1000th blog post & Layout Sketch - December

Monday, December 15, 2008

Ok can you believe that today is my 1000th blog post! Crikey! I think it's apt it fell on a sketch day though! lol!

When I'm designing sketch I get inspired by lots of things, but lately I've been having fun going through my own paper layouts and using them for the basis of sketch & templates! Very fun! This months sketch is a single photo inspired by a layout I did last year. The digital template is available for free for a limited time in my stores: Di Hickman Designs, ACOT, Scrapwow. Snag it while you can!

As I said this sketch was based on a layout I did previously, and that is this one done in 2007, and published in Up2Scrap magazine. I've been having fun going through lots of my older work and adjusting it to sketches, revamping them slightly or just plain getting inspired from them and creating a whole new bunch of sketches!
