Coming up with new ideas for clients is one of the very best parts of my job. That said, it can be hard to communicate something visual, that doesn’t exist yet. How lush is the floral arch? When I say asymmetric, are you thinking the same thing? How will the lining from your invite translate onto your cake? The last thing we want, is to replicate something that has already been done, just because we can’t find a photo of it.
I have wanted to take a sketching class to better communicate with our clients, for ages and this year, I decided to take the leap and do it! The Sketchbook Series lead by Very Mary Inspired was hosted at Paisley and Jade in Richmond.
The two day class was life changing. I am only half joking. I have become obsessed! Not only am I making time everyday to practice for our clients but I have started drawing all kinds of random things that I see. My husband is only slightly amused by the now constant bag of sketching pad, pencils and ruler I carry.
As a small business owner, I am always trying to find ways to improve and stay current. I can’t wait to see how the sketches I am creating will translate to real life moments for our awesome clients!
Here is a sneak peek of some fun things we are working on.
