ELEPHANTS STROLLING ON CANVAS!

Hello, its Karen here & I have been playing with alcohol inks :D  I have to say, (although its not really the thing is it? ) that I was very pleased with this elephant!  So much that I begged Di for 3 of them as I had designed them so that they could go trunk to tail!


I covered them with gesso and glued on beads round the ears, tusks & toes.  Then I spread glossy accents over the rest & dropped in some alcohol inks...magic!  I kept the canvas fairly plain to show off the colours.  The elephants come as part of a pack with a cutie hippo and a cheeky lion.  Oh and there are 2 sizes to choose from too!
Thank you for taking a look today.  Please leave a comment to say you have popped by and do call again!  HUGS XXX

Great elpehant parade (if a little on the psychaedelic side - have they been talking to Disney's pink ones, do you think?). Love the bead detail!
