Journal 52 You Make me smile

The prompt for us for  week 3  at Journal 52  is  -You make me smile.


Lots of things can make me smile, but when I saw the prompt the tune--
'Nellie the elephant packed her trunk and trundled off to the jungle',
 popped into my head and wouldn't go away.
So here is Nellie, picking her way daintily through the tulips, [ Oh dear, cue for another old  song-Tip toe through the tulips]. off on her holidays I think.
So far she has only squashed one house on her way.
Materials used -- Serviettes for the tulips and elephant. Various masks, stamps and paints. Die cut strip of houses.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I hope this  makes you smile a little as well.
