Put kettle on Nellie



Art Journal Journey's  theme is Houses, this is my second page using the same house stencil with grunge paste for a bit of texture. . I used an inked, stamped and stenciled background, using distress inks. I had this stamp of the Elephant  and the tune of  -''Nellie the Elephant'', packing her trunk and going back to the jungle -buzzing in my head. So the twist to my story is that this is the Rajah , trumpeting to Nellie, in the street where they live to, 'Put the Kettle On' as company is coming  from the jungle for tea.. Can you picture the scene, I can.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
