Getting Sketchy



I am a creative director/graphic designer for a media company, and I’ve been at it for a long time. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living.  I also love paper crafting.  Combining both my loves of paper crafting and my vocation, allows me to scrap digitally, design printable scrapbooking elements (coordinates) for CSI, and much more.

So why am I telling you all of this?

Well, here’s the question of the day:

Do you like to work with sketches? My scrappy-pal Joyce likes to start with a sketch. She was looking for some fresh designs, and I told her I would make some for her. So I did; and I’m going to share them with you, too!  Joyce has a romantic, shabby, mixed-media style. She’s an advanced scrapper and true artist that is always experimenting with the latest techniques. I wanted to make sketches that would work well with her style and this made for a fantastic challenge that I thoroughly enjoyed. I’m hooked on making these now, so be on the lookout for sketches here on my blog. Below are a few of my favorites so far. Enjoy!
