The girls there are so lovely and Nadia the owner and founder is such a sweetheart. I've long admired her and her beautiful creations. http://samnadia.blogspot.com/
Let me tell you a story. Sketches were always a bit of a mystery to me. I didn't quite understand why a scrapper would use them. Then I won Becky Fleck's Pagemaps book last year at a chat night at Webster's. And the design team at Dusty Attic was featured as guests at Pagemaps in 2010. I enjoyed working with Becky's sketch so much. I finally understood.
When I saw Nadia's fabulous site and her amazing sketches, I was hooked. I love the idea that you have a plan, something to use as a guide. But, it still allows you the freedom to choose, flip it sideways, dress it up. Sometimes it looks nothing like the original. Althewhile you had an idea, a direction to follow, a purpose.
The special thing that sets this sketch challenge apart is the journalling. I don't know about you but as my creativity has grown, my journalling is often neglected. Over the last few years most of my journalling has shifted to the back of my layouts. It's going to challenge me to give it it's rightful, valued place on my page.
So if you want a challenge, jumpstart your mojo, share your creations and just have some fun, come and join us.
Come on over and join in the sketch fun.
