inspiration and also some idea where I wanted to go with the feel of it.  I definitely wanted to keep it in the purple range with hints of lace. My thought process was maybe something you would have in the afternoon in a sweet little English tea room.

I then started my sketching process, I kept things rough just figuring out what elements I wanted to incorporate into my design.

I then took my designs to illustrator and image traced them, cleaning up and tweeking them as I went along. I tried to keep things loose and not too perfect. I also took a page and lettered my title, playing with different styles.  I played with the layout, deciding I liked one of the layouts that Ohn Mar Win had sketched out. Next came the coloring, I have to say this was my favorite part of the designing process.

Then off to photoshop to add some texture and here is my final design!  I loved this class it was so fun and informative.  I have always admired Ohn Mar Win's process and I am so glad she decided to share it with us.  Thanks!!
