Here are some different ideas for sources of inspiration when creating sketches as well as some actual sketches for you to use for this weeks challenge. Feel free to use the appropriate graphic within your blog post if you like.
You can use advertising from newspapers, magazines, event posters and more as inspiration for unique sketches.
Retail displays that catch your eye while shopping can also be used for inspiration.
Packaging for some of the products you use everyday could inspire you.
Many of the amazing graphic design pieces found around the web can be very inspirational.
You can use small portions of interesting scrap layouts to adapt to a unique card sketch.
Everyday objects, like this pot holder, can inspire you to create a fun sketch ideas.
I created a free download that contains all of these sketches in one place for you to print out and use in your stamping space!
I hope these sketches inspire you today and perhaps some of the tips I have shared will help you in the future when creating your own unique sketches.
