CIRCUS ELEPHANTS...

fun?
hopefully no more. 

my post today started just as a crafty project but when i was starting to write, it  just hit me. it hit me hard.

and i started googling about circus elephants while thinking of cecil, the lion that was just killed in the name of fun. i felt really bad. so bad i was just thinking to start another project but no, i chose not to. 
instead, i will use this project as an eye opener. as an awareness. as an advocacy.

and, i will use my banner project to honor all animals, especially the ones suffering in captivity.

let me introduce you to 
-miss ellie or mr ellie-
whatever the gender might be.
at one time we really did not know better, but now we do, right?
right!

anyhow, these letters (font) are from a cricut cart called carousel. it is a beautiful cart.
lots of pretty images.
the embossing was done with a sizzix folder from tim holtz called: springtime backgrounds.
so pretty!

these blue circles were used to add dimension instead using pop dots.
(to tell you the truth i did this not because i have no pop dots but because i was too lazy to get up to get them, lol)

the beautiful pachyderm is an svg from the digi playground.
it was a pleasure to put together.
i did ink the edges for definition and also did some dry embossing on the body with an old fiskars texture plate i had in my stash.

the scalloped banner sections are also from the digi playground.

while googling about them i found out many circuses will be stopping the use of these animals.
 i was happy to read that, we are getting there.

well, and this is all for today.

i am hoping you enjoyed today's project, i really do.

take care and have a great day!
