I got to attend my first ever Quinceanera this last weekend. For those who are unfamiliar as I was here is a definition from Google

What is a Quinceanera Party?
One of the most important celebrations in Mexican culture is the tradition of the quinceañera. This constitutes a ceremony on a girl’s fifteenth birthday to mark her passage to womanhood, to give thanks to God for his blessings, and to present a young woman to the community.
There is a lot of work involved in getting a Quinceanera together. Kind of like planning a wedding actually. There are gowns to be bought, dances to be rehearsed, meals and cakes to be planned and people to invite!
Here is our “Quince Girl” from this weekend.

I especially like the middle finger that I did in two different colors of dark blue but created a smoky negative space and then added celophane for a shattered glass effect.
Happy Birthday Aliya …..xoxo
