As I was looking at some sketch sites last night, I thought of something. When I am thinking of using a sketch, I have to mull it over and figure out what pictures I need for the layout. I don't necessarily pic the pictures before I find the sketch. I have used sketches to getback my MOJO when I lost it last year. It was rough. I kept looking at the mountains of photos that I had and didn't feel "the urge" to scrap like I usually do. For me, I have to look at the sketch for a couple of days to decide what to do. It takes a little longer to scrapbook when I have to use a sketch. That is my BIG problem with using Sketches....it takes me FOREVER to decide how I want to use them and completing a layout takes a long time.
Seeing as I am the Sketch Hostess on SS this week, the sketch I picked off of the Pink Sketches blog was easy and something that took a week or two to decide on photos and paper to use.
So my questions are below:
- Do you use sketches?
- Do you pick the photos and then pick the sketch? OR Do you pick the sketch and then get the photos?
- Do you use sketches often? If not, when would you use them?
In the meantime....
P.S. I have to get working on today's LOAD and I will post it later today....
