Oh the Places You'll Go

I really enjoy creating the sketches each month for Gossamer Blue but I love it even more when I get to play along. Each month, I create the sketch and it gets sent to 1 subscriber and 1 design team member. Stephanie asked me to play along this month. Let's take a look at the sketch and my layout. And you tell me which one I created first - the sketch or the layout.

The layout...
Heather Leopard for Gossamer Blue
I love using a sketch because you can use them as a jumping off point for creativity, which is what I normally do, with the end result looking similar yet something I can call my own OR, using it as an exact lift, which is what I did today.  Actually, I created the layout first and then designed the sketch. Was that the option you chose?

My hubby snapped this photo of my daughter riding along with him a beautiful Spring day. He just snapped the photo (without aiming since he was driving) hoping he’d get a good shot and I just love it! So when I saw the travel related goodies in the July kit, especially the map paper, I knew it’d be perfect. The whole layout was designed around that geo tag and star in the middle. I built the rest of the layout around that one little detail and this is the end result.
So, will you play along with us this month? Show us your take on this sketch by sharing it in the Gossamer Blue Sketch Challenge Gallery. We will announce a winner with the next Sketch Challenge on August 29 ! The prize will be a $10 Gift Card to Gossamer Blue
