My Talented Friends

I am always amazed at what designers can do with my sketches. Featured below are two of my friends who never cease to amaze me with their work. I try to do an example layout with most of my sketches, but then when I see layouts like these, I get a little green with envy and wonder why didn't I think of that. LOL!!! I just adore these two ladies and what they create. Please see the April 19th sketch they used to make their layouts in the post below.

I just love how Pearl makes every layout look so eclectic and whimsical even though she is a master at placing every element perfectly with balance. Her blooms are always so remarkable and she uses just the right amount of contrast and texture with her layouts. Please visit Pearl's blog Paperfections for more inspiring work and ideas.

Debbi (aka Delusional1) took a totally different route and made something every bit as stunning. The bold, bright colors and radiant photo make this layout a pure knockout. I hope she is submitting this somewhere, because it is just perfection. Please visit Debbi's gallery at My Creative Scrapbook.

Thank you ladies for sharing your ideas - Liz

O Liz ! I've never met a sketch designer as gracious & heartwarming as you ! seriously !( I've met some & I've met some ) ( - the older I am the less I like people generally ) But then there are special folks like you - I am not too cynical that I can't appreciate that !!! There's a lot that I can learn from you - 'cos those are the priceless things in life - that neither fame nor fortune can give ! lol
