Sketches with a Twist

A new DT position and challenge for me working with sketches.
It's something I don't normally do so it might just stretch me a little creatively,
that's gotta be a good thing right?

It has a lot of scope for making it your own while still using all the elements.
 I found it very easy to work with. I rotated it once to the left but kept the original
positioning of the banner under the photos then added a bit more banner
to the upper left corner to provide flow and unity to the page.
The twist was to add doodling.
 The base is some of the 'ouchless cardboard' from the Gauche Alchemy Etsy shop,
they have some fantastic and unique products, you should go check it out.

Thanks so much for dropping by,
be sure to link up your creation here if you use the sketch,
there's a prize up for grabs :-)
