Life is much more successfully looked at from a single window.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
I made it just in time – my Story Time Sampler is done! I was a bit late getting to this month’s frame, partly because I’ve been busy with work, partly because there’s been almost no daylight, and partly because I just wasn’t feeling this month’s frame. The official last frame was supposed to be A Christmas Carol and I just didn’t like it for some reason.
Well, it’s a good thing I delayed getting started because about halfway through the month the lovely Frosted Pumpkins released a surprise bonus frame featuring The Great Gatsby.
No major changes except for lowering his mouth and changing his smile to more of a smirk.
It’s been so grey and gloomy these days that it’s hard to get decent pictures, but grey skies aside you can still see how dull this frame is to start with.
Here it is all finished except for the greens and Jay’s hair, and it’s still pretty neutral. It makes sense though, it makes the green light stand out all that much more.
Here’s the whole thing all complete (by the way, it’s not actually dirty in the bottom right corner, I just blurred out where I signed).
Now I just have to pick out the perfect frame.
