Although I was productive with card making on Saturday, the day didn't start out with much creativity. My goal was to make several cards to keep in my stash that was depleted, but the ideas just weren't coming, despite the fact that I pulled out several different 6"x 6" pads and other printed paper that I wanted to use.
After some time of fussing, I looked at Pagemaps.com. Becky's sketches always seem to create a spark, and I hoped it would this time too. This is a sketch from the September 2013 Cardmaps:
Because I had so much pattern paper I wanted to use, this sketch offered ideas for layering different paper.
The first card with this sketch turned out well.
After this card, I was stuck again. Instead of looking for another sketch and starting over, I decided to reuse the sketch since I was pleased how the first card evolved.
Now I was on a roll, so I completed a couple more:
And finally, one more with a twist:
Even though I used the same sketch, with a variety of paper and stamps, I was still able to complete five different cards.
Do you use the same sketch more than once? Leave your comments below!
