The Artiste - A Boy's Life

This is my little artist.  He was working on a project for school in which he needed to choose a storybook character that he could write a riddle about and eventually dress up as.  The teacher wanted an illustration of the character.  My boy sat down and meticulously (at least I thought so for his age) drew The Cat and the Hat along with amazing details from the book.  I was so proud of his ability and talent that the scrapbooker in me needed to capture his work. 

The paper used is A Boy's Life by Echo Park.  It is the perfect collection for pretty much anything little boy.  I find that "boy" paper is hard to find.  I cut out flags from the same patterned paper used on the layout and adhered cutout Cricut letters (Plantin Schoolbook) to them for the title.  I left enough space at the top of each flag to fold over and tape it onto the string  .Papers used: Energetic, Hot Rod, and Magnetic.

Happy Drawing and Scrapping!
