Sketch Inspiration for Layouts | with Melinda

What's your go-to inspiration source for layout design? Pinterest seems to be a popular destination however from personal experience I start looking with good intentions and then find that an hour or two has passed and I've pinned 300 landscaping designs and clean eating recipes. So, one of the best and quickest ways to get a design down on paper is the humble sketch. You are always assured of perfect balance, an aesthetically pleasing design and the right amount of journaling space for what you want to achieve because you get to select the sketch that best suits your needs.

Becky Fleck is one of the all time sketch-masters and has been designing layout ideas at PageMaps for as long as I've been scrapping. Today she has uploaded a brand new month of creations at PageMaps which are sure to give you the perfect inspiration for your next layout including the sketch I used for my layout.
As you can see, I didn't deviate from the original design of the sketch because as soon as I saw that stitched heart I knew I wanted to recreate it exactly as it was. And I've been dying to use this new variegated thread I bought because it was the perfect match for Doodlebug's Hello collection.
