A New Endeavor: Sketches

This year, I embarked on a challenge to myself. I wanted to try more new things and stretch out of my comfort zone. Drawing my own sketches fell within both of those categories.I had never given much thought to drawing my own sketches or even trying to create a sketch in Photoshop.

A short time ago, I saw a tutorial in Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. Katherine Hansen broke down the steps of creating your own sketches in photoshop from layouts you had already created. It really made sense to me. I can work backwards from my own layouts. I played and experimented. Kat gave me a few tips here or there, and the next thing I knew, I had made a sketch.

My first ever sketch debuted on the Scrapbook News and Review blog today as their sketch of the week.  I welcome you to stop by the SNR blog to check out the fabulous projects the design team came up with based on the sketch. It might be my first, but it won't be the last. making sketches is far easier than I imagined. I have more sketches to reveal in the coming months.
