Snow White is the original Disney Princess, I've always loved watching the video and found delight in the magical world that Walt Disney created. The woodland creatures and the famous poison apple are the inspiration for this artwork

13.                Add Bits of Mossy Texture Using Felting Materials.

Some Final Thoughts.

One of the main lessons of Snow White teaches is the danger of vanity. The Evil Queen Wants Snow White dead because she cannot image there is someone more beautiful than her. It is this vanity in the end that destroys her. The concept of real beauty is often found in lowly places and humble creatures.

"Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Who is the Fairest One of All?"

"Oh, Queen, Thou Art Fairest of All I can See, But Over the Hills, Where the Seven Dwarfs Dwell, Snow White is Still Alive and Well, and None is so Fair as She"

"Are You Afraid of Poison? said the Old Woman, Look, I Will Cut the Apple in Two Pieces, You Eat the Red Cheek, and I Will Eat the White."

Snow White Quotes:

"Come on, Perk Up, Won't You Smile For me?"

"I'm Sure I'll Get Along Somehow. Everything's Going to Be Alright."

"There's No Use Grumbling, When the Raindrops Come Tumbling."

"What do you do when Things go Wrong? Oh! You Sing a Song."

"Just Whistle While You Work, And Cheerfully Together We can Tidy Up the Place. So Hum a Merry Tune, It Won't Take Long when There is a Song To Help You Set The Pace.'

The Evil Queen Quotes

"Thirst? Have a Drink."

"Don't Let the Wish Grow Cold."

Dwarf Quotes

"Heigh-ho! Heigh-ho!

It's Off to Work We Go"

"Heigh-ho! Heigh-ho!

It's Home from Work We Go!"
