10 Sketch Inspired Designs

I’ve always had a soft spot for hand-drawn details. Whether it’s something that looks like a pencil mark, watercolor splash or like a paintbrush ran across the surface, I’m always pulled in my things that remind me of the act of drawing. I remember blogging nine years ago and having to search far and wide to find handmade work being sold online and it makes me so happy that not only is handmade everywhere these days, but the look and feel of handmade is something that almost every store is carrying in some way. To celebrate that style, I rounded up a few of my favorite pieces that feature details that remind me of sketching in some form- from watercolor strokes to rough pencil detailing. xo, grace
