miss gina gave me for xmas, printed it on glossy photo paper, then cut it out and mounted the whole thing on foam tape for extra dimension. i had remembered this particular picture as having a big yellow full moon, against which santa and his sleigh were shown... turns out... i remembered it wrong, there was no moon at all! so then i thought, maybe it wasn't in this particular book, and i checked out ALL of my different versions of the story. nope. could not find ANY full moon in any of them! i still do not know what illustration i am remembering so vividly, but i can tell you definitively that i do not OWN it, lol! so i just cut a big half-circle out of some glimmery white snow-flake patterned paper, and i think it works pretty well.
and now here's the sketch again, you can see i've been quite faithful to it; turns out, the plus side of fabricating a custom moon element was that i could make it fit precisely where it belonged!
