Where are some of your favorite places for sketches? I don't always use them, but I do like to use them for inspiration.... So, I'm looking for new places to check out. I've pinned several sketches from here, and I check out pagemaps pretty often, but I'm sure there are some other great places I should be looking!

Thanks in advance!:)

I recently found a TON of sketches online by searching-
scrapbook sketches or printable sketches and I had sooooo many that I made a book with all my sketches in!!!! (It even overflowed to a second book)
btw- making your own sketch book Is easy print out small pictures of sketches and cut them out and glue them to pages of a small notebook voila!!!

From Google to Pinterest is my method. I love looking through old magazines too, but I always forget to go back to them again.

I just thought - I wonder whether I could scan them and upload to Pinterest without contravening copyright? Does anyone know the legal position on this? Even a secret board would be better than nothing.

I follow SB.com's Sketches Board on Pinterest and get lots of sketches that way...don't have to search for new ones!

I print everything I really like into a binder - have the full set of PageMaps printed out as well as a whole lot of stuff saved on Pinterest. Another collection is from Creative Keepsakes magazine (I used to be a subscriber once, sigh..) . they have the sketches in pdf's online - they are terrific for "two pages with lots and lots of photos" layouts.
(google search "creative keepsakes sketches" and you'll see what I mean..)

My new favorite is Simple Sketches (and I'm not just saying that because I am a design team member). I also like page maps.
