Every time I use a sketch, I think: why aren't I using more sketches? It's really wonderful to have a jumping off point for my design, even if the sketch is more of an inspiration than a direct map for my layout.
I used the January sketch from My Creative Sketches for this winter page:
I love Winterings, this pretty, new line from Little Yellow Bicycle. It has such a soft color palette that's easy to use. It was perfect for my photo.
This snowman cluster at the bottom was fun to make. I pop-dotted the snowman sticker and added a twine scarf around his neck.
Here's a closeup of the title area.
This is the new sketch by My Creative Sketches. You can see the influence of the original sketch on my layout, but I did take a few artistic liberties.
We'd love to have you join us for the new sketch challenge. As always, there's a wonderful prize up for grabs (see photo below). You can find all the details on the My Creative Sketches blog.
