I am a sketch junkie - I love the way a sketch can bring me ideas and get my mojo flowing. If'm stuck and don't know how to start a layout, I look for sketches and will always find something.to start me.
When I satrted scrapping five years ago, I sometimes found it difficult to use sketches, as I had the feeling I needed to follow the skethch to the very end: If there was a flower on the sketch, I used flower. I would place the photos as they were placed, and the title would be in the same spot as on the sketch. But over the years I have learned to care less and trasmit sketches to fit my style.
While I was waiting for MyScrapbooknook August kit to arrive, I drew this sketch:
When the kit arrived there were no small items to fit the flowers on the sketch, but I found a few other objects that would fit the sketch perfectly. I have a class on how to do it, and about my thinking process, over at the Nook Forum, you are welcome to have a look.
If you like my sketch, feel free to use it. If you use it, please give me a link to your blog or gallery so I can leave you some love. Or even better: upload to the Nook Gallery for even more praise and love :-)
Thank you for stopping by, and have a great week!
