Custom Sketch

My friend and fellow blogger Becky from Sketchy Styles does the most amazing sketches, she recently did a custom sketch of my home’s floor plan you can see a part of that sketch in my new banner above!  She also did a custom sketch of my childhood home, I adore this house and was so happy she was able to truly capture the house in her sketch.

Below is the photo Becky used to make my sketch & her sketch!

Amazing isn’t it?  Being an artist myself (most don’t know this about me! I used to paint in oil and acrylic and sketch in pencil) I couldn’t do a sketch like this if I tried and this style is my absolute favorite type of sketch.  Luckily Becky can knock these sketches out faster then I can drink a cup of coffee!

I am a pretty sentimental person, so to have this sketch of my childhood home is very near and dear to me.  Since I’m not a huge fan of displaying photos in my house (the only real photos you will see in my house is a picture of my parents and maybe a picture or two of my dog) but I love to display art, especially art that is nostalgic, like my subway art & favorite numbers poster and of course my new favorite sketch!

I have always loved floor plans & architectural drawings, I knew I wanted something along that line in my new logo/header, thanks to Becky she was able to sketch my floor plan for me so I could incorporate it into my new design.  I plan on hanging this sketch but need to make a frame for it first, check back to see where I hang this!!

If you are on the lookout for a sketch or a custom sketch of something that has a special place in your heart, visit Beckys blog and/or etsy store!  You will be blown away by her other work!
