My little baby circus elephant

I wanted to share with you my latest version of a baby circus elephant I just finished recently.:)  She is larger than the other elephants I've made.  It's much cuter in person than these pictures can capture.  Or maybe it's my camera?  I swear since moving to Arizona my picture taking quality has gone down hill.  I blame it on the lighting!   LOL!:)  Even though it's much sunnier here in Arizona the way my rooms are situated I can't take advantage of it.  All the rooms are dark and shadowy, which is great during the summer to help block the intense sunlight but not so good for picture taking.  I have a makeshift light box but I noticed the pictures have a cool blue tint to them that I then have to correct in my photo editing software.  Anyway, I digress!  Here are some of the pictures of the elephant!;)

I love how the balloon turned out.  In the past I tried a needle felted balloon but it would be heavy and difficult to look like it was floating.  I gave it some thought and decided to use a vintage mercury glass Christmas ornament as the balloon instead.  Now it actually appears to be floating and it doesn't weigh down the elephants trunk.
