Let's Scrap 2-13-13, Our Lil Artist

Let's Scrap has another great sketch this week. I have been waiting to find the right sketch to scrap some pictures of the Tiny Human and his various painting adventures. The kid loves to paint and color. And this one is perfect.
Here is my take on the sketch. I switched up the number of strips from 8 to 7 to fit the rainbow color scheme. The block of paper under the pictures is actually a piece cut from one of the Tiny Human's projects. I really wanted to incorporate his art into the layout.
I used crazy cut scissors to create the edge on the black boarder around the middle section. The pictures are matted on white card stock with black inked edges. I colored each strip with crayon then added the corresponding colored card stock to each strip. Then added colored buttons, I didn't have all the colors so  I used a few clear buttons.

I felt like there was a lot of whit space along the top of the pages so I added multi colored star stickers. I used a fine tip black marker to outline the stars and colored strips. I used the same marker to add stitches along each piece of the colored card stock. I also used a silver pen and added dots to the black boarders.

The banner for the title was really easy to make. I took a strip of white card stock and cut the ends to look like a banner. I then folded over each end to to make the middle part stick up. I used red ink to ink around the edges and the ends. I used black ink and stamped the title, "Our Lil Artist". The journal square is a piece of white card stock that I put green, blue and purple stickers on.
Thanks for checking out my latest layout. Don't forget to head on over to Let's Scrap to play along with this weeks sketch and have a chance to win a prize from The Twinery.
