TIF - February - Memories - Jack Frost

Here's Baby Jack Frost number One.

I caught a bit of the 'sparkle' in this photo. I used knitting yarn with metallic strands for the hair and pearlescent paint for the eyes. I'm having real trouble with faces that are not 'natural' colours. I'm not too pleased with this one. It is something I will have to do a bit more work on. Have to get the sketch book and crayons out!

I decided not to slash the fabric on the back, but I put this back view in just because I think it's cute!

(Arlee, thanks for the tip. This time I improvised a 'light box' with a white tablecloth and a transparent plastic coffee table - much better, but I could do with some sunshine!)

Oh I adore the face! The white theme is just wonderful!

Oh, this turned out so fabulous. And so very cute.

That's the cutest frost bitten face I ever saw. Great work, Kay Susan. I remember, how we ran to the windows on those frosty Vermont winter morning to see if Jack Frost had visited.
