like a model

Here is my DT layout for sktechabilities #64:

flower - petaloo
sticker - Prima Marketing, Glitz
trim - Pink Paislee
other - kraft cardstock, hemp twine, eyelet, paper doily, corrugated board

In November we went to a photo studio to take photos for my son's first birthday.
But he looked worried in an unfamiliar place.

On the other hand, his older sister (who was supposed to be a second fiddle that day) had a great time there. She enjoyed posing, changing her clothes, and then posing again, like a model.

The sketch this time is elegant, so I chose soft colors for my layout.
I enjoyed spraying glimmer mist randomly on the mistable trim.

Here is the sketch:

sketchabilities #64のLOです。



Pink Paisleeのトリムにグリマーミストをランダムに振ったのですが、これが結構楽しかったです。スプレー1回ごとに表情が変わり、後戻りできない緊張感もあり…。

cardstock - core'dinations

自分のスタイルはsimple & messy(またの名を手抜き)だと思っている私ですが、今回ちょっとsimple & cleanを目指してみました。

Here is my take on AGP challenge #18.
My son and his new stuffed toy, Harry - it's a hedgehog and we named it after "hari" (Japanese word means needle). He loves it so much and gives it many hugs and kisses.

In this layout I folded the photo mat and put another photo inside it. This idea came from a Japanese book "Happy photo goods", which I bought some years ago.

I think my style is "simple & messy", but this time I tried to make my layout "simple and clean". I used white for background and I thought it would make the layout look clean, but hmm...

celebrate - beautiful smile

Here is my first DT layout for Sketchabilities:

cardstock - Bazzill
patterned paper - BasicGrey, Sassafras Lass, Webster's Pages, Cosmo Cricket
rub-on - My Mind's Eye
transparency - Hambly
other - magic mesh, masking tape

My daughter's 3-year-old celebration - in Japan, parents with children of 7, 5 or 3 years old  celebrate their children's growth in November (the celebration is called 753). Children usually wear kimono (Japanese traditional dress) and go to a shrine with their parents and/or grandparents.

It was her first time to wear kimono. At first she was so excited, but soon got tired. (Being in kimono is a hard work!)
Anyway, the photographer did a great job and succeeded in shooting her smile :)

And here is the sketch:

I love this sketch, it's so beautiful! Don't you think so?

Come join us, I can't wait to see your wonderful creations :)

I created the layout based on this sketch:

I have to remember this moment - a baby grows up way too fast! Were it not for pics like these, I must have forgot how baby-ish my son was. (Although he is still a baby for me.)


さて、Crafty Sketchesの最後のDTワークと、Sketches With A Twistの最初のDTワークです。

Crafty Sketchesのほうは、娘がブラウニーを食べている写真ですが、こういう、口のまわりが汚れる系のものを食べてる瞬間って写真に撮るのが楽しいです。
