Winter Beauty book page



Today I took photos of my snowmen and posted them in my Etsy shop ............I find that after I spend some time making cute things .... I HAVE to do something a little creepy .

so I just finished this . I love doing book pages because strange things sort of happen .
I didn't plan this out. This is what I did >>>>>>>>I grabbed a page out of an old book , drew a lady , added flower and berries and THEN realized what the page was about . The word 'crimson' appeared in the red of the flower and I saw ' winter beauty' after I painted her deathly white flesh . But when I saw Strawberry on her forehead .... well , I added a strawberry in the corner .

I love when things ' happen ' without ME getting in the way

oh ... I forgot ...... The word 'sight ' appeared under her eye

weird

Sandy, YOU are the funny one! Having to do something a "little creepy" after doing cute! You make me laugh. That is a GOOD thing!

I am enchanted with the snowmen.

I had a pastor who often remarked that the best work was done when he "didn't get in the way". I think you and he are on to something!

That is so weird Sandy. The page must be telling you something...lol. Love the illustration even if it is a bit creepy looking - creepy is good.
