More on Sketches

Good evening! It's actually feeling like spring here and the flowers are starting to come up and the trees are starting to get buds on them. I even have daffodils blooming! Such a wonderful time of year. I think spring is my favorite season. :)

I talk alot about sketches and in this post I want to show you how versatile they are. I used the same sketch by Janelle Richmond for both a card and a layout. Janelle also has a blog that she does only sketches on and she has a layout design team and a card design team so when she posts a sketch she also posts many different samples made with that sketch. You can find it here:

Okay, here is Janelle's sketch:

Here is the card I made based on it:

I made this one almost exactly like the sketch and it was soooo easy. You can use scraps for this one too. I can see myself using this sketch for many different cards.

And here is the layout I made based on the sketch:

For this layout, I turned the sketch on it's side. This is an 8X8 page that I used wallet sized pictures on. That was something new for me too and I love using that size pictures for 8X8's.

This is just one of Janelle's sketches and I think she's going to release new ones weekly. So you can get many layouts and many cards completed with just a little help from Janelle!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
