When I saw the sketches, I knew right away I wanted
to use the 2nd page of the 2-pager. I was drawn towards the basic grid
shape, that allowed lots of flexibility in my design. I started with the
basic 9 squares from the sketch and then
went crazy with layering and adding lots of wood veneers! I loved the
left handed part of the sketch too, so I used it as inspiration for all
the layering on the page. In the end, I ended up using the sketch almost
exactly – I didn’t plan on it that way, but
my journaling just fell into place in the same spot as the sketch.
