SketchMania is a section of the UmWowStudio blog that features hand drawn sketches every Wednesday. They are by no means to be taken literal, and are kept blank of words for your inspiration. You pick which square does what. Heck! you pick how to use the layout! It could be an 8x8 or 12x12 scrapbook page, a card, a painting, a collage, whatever! The interpretation is up to you, my favorite saying is you interpret the sketch FOR you BY you. It's meant to be a tool, a guideline, your guardian angel if you need one. We just hope you take the time to share with us your creations! We love to see what everyone has floating around in that creative space we call our minds.
After talking it over with the design team I've decided on a few changes for SketchMania. From here on out I will no longer be closing the linky at the end of each week.. but instead will be leaving it open until the end of the month. So there will be roughly 4 weeks for the first sketch.. 3 for the second.. so on. We will then take into consideration ALL entries throughout the month for the prize!
This means you may have up to FOUR chances for each prize. GOOD LUCK!
I would also like to point out that besides myself we have three permanent designers who will (or do) have a button to the right side of the page where you can continually view their personal blogs. We will also have a more.. random designer who will show up whenever she has the chance! Her work is gorgeous and you will all love it, but due to circumstances she may not be able to contribute as often as the others.
Permanent Design Team:
I will also eventually be inviting a guest designer to help us with examples each month, this is set further for the future and we haven't decided on how to go about it yet. Thanks so much everyone for participating! Be sure to share us with your friends!
