Have you noticed how much sketches seem to be everywhere to inspire scrapbookers and even card makers? I have been using sketches with my layouts for well over 4 years now, and most of the sketches I use, have been my own. I of course have also gotten inspiration in my work with other peoples sketches as well, like Becky Higgins, Becky Fleck (page maps), and from places like Got Sketch?, Sketch It, Pencils Lines, and so many more! One can draw so much inspiration from sketches, especially when you are having scrappers or card making block.
This week, I challenged members from the Pebbles design team to use a sketch that I made as their inspiration for the layouts that they made this week. Here is sketch that they were provided to use:
For my own layout, I kept my layout pretty close to what the original sketch was, and kept placement of everything pretty similar. I added a few elements in places that were not in the original sketch, but that is what makes this layout my own from the sketch.
What is great about sketches is that you are able to interpret them as you like and you can either stick with the sketch as it is, you can turn them around, or as the following two team members did – you can even change the size to what you would normally scrap.
Another 8.5 x 11 layout interpretation was done by Mimi Leinbac, where you’ll see she kept many of the same features that were from the original sketch.

See you all on Wednesday for some more inspiration!
