For those of you who use sketches to create layouts, do you stick to the sketch or use it more as a jumping off point?

I will often start with a sketch if I am stuck for inspiration but once I've got a few bits down it can sometimes be so far removed from the original idea you would never know where it came from.

I stick fairly close to sketches most of the time. It just makes things faster and easier for me. Some times I make a right turn to veer off but not usually. My photo placement is usually the same or similar but accents and sometimes accent placement is different.

The first time I use a sketch I stick to it almost exactly to get my mojo going without having to think too much. Then I change it up a lot using the same sketch with different papers to make multiple layouts.

More as a starting point, because I don't even usually print the photos exactly the same size.

Sometimes I follow a sketch so close you would think my page was the sketch. Other times even I can't figure out what about the sketch inspired me! I just finished a page from a sketch and I know I started with that sketch but can't see it so much now!

Mostly a jumping off point. My layouts never come out at all like the sketch.

I should add that, trying to scraplift or follow a sketch completely is actually more stressful for me then coming up with my own design - go figure?

I understand what you mean. I think I perfer to use them as a starting point and then go with it. It can be hard when you can't get the papers you've chosen to work with the sketch or lo.
