Another Layout by Tammy!

Tammy did this layout based off sketch #12! I love the bright colors she used in her layout that help express the joy she receives from her favorite spot.
Thanks again Tammy for the submission!

Here is one of my layouts using this sketch:

Another simple sketch with a lot of "negative" or "white" space!

A Little about my sketches and the layouts.

Hopefully you notice the graphic design of my sketches getting better over time. I am trying out new (and free software), a much needed upgrade from paint. So as I become more familar with manipulating the software, the quality of my sketches should improve. I actually draw all my sketches by hand first, but I am definetly not an accomplished freehand artist so I am trying to convert those drawings into a graphic image. I do plan on posting scanned images of my hand drawn sketches too and would love to get feedback on which format people enjoy most.

All of the layouts posted here are my own creative works unless otherwise noted. I do have several sketch sites that I use as scrapping inspiration myself and will be providing links to their sites in the near future. If I post a layout using someone else's sketch I'll try to provide a link to the orginal artist's website for you.
