Eleanor started out life as one of those pink elephants that appear to drunks, but got a lucky break and ended up in the circus as a top performer. Ever the diva, she never goes out without an umbrella to protect her delicate skin.


Eleanor is a paper mach elephant from Micheals. I painted her and a little trinket box (also from Mike's), and then gave her bright rhinestone for her forehead and a polka dotted party hat trimmed with hot pink tinsel. The entire piece was rubbed with ink to give it the look of a well loved toy.


I added fun little details like hot pink toenails and a tiny fleur de lis on her blanket.


Definitely a diva.  Smiley

Very funny. I actually had to go out and purchase that umbrella; I'm not one for ordering fruity drinks in bars.  Cheesy

I'm a sun-ophobic, so I totally relate. It's hard being whitey-white pale.  Cheesy
