I got the courage last night and this morning to go back and give this newest face a nose job and other facial tweaks. I still have a ways to go but at least this time I can say I like her now. One note, however, there's a speck showing right above her nostril....that's not really there! That's a speck from the scanner because I was bad and didn't check and clean the window before scanning. That will teach me!! I find enough bad spots without creating some that aren't even there!
I did change the hair a bit, added some background back in, added flowers to her hair. The bird, flowers and butterfly are cut from napkins and touched up with paint. I didn't show the sides of the canvas....it's a studio canvas with 1 3/8 inch sides so I did a crackle finish and tried to make it look like weathered wood. But then I got white paint on my fingers and managed to get that spotted on the sides. LOL! It'll do. And so I do think I'll go ahead and dare to gift this one. Hopefully the Fairy girl will be happy with it for real and not just looking at a picture. So here's the final piece after surgery:
We have SUN and BLUE skies today! Actually, the sun made an appearance finally, yesterday around noon ! We're going to have almost a week of warmer temps and pretty days before it goes back to snow, cold and gloom. March and April are always roller coaster rides. Our temps are going to hit 40! I can tell you that when we go into town there will be people in shorts walking around with no jackets! That's a virtual heat wave!!
