Sketch Time!

I have really gotten into making quick sketches lately. I like the idea of jotting down a quick outline of where things would look good, and then later on using that to jump start my creative process.

Here's a sketch I made for the "Fun in the Sun" crop over at Creative Soup. The crop lasts until Saturday night, so head over there for some really great challenges and a really great group of girls.

And here is my take on the layout.  I flipped around the side strips and the bottom panel; and used a 3x3 photo instead of 4x6, and filled the rest of the photo mat with patterned paper and my title. 

I'll be teaching a free sketch class coming up in September, in conjunction with Creative Soup. Stay tuned for details!
