Good morning, all, and welcome back to Day Two of Hero Arts & BasicGrey's Sketch week! So glad to have you here. I don't know about where you are, but where I am, I could sure use a distraction from this weather we're having! It's a snow day today and I have three little men underfoot and excited for Christmas!
So here we go! Today Jennifer McGuire and I both worked from sketches from Becky Fleck's amazing sketch site, PageMaps. Thank you so much, Becky, you know how much I love your sketches! I choose to do a layout and Jen picked a card (you're surprised, right? ;)) but we both used Hero's new 2009 release "Hello Circles" Clear Design Stamps and BasicGrey's Offbeat Papers! Be sure to check out Hero's Blog for more of their new release sneak peeks and some awesome giveaways and challenges they have going on this week!
Here's Becky's Layout sketch:
And now my layout based on her sketch:
As you can tell, I followed her sketch very closely on this one. That's my favorite thing about sketches. You can have all the guess work taken out of it and follow it to a "t" like I did or interpret to your heart's desire. Fantastic! I stamped directly onto my page as well as taking the stamps, stamping on papers, cutting them out and layering them with pop dots to get some dimension.
