Sketch #81 From Sketchabilities.....

Good morning!  Here with the my first post for the new design team at Sketchabilities

For Sketch #81, which you can see here, Karan gave us a fantastic design to play with. 

When I saw the sketch for the first time last month I was really excited because, to me, it screamed Christmas.  The three triangles layered beneath  the photos obiviously read Christmas tree to me.  That was my first thought, so I found it ironic that when I sat down to do the layout I went all autumn and replaced the "tree" or triangles with chevrons!  LOL.  That is the fun thing about sketches--they are jumping off points and you can take them very literally and scrap the sketch as is or you can color outside the lines and use it as more of an inspiration piece.

So here's my take using pics of Maleia from autumn past.......

Please make sure to stop by Sketchabilities to see the rest of the team's take on Sketch #81 and make sure and link your project because you could be chosen by Karan to be one of the five featured designers for Sketch #81.

Wishing you all a great weekend!
