My Process — Ellie the Elephant

After a few frustrating weeks, I decided to take a break and paint for me. 
I just needed to remember what makes me happy—painting!


I started with collage.

Then I slathered it with paint. FUN!

I painted Ellie, then cut her out.

Then I sewed her a skirt, but as fun as it was, it didn't work.


Painting in miniature.


Assembling the elements.


Finish!

Well there was a bit of futzing around in Photoshop, but I won't bore you with that.
