Beatrix Potter Baby Elephant Collage - PPA35


I just love creating butterfly and baby elephant collages with scraps of card stock, scrapbooking papers, recycled vintage children's books and old magazines!

Using tweezers, the tiny shapes are carefully set atop dimensionals and their little ears gently folded back to bring them to life and it's all laid out on cold pressed watercolour paper :o)

I used recycled some vintage Beatrix Potter stories for this Baby Elephant Collage and am entering it in this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge ~ which is Make Anything BUT a Card :o)

 There are so many wonderful paper crafts over there to enjoy!!
