Well, there’s a big trend blowing up the Internet right now:
Breastfeeding Tree of Life Pictures.
I first started seeing these a few days ago in a few of the breastfeeding groups I’m in, and I thought it was pretty neat.
Now it feels like every other picture in my news feed is one of these unique creations. Since we focus a lot on breastfeeding here, I thought I’d share a brief tutorial on how to make one of these pictures.
I am using a picture where I’m just holding Oliver (just because I don’t feel like sharing my bare chest with everyone) but I feel that the effect is the same.
First of all, you will need to download the app Picsart – it’s available on Android and iOS devices.
Then, you’ll need a photo of your child breastfeeding, as well as a free clip art of a tree with roots. If you go to Google image search, you can select this option when searching for clip art. The PicsArt app also had stickers you can use as well. Make sure both of these are saved to your phone.
Next, upload the breastfeeding photo to your app:
If you are using your own photo, you will add it to the page and select blend, then multiply from the top menu. Then you can drag the image to where you want it on the page.
I ended up choosing midnight for mine but you can play around.
Enjoy! Feel free to come join my breastfeeding support group on FB to share!
Here are some photos from others. If you’d like me to add yours feel free to send me an email.
