My Favorite Things!

My favorite things is the theme for this weeks Kenny K Digital Image Challenge. Well that one was pretty easy. My favorite things are my children and husband. This image reminds me so much of my older daughter Sarah. She is all quiet and stuff, unless you get her out of her shell. Plus, she loves to play the guitar. She has this hair that she REFUSES to keep out of her eyes. If it had a crazy skull cap on it, it would have been absolutely identical. LOL.
So I had to color this up with the Copics. I dressed her in black, because that is so Sarah. The guitar colors were some of her favorites (or at least they used to be).  The background is embossed with a music themed folder and then airbrushed as is the edge of the nestie I cut her out in. The flowers have also been airbrushed. The edge was airbrushed with the black 110 after the B24, R27. I tried to go light, but I wanted a little grungy look so I let the spray eek over the image. I kind of like how that ended up. It just gave it some dimension I think. There is also some spica over the guitar, her hair and eye. The background Design Paper is symmetrical and even, which also reminds me of Sarah. So goth-lite over the top of organized and OCD (she gets that last part from her father - hahahahahaha). That is what I see, and why I love this image so much! I love you Sarah!!!!
