beautiful

 

Today I made a new layout based on this new sketch from Let's Get Sketchy! .
In Japan, we have a custom to celebrate their growth by going to shrines usually in November.
It's called SHICHIGOSAN, which literally means the numbers 753. Girls at the age of 3 and 7 and boys at the age of 3 and 5 wear traditional kimonos for that occasion. This is my daughter when she was 7 years old and it was her first experience to have her hair done plus a little make-up! As I've mentioned before, my daughter is usually very boyish, so I was worried whether she would sit quietly while dressing up, but actually she enjoyed it very much :) I wanted her to wear the traditional Japanese patterned kimono, but she chose this one; less traditional with all the roses....However, I think it was the right decision!

Let's Get Sketchy! の新しいスケッチでまたまた作りました!
今回は娘の七五三の写真を使いました。初めてのお化粧、ヘアメイクでしたが、じゃじゃ馬娘も楽しかったみたいです♡ 本当は伝統的な柄の着物を着てほしかったのですが、選んだのはモダンなバラ。でもよく似合ってる(笑) 結果オーライです(*^^*)

Here's the sketch:

From the sketch, I thought of splattering a lot of paint, but I just sprinkled light colored mists here and there...and Mica fragments so it will glitter. I put gesso and several layers of gold ink on the circle frame, and then took some ink off to make it look antique.

最初は着色メインで、と思ったのですが、薄めの色で最小限にとどめました。その代わり、キラキラのミカ フラグメントを貼って華やかさを出しました。フレームは、ジェッソを下地に塗ってから金色のインクを塗り重ね、アンティークっぽく見えるようにすこし剥がしました。


 
I popped up the picures and put some pearled stickers underneath. Also, I used a piece of transparent die cut on the main photo; I think it turned out very elegant.
 
写真はポップアップさせて、下からパールシールをのぞかせました。メインの写真にはトランスパレンシーを貼って、とても華やかに!
