Did You Hear Something?



Welcome to the summer hop of mixed media fun with Nathalie Kalbach and her fabulous Foam, Cling Rubber Stamp and Stencil Sets made for Stampendous!  I really wanted to create something fun for my granddaughter.  When I first saw the elephant set, I immediately thought of Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss.  So with that being said, here’s my fun Horton inspired canvas.  You’ll notice that I didn’t create my elephant just like Horton, however, he’s pretty close.



Here’s what I used to create this canvas:

Here’s a list of my teammates playing along today:

Hugs,

Lea
