A week or so ago, I won a spot in Sketchbook 3 on Amy Tangerine’s blog. I’ve only recently started to use sketches, so I was really excited to win a spot to try the class and more sketches out. Today I played hooky from work for my birthday and played around with the day 1 sketch. This is what happened:
What I love about sketches are that they give me a good idea on what elements to put on a page. I tend to end up with pages that look less like the format of the sketch and more like the elements of the sketch in different locations. I also turned this into a two page layout, where the sketch was just a one page layout, because I wanted to use a lot of photos. I don’t think I’ve ever done a cohesive 2 page layout or used this many photos/items on a page before, so this was a totally new experience.
I’m really excited to see the sketches for the rest of the class. They send 3 a week, so I doubt I actually will get to them the same day like I did today, but I will try I’m sure 🙂 This class also shows card sketches, so I’m really excited to try those at some point too.
