Sketch Inspired with Tessa Buys

We love our newest class, From Sketch to Finish Volume 3 so much that we asked our design team to use it to inspire their next project. Tessa Buys chose a grid-design sketch—one of thirty offered in the class— to inspire her fun and colorful layout, which we know you will love! Let’s take a look.
 
I love a great take on a grid, and that’s what drew me to this particular sketch.
 

 
Supplies | From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Class with Stamp, Family Fun Double-Sided Journaling TagsFamily Fun Bits and PiecesFamily Fun Acrylic, Family Fun Puffy Stickers, Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
To make things extra colorful—which is easy to do with the Family Fun collection, I decided to use one of the four squares for my photo and to create patterned paper/embellishment blocks with the other three. I also left a vertical border on the left of my page. Otherwise, I stayed pretty true to the sketch!

 
The exclusive class stamp set made for a great title and awesome accents here and there. Here’s a helpful tip: To create that big arch, trace a large bowl or round platter from your kitchen. Old school, but really effective. If you haven’t purchased this class yet, I highly recommend it to jump-start your creative process!
 

 
Our newest class, From Sketch to Finish Volume 3 is available with or without the 6″ x 8″ exclusive stamp, but only while supplies last. Have you been inspired by our newest class?
