1 Sketch, 2 Ways

After this post on color, I thought it would be fun to share 2 recently completed layouts, based on the same sketch by Allison Davis. The first layout is about springtime around our house and the second layout features our son and daughter in-law living in their first apartment. The color choices and a few minor variations yield these different results:



Which makes me wonder: why don't I do this more often? Great sketches deserve more than one layout! Do you ever re-use sketches? Honestly, with as many layouts as I've made, I should be scraplifting myself!

  5. Love both layouts. Allison Davis is one of my favorites. I find I can use her sketches over and over without the pages looking the same.

  6. I think using sketches more than once is a great idea. The problem is that there are so many great sketches that I still want to try that I rarely go back and re-use one! Love both your pages, they each have a unique look, your color choices are wonderful.

  8. Love both of your layouts. I have re-used sketches before, but not too often. You are right though, an excellent sketch can be used more than once with much different results.

  13. Fun idea! I love Allison's sketches. I am terrible at creating 2-page layouts and her sketches really help me. I do re-use the ones I love too. :)
