Today we have a fabulous sketch by our guest sketch designer Ana Castro.
We asked her a few questions about herself so we can get to know her a little better. Here are her answers.....
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself (where you live, hobbies, blog addy, scrappy background, etc.)?

My favorite techniques are distressing, stitching and adding dimension to my pages. I like to try new things every time and I love boy’s pages! My style is clean and I used to find find inspiration in my life and outdoor.
3. Describe your sketch making process (i.e., do you make the sketch first or the page first? Where do you get your ideas for sketches?)
I am used to starting my process by the photos, but sometimes I do the sketch first like in this case.
I love to use new papers and products. This really makes me happy!!
