My Layouts for Little Shop of Sketches Design Team Call






Here you have 'em at last. Today was the last day for submissions & I got them in a coupla days ago. I was quite happy with how they turned out. I've never followed a sketch before, let alone adapted one, so hope I had the right idea...To be honest I've always though sketches were for the unimaginative & wanted to be responsible for kick-starting my own imagination. Having said that I really enjoyed using a sketch as my starting point so may very well do it again sometime. Just shows you that we should try (most) things once!

Good luck ... if you get in you'll be doing a few more sketches ... hell, you may even get to like it. I personally love them ... a great springboard for inspiration.

Gorgeous l/o's Helen, I too have started to use sketches & am enjoying them although sometimes turn them completely into something else. I hope to see more of your creations.

As someone who uses sketches all the time they are just a starting point. Mine never look like the original sketch by the time I'm finished. Good luck

Love the paper....sigh....gorgeous layouts....good luck, will be holding thumbs.

Must say I enjoy using sketches, especially on those quick scrap days when you don't have hours and hours to push pictures round a page waiting for inspiration to strike.

Well done with these layouts... nice submissions. Good luck for the whole process.

RE sketches.... I'll confess that I virtually ONLY scrap from a sketch... I find it soooooooooo much easier than trying to think how to do the layout when someelse has done most of the planning already... I just find the pics and paper and away I go. I think it's how I manage to do so many layouts at a time.
