WHY an elephant Stencil? I love elephants and we have a lot of family connections with elephants! My uncle Gerd used to work as a zoo keeper at the zoo in Wuppertal. His stories of the elephants always fascinated me the most. And as a little child my grandaunt Margot used to tell me the story of the Tuffi a female circus elephant who jumped out the famous monorail in Wuppertal into the river in 1950 (no elephant seriously hurt!). And I loved all kinds of stories elephant related…and Elephants can be represent so many things..memory, strength,  mental strength, fun, intelligence. Need more reasons or an elephant stencil? Nope- LOL- ok…let’s continue on

Here is what I created for today:

Loved working on this big canvas and applying layered stencils and collage elements and then spray paint – there is a lot of texture on this canvas.

    Love your elephant stencil, Nat. I could see using this stencil in my “Circus” art pages and much more. I’ve always loved the circus, especially the decorated elephants! Thanks for the stencil giveaway. I’ll be commenting on all of the blogs in hopes of winning this charming stencil:)

    I love this stencil… Wait, let me repeat: I loooove this stencil!!! I had so much fun creating with it! Your layered elephants are brilliant. It’s like they are floating in the night (we can start counting elephants instead of sheep ;-)) Also: I kind of hope you spray painted it somewhere in your neighbourhood… I’m by no means implying you would (or should) do such a thing! But it would make pretty awesome Hamburg street art…
