I’ve been using my baby elephant digital image in different ways, and here is the latest result….a mixed media print. I painted and distressed a background in blue, teal and oatmeal to create my paper… added in my blue bird and stencil stenciled in my elephant using a digital stencil I created from my original drawing… then I painted in some of my long stem florals that you may have seen used a few weeks back in my Long Stem Floral Digital Paper Pack. I gave a print of this to my friend’s 3 year old daughter who just loved it! I’m quite sure the next time I go over it will be up on her bedroom wall and she will take me by hand to see it! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day! Deena
