Sunday Sketch Series No. 56

Hi guys! I'm back with another Sunday Sketch Series and today I want to introduce you to a way to scrap the sketch all together and cut out some of the work. It will be less creative, but when you're in a time crunch - using templates are a great way to get a usable 'sketch' and put it right to work in Photoshop. This week, I'm using a template from Little Lamm & Co's February templates and putting the basis of the design to work for me. Using templates is a great way to get a structure down for a page and then if you want, you can add in any extra embellishments that you want. Also, because it's in photoshop - you can manipulate the template as much as you want also!
