Sketch Inspiration Number 1

In addition to the classes, product features and tutorials here on the Created By ATDML Blog we will be posting sketches to try and kick start your Mojo. These will come from various members of the DT and will include a sketch and the designers layout to go with it.

This sketch and layout is one of mine. I love the crazy brightness of the Scenic Route Garden Grove papers. In fact I love Scenic Route so I was very sad to see them go. Luckily we still have some of their products in stock!

I am also a big fan of circular designs on layouts, I used the handcut flowers from one of the papers around the bottom of the circle to add a bit of extra detail. Because my photo was so large I placed the title on top of the photo, another favourite design feature of mine.



Have a go at your own layout based on the sketch. If you want to play along then post your layout to your blog or in an online gallery and post the link here. I will sort out a little prize for my favourite :)

Finally, if you have not yet looked, scroll down to the product spotlight from January 4th - I have added a mini book from Jane Hewitt and a layout from Debbie Jewell since the original post.
