Schaschke and Gane

Two lovely friends recently had a flat-warming. I decided to take the fimo elephants to the next level and put them on a platform.

I asked Father Dear to cut me a nice slice of wood from one of the many bits of tree we have lying about the garden- waiting to be used. I must use this material more in future! Really enjoyed painting on in and it makes a really lovely platform for the little figurines!

The elephants represent both Lynsey (Schaschke) and Tom (Gane)

Lynsey's elephant:
Colour: The closest I could get to a teal- her fav- I'm running out of fimo colours. Must invest in some more!
Objects: And behind Lynsey's elephant are things she likes- sushi and art books etc.

Tom's elephant:
Colour: Blue- his fav. I had to marble it with white since I didn't have enough blue- but I quite like how it came out :)
Objects: Behind Tom's elephant - a couple of video game references- mushrooms from Mario Kart and an Xbox 360 controller and a Duck. He likes ducks :P

Both the elephants are holding a little home together. They look pretty cute if I may say so myself!

A friend of mine suggested I should open at Etsy shop. And the more I think about it, I think I will. When I was making this present I kept thinking I should sell all things elephant :) Watch this space for more information. 

SPK's Elephant Circus

April the 4th was quite a sad day for me! It was my last official day working for SmallPetitKlein. It's been an amazing journey. What a great opportunity! I met the BEST people and discovered what it was like to work on a job you love doing :D Miss them all everyday!

So before I left I decided to make all of Team SPK something to thank them for the experience and something to remember me by ;)
And of course- what better than making them elephants?
I got a box for each of the lovely people I worked with: Holly, Yolanda, Sarah, Rob, Allan and Tommy and inside there was….

 Yolanda's elephant with a Yoyo (her nickname)
 Tommy's elephant- he's got awesome spiky hair which defies gravity!
Sarah's Elephant- with a deer-stalker hat- I nicknamed her Sherlock- cannot remember why exactly now…
Allan's elephant- he likes stars :) and has fun glasses

Rob's elephant- he loves Beyonce. So it only seemed right to put a ring on it ;)

Holly's elephant- She's an amazing baker! Her edible creations are to die for :)

Isabel's Adventures Continued...

So here's the last part of Isabel's artwork which I created for SPK :)

In the story, Isabel comes across a one eyed giant… And so here's my take on it. To be honest I'm not entirely happy with this character. I may revisit this in time and change it. It's the only one out of the line up below that I'm not convinced is finished...

Here's the final line up :)
