Still, I’m not going to let that stop me from using this medium a third or even a fourth time if another snowy idea arises. After all, paper figures as a background for many different mediums.

Back to my blushing beauty.

Apple #14 wasn’t the only creation that day. While I was busy apple-ing, Jacob made some new friends.

What a handsome bunch!
