Confession: I've never been much of a sketcher. Normally, I just pull all of my elements that I want to use and start playing around with them until I think they look right together. However, layout sketches seem to have become all the rage lately (probably due to the success of Page Maps). Sketches are everywhere...blogs, discussion forums, magazines and idea books. And once in a while, one catches my eye and I can't resist trying it out.
I recently joined the Paper Popsicles message boards, and found this sketch in one of their Weekly Challenge threads.
And here's my take on it...a layout that just makes me smile every time I look at it. It was a fun day and I think the layout captures that sense of fun and adventure.
I used Lime Rickey papers from Basic Grey, Thickers from American Crafts and ribbon from Making Memories.
