Theme for 2nd day of Summer Challenge is…Picnic.
OK, picnic. It was pretty hard to symbolize it for me, because I don’t have so much habit to go for picnic (camping or hiking, yes, but I think they are a bit different from what called “picnic”) ...but finally it went like this.

I put basket and Japanese rice ball (onigiri) on ring finger because this is still very typical outdoor lunch for me. And all the rest fingers with wide borders; this also came from very typical (or even classical) Japanese picnic goods, the plastic plaid sheet so-called as “leisure sheet” as follows;

Because to build border with shimmery background was pretty difficult, I decided to use self-made tattoo sticker. Problem for me was I bought WRONG one; it was not water-decal sticker, just like ultra thin sticky film which easily get wrinkled and crushed…but still usable just for few moments, and that’s why I used the sticker here. I’m sure I have to buy RIGHT tattoo film and I already ordered it, but it just didn’t come on time *sigh* Anyway I think it didn’t go so horrible…

Now check it out for other’s nail…I’m surely excited for them ;)

2日目テーマはピクニックー!……ってそんなピクニック行きますか。ハイキングとかキャンプとかはあるけど外行くメシ食うちょっと遊ぶ、的なピクニックってそんな行かなくないですか。でもこっちの連中本当にピクニック大好きなのな、前の職場でも今の職場でも「お昼ご飯持ち寄って外にピクニック行きましょ!」ってのは凄く多いです。場所があるからいうのもあるのかなー。
さてピクニックといえばお弁当だろーなのですが全指弁当ってどうなのよ、いうかそこまでの画力とか無いっしょ、いうことで薬指だけポリシートを駆使しておにぎり作って、残りはシマー入り白に自作シールを重ねて昭和的レジャーシートを模してみた件。レジャーシートといえばこの模様なわたくし30代半ばです。こういうレジャーシートって少なくはなったけど未だにあちこちで見ますよね。何でこういう模様が最初だったんだろう。キレイなのでOKですが。
ちなみに自作シールですが思いっ切り使うシートを間違えてた件。タトゥーシールだっつーから買ったのに実際中身見たらタトゥーシールはタトゥーシールだけどウォーターデカールじゃないよ!!何かうっすいシートでした。昔ながらの表面がざらっとする子供用超安いタトゥーみたいな、あんな感じの紙面。一応使えはしましたが耐久性は確実無い上物凄く気泡入る&皺になるのでもう使わないと思います……orz
