Chunky elephant book








I love elephants, my mother collected them, and as I inherited them, they are now all over the house. Stone, pottery, metal, alabaster from Italy, volcanic ash ( I bought that one from Etna), glass, crystal,, and loads of wooden ones. I am now adding to them by making books with them in. (no not the ornaments)
These are for a swap for a chunky book. As I have already done an altered book, I thought this would be a doddle. I have lost my way a bit, and found them a chore. It will be interesting to see what I get back. They are a mixture of collage, stamping, friendly plastic, and fibres.

Great elephant pages Wendy, I love how you've managed to make them all so different with lots of detail - guess you had a lot of inspiration being surrounded by so many ornamental ones.

Love your bird pages too! I remember making some of those a few years ago.

Hope you do make some charms - your sewing themed art is always so lovely.
