ANTHROPOLOGIE : ELLY THE ELEPHANT

Spring brought all sorts of new projects at Anthropologie including building a life-size elephant! (Well, you know, maybe a teenager sized elephant). Her canvas "skin" is rough and wrinkled from layers of rolled on Elmer's glue and latex paint and pretty convincing.... Although not pictured, her tail is my favorite part as it's made from long dried grass.

I was lucky enough to have an occasional hand with the project (literally to keep her from falling down/apart). Below are some progress shots with my wonderful helper Kelsey.
