Your initial sketch may look something like this. It may have details on what is going to be there on the bulletin board. As your ideas develop, you can then add information and elements to this sketch including the colors you are going to use, the type of material etc.

The sketch is also an example of an informal layout. Pay attention to how balance is created even though the two sides of the board are not symmetrical.
