Lift Yo' Self

I think it’s safe to say many of us utilize sketches and sketch challenges to inspire a layout. Maybe some of us use those as a primary resource for page ideas. But what I want to know is how often do you use yourself? Do you ever take the time to go back through previously scrapped pages and stop and say “I really liked how that turned out.”? or “That is one of my favorite layouts.”? Why is it your favorite? What causes you to stop and pause? If you love it so much, do it again. Scrap that sketch again. We shouldn’t feel like we HAVE to re-invent the wheel every time. If there is a concept we love that we have done before, we should try it again. Chances are you’ll be changing it up a bit anyway.
Here is a sketch concept I have used a couple times over…









There are several reasons I have used this sketch more than once. It’s simply because I love it.
So, I challenge you…go lift yourself.
I think you’ll love it too.
