Sketches! Guest Designer Sarah Jane Dowsett

I am so excited to announce this weeks Sketches! Guest Designer is:-


SJ has been crafting since she can remember. As a child, whilst her other friends were out causing mayhem, she would often sit in her room drawing. Her love of art and design followed her into her teens, going to Art College where she studied Art and Photography and then going on to open a tiny craft store with her mum when she was 18.

She has always said, she doesn't know her times tables, but she knows the harmonising colours on a colour wheel by heart! SJ started scrapping in 2004, but first discovered the craft when she briefly lived in New York in 2001. Sarah has been on various DT's over the years and currently scraps for the UK number 1 selling kit, Scrapagogo, and she has also designed a range of rubber stamps. SJ was frequently published in Creative Scrapbooking (no longer in publication) and has been published in Scrapbook Inspirations on many occasions.

She describes her style as slightly cartoony, and bold. Her favourite tools are alphabet stickers and her white and black pens, without which she wouldn't be able to scrap!Never seen without a camera in her hand, she feels her love of photography goes neatly hand in hand with her love of scrapping.

SJ is Married to Ben, and a mother of one, Finlay Curtis, she lives in the seaside town of Bexhill in Sussex.

I asked SJ to choose a Layout Sketch to work with and she chose Sketch #78.

And here is her layout using the Sketch.
