Sketching with Shimelle ...

I'd like to share two layouts I have done using Shimelle's sketch of the week.  I'm continuing on using photographs of our holiday to Coffs Harbour back in January - I'll definitely have an entire album  (ie photo book) done of this vacation by the year end just using these sketches as inspiration.

This first one is based on this sketch and layout example.

Journaling reads ... The mosaic mural outside the Tourist Information Centre  in Dorrigo is a national treasure.  It depicts the town and the surrounds in a wonderful abstraction.  The amazing depth, texture and colour  represents the wonderful skill of the artists involved as well as the love of the townspeople for their natural environment.  A truly beautiful piece of art.

While the second is using this sketch.

I've used some photographs of inside the main building at Opal Cove (the resort we stayed at in Coffs Harbour).  They had a rather impressive cascading water feature and little walkway bridge which very much set the tone of the overall resort.  Very relaxed and welcoming.

Love both your layouts from the sketches and find it amazing how one sketch produces so many different layouts - having a mooch through them all now - thanks for sharing
