First Smile

This layout was created for this month’s challenge at Words and Paintery. Normally, monochromatic layouts aren’t my thing – especially greens – but this photo seems to pop out of the page with all the greens.

This is a photo of DS as he was learning to smile. As a mom, this is one of the coolest moments. It makes all the late nights and early mornings and spit-ups worth it all!!

The background was created using acrylic paints and a brayer. Lots of paint splatters and stamping on top of that and then some string and paper strips. For my DS’ pages, I am addicted to wood pieces so there are quite a few hearts and arrows.

Thank you so much for looking!
