I labored over this one... How might I introduce a bit of whimsical joy into this particular piece? Ahhh... snow! Sparkling.. White... Snow!
My stash of German glass glitter to the rescue. This tiny blown glass jar with a cork stopper, along with an itsy-bitsy coffee-stained tag became the perfect answer: "Snow Seeds!" How whimsical is that? The mittens are sculpted from paperclay, then painted and crackled.
