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!
