Each of these pages will show a creative use of the sketch, may include the monthly TIP & TRICK and of course possess incredible artistic talent. Where possible I have added links to each image so if you would like to see more of the artists work simply click on their page to be redirected to their blogs or most current gallery, it would be great if you could leave some love and say we sent you... he he!

Okay lets have a look at Page Drafts Gallery Standout Selections...
'Becoming Who You Are'
by Laurel Seabrook
Page Drafts Template #33.5 by The Nifty Pixel

Using the main photo in colour then duplicating it several times in Black & White is a clever graphic and totally fun way to showcase the same photo. The pops of colour is a great way to bring interest into the design and draw the viewer in for a closer look. Love this page!

Page Drafts Sketch for CSI #134 by The Nifty Pixel

Look at the use of colour in this page! Oh my gosh it is so perfectly balanced. Using a subtle but contrasting coloured photo is a fantastic way to highlight the photo, especially when you use lots of elements and embellishments. Sheer Perfection!
by Aurélie Cormier
Page Drafts Template #32.1 by The Nifty Pixel

The photo is perfectly showcased in this gorgeous page. The Palette and fun elements are a great combo with this sepia toned photo. How good does the grunged up edges of the diagonal paper strips look with the more clean lines of the other elements and the machine stitching finishes it off.
'Cherish Everyday'
by Natalie May
Page Drafts Template #30.3 by The Nifty Pixel

The pink tones in the background paper is balanced perfectly with the same tone in the photo's. Adding the ribbon ties all the layers together. Love this page there is just enough embellishing to add dimension without detracting from the gorgeous subject matter.
'@ Play'
by Robin Anderson
Page Drafts Template for CSI #127 by The Nifty Pixel

This is such a beautiful page. The soft mint hues are a perfect pairing with these sensational photo's as they have some ochre tones in them which makes for a complimentary palette.  The addition of twine is also a subtle yet effective way to connect the sections in the page design. I love that Robin has kept the page fairly clean with just a touch of paint splats to support the 'at play' theme. 

Congratulations LAUREL, CAROL, AURÉLIE, NATALIE & ROBIN... your pages are magnificent. They all show a creative flair and a masterful use of the sketches, so thank you for using Page Drafts designs as kick-starters!

I hope everyone enjoyed viewing these jaw-droppingly beautiful artworks.
