This week’s sketch is from BG sketch artist Susan Stringfellow. This design would be perfect for square shaped Instagram photos or those less than stellar 4×6 photos that can be made better with just a bit of cropping.

BasicGrey digital designer Ann Costen used this week sketch as a jumping point for her layout. Ann says, “I loved this sketch so much that I’ve decided to use it for my Disney 2011 album (which I haven’t started yet, except for this layout). I find this sketch to be very versatile and love the fact that I can include anywhere from 3 to 12 pictures depending on whether I keep each 4×4 block as one picture or split the block into 4 2×2 pictures. I stuck to the original sketch fairly closely and just flipped it so that the title shows up on the right hand side of the layout. By changing the spacing of the letters and words in my title so that they are very close together, I was able to create the effect of a word die-cut. I duplicated the words into another layer and staggered the bottom layer to create a shadowing effect.”

Great sketch! I stretched it to make it a 2-pager and added a couple extra photos. It worked great for my sunset layout. I’ve posted it on my blog at:http://scraplifterdesigns.blogspot.com/2012/11/basic-grey-sketch-102912-layout-seeing.html
