La medaglia più bella - The best medal

Tra pochi giorni è il compleanno della figlia di un'amica e, oltre a un regalino alla bambina, abbiamo pensato di fare un regalo anche alla mamma, un layout con tre foto di sua figlia. La piccola compie dieci anni ed è una provetta nuotatrice. Nella foto centrale potete vedere che ha una medaglia in mano. Ma qual è il premio più bello per una mamma? Semplicemente osservare i suoi figli che crescono. E allora ho pensato per questo LO a un titolo semplice, ma evocativo. Nell'antica Roma a una matrona che le mostrava i suoi ori, Cornelia, madre dei Gracchi, vedendo entrare i suoi figli rispose: "Questi sono i miei gioielli!".

We prepared a little present for a friend's daughter, who is going to be ten, but we decided to give a gift to her mother too. The little girl is fond of swimming and in one of the photos you can see a medal in her hands. What's the best prize for a mother? Just seeing her children growing up. So I made this simple but evocative layout. In Ancient Rome a noble woman showed Cornelia her jewels. When Cornelia saw her own children entering she replied: "These are my jewels!".


'La mia MEDAGLIA più BELLA sei TU' means 'YOU are my most BEAUTIFUL MEDAL'.




Ho schizzato dell'inchiostro e usato dei piccoli timbri a cerchietto per dare l'idea degli schizzi d'acqua nella piscina.

I splashed some ink and used a little circles stamp the make water-splash effect.


Ho fatto questa medaglia con della pittura effetto oro e poi ho tagliato le tre striscioline di carta verde, bianca e rossa.

I made this medal with gold-like painting and then cut three stripes to make the Italian flag.
