Focus On Sketches - 3 ways or more

I've started a new series on my Youtube channel and if you're not already following me there I'd love to have you subscribe and create along with me. I love sketches! they're a great starting point if you need a little nudge and sometimes they're great to just follow exactly when you want to create quickly or lost your mojo. I'm going to be sharing how I change this sketch up to create two more examples. I've already shared my layout following the sketch almost exactly so back up and check it out if you haven't already seen it.

Here's the first sketch I'm working with from Kristine Davidson and Creative Scrappers.

I started by one of the easiest ways to change a sketch and that is starting with the photos. I substituted the two small photos for one 6x4 portrait photo.

I didn't stop there. Instead of two pieces behind the photo I used one sheet of the floral then created the separation shown on the sketch with border strips. Instead of the tags I used my stamps to create a large embellishment to take it's place.

Here's a look at the whole process and more of my thoughts working with this sketch.
