Try It Tuesday~Sketches!!!

Hi everyone~It is that time again for Try It Tuesday!!!  I thought we would talk about sketches~so many sites have sketches on their blog, you should never be out of sketch places to go.  I thought I would post some places that I know:
First up is Helmar's sketch of the month.  It is by Lydell Quin

and my take on it~

I used paper by Susan B. Weckesser of Susie Bee Studio. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry, Helmar's Zapdots and Helmar's Acid Free Glue.  The die cut paper is made by using my circle punch and punching out 2 inch circles and gluing them around the paper.
Here are a few more sites that have either a sketch or a contest~
D's Paper Studio ~ contest !!
Got Sketch? ~ sketch site {awesome}
4 X 6 Photo Sketch Blog ~ very cool!!
Page Maps  ~ another one I like to use!!!!
Lets Get Sketchy! ~  another way cool place!!
The Paper Bakery ~  sketch contest !!
Shimelle ~ video's and sketches!!

See ya soon!!!!
