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.
