Feeding Self Layout

I am sharing a layout I made a little while back when I just decided to play. It is definitely a lot messier than my normal style. This layout was all about experimentation and just playing.

I actually started with the background first and then found some pictures that I thought would work .I wanted to use up some 2x6 strips of paper I had left over from cutting 6x6 papers down to 4x6 for project life, so I started by just laying them down and layering one over the other.

Then, I decided to get a little messy and add some paint, stamping and ink droplets (from Mists). 

As I was letting it dry, I thought of some pictures I had of Eli feeding himself for the first time and thought they would work well for the page. I added the pictures, some die cuts from my silhouette cameo I had laying around my desk, the title and some tags for journaling. Here is how it turned out:

It was fun to play and get a little messy and in the end, I really like the layout - especially the fact that I got this memory documented!

I hope you have a great Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the way the layout is intentionally messy underpinning, how we all know how messy feeding yourself gets when you start outs very clever

  2. great layout, love that you created your own background!

  3. I love how you did the background, very cool layout!
