Sketch It Out

Do you ever get stumped? Or just in a creative rut? A fun way to spark some creativity is to create a sketch or find one online. There are a ton of fun sketch challenge blogs out there. I had the urge to create just for fun, but I didn't have a particular assignment or goal in mind, so I turned to a sketch.

Nothing overly original or creative. But I was looking for something to help me use up more of those scraps and remnants that are multiplying uncontrollably.

I love how I was able to mix and match papers, colors and shapes. These deconstructed layouts are great for this. I didn't pay any attention to rules or "threes" etc. I just did what felt right.

It feels good to create amongst chaos every now and then. Want to give it a try? No rules, no pressure. I'd love to see what you create! Leave a link in the comments.
