I did a personal swap with fancybutch and since she liked robots and elephants, I went with those themes. I don't think I have a pic of the robot, though. Anyhow, this is the elephant one that I made for her. I used all sort of old book pages and vintage sewing patterns for the background and then drew the elephant out on a separate paper and embellished with paint, watercolour pencils, paint pens, etc. I hope you like!

Jaw-droppingly awesome!

I love the way the elephant seems almost like a tiny metal sculpture.

Absolutely fabumondous!

I love it so much! The elephant is great. I like the idea to use a half of it! And I love the colors.
