1 Sketch, 3 Ways

For a bit of extra inspiration this week a couple of the design team members have shown us how you can use the same sketch to create layouts in different ways. We started with another sketch from Chris Millar, you'll have to wait to see her layout from the sketch in an upcoming issue of Creating Keepsakes! Mardi Winen
Tammy Templeton


Tatum Woodroffe






Isn't it incredible the amazing variety of layouts that you can get from a single sketch!
Don't you love Mardi's fabric circle on how old, and the stitched circle on Senior Campus 2007. I especially love Tammy's interpretation in Wedding Day using a heart instead of a circle! When I'd finished 3 layouts I still had more ideas of how to use the sketch...I think provides a great base for using one of the new Heidi Swapp clock overlays.
I, for one, use sketches alot. I maintain an A4 notebook, where I draw my own and stick in ones that I have found online and in magazines. I keep a note of which Layouts I have done from each sketch. When I have a bit of scrappers block I often refer to my notebook, or get online to one of the many great sketch sites for a bit of a jumping of point. We'd love to see which other sketch sites you visit regularly. Post a comment with the sites you like to visit and we'll add a sketch resource link list to Sketches Oz.
So, if you are feeling inspired we'd love to see what you come up with...email them in and we'll share them in a flickr gallery, sketchesoz@aapt.net.au (yes we have a new email address, don't panic though, we'll still be using both for a while) and you will also go into the random draw to win a layout scrapped by Chris.
Entries for Chris' regular sketch...where you can win that great prize pack from Australian manufacturer Rasberry... and this one, if you want to be entered into the random draw, are due in by Midnight WST, Monday 28th May, before we reveal our new guest artist on Tuesday!
And...by the way, you can check out Chris' interpretation of Kim's sketch from last fortnight on the Aussie Scrap Source Blog.

What a brilliant job eveyone has done of the sketch. Thats what I love about sketches, each person h as their own interpretation. I had never thought of using a sketch more than once but that is going to have to change.
I have two sites that I use for sketches they are http://www.scrap-maps.com and
http://www.pencillines.com/
