Elephants on the Brain

I've got elephants on the brain... or uh... on the brush, I mean.  These little watercolors are so fun to make and they have sold really well, so I had to make more!    There must be a lot of nursery decorating going on out there and these are perfect for it :)

You can check out my Tutorial for Stenciled Watercolors if you want to make your own.

And here's a new design.... a little blue bird.  What do you think?  Maybe do this one in different colors?  


  1. Love love love this little blue bird! It really feels "fresh". I also read your tutorial on the stenciling of water colour. Thanks very much for sharing that, I will be on the look out for elephant stencils now. lol

  2. They are so cute! Love the bird one x

  3. I. AM. IN. LOVE.
    Those are just amazing. I couldn't stop looking at them... and then the little bird? So adorable. I am running right now to check out your tutorial. Then I suppose I will be running to the store for some watercolor! Clicking to follow... happy Friday! Jules
    Ps thanks for coming over to look at my foot washing station!

  4. I love the bird too! They are all adorable!

  5. Love the elephants! I especially like the one that has an ear where the paint "backwashed"...that was either a happy accident or genius!
    The little bird is adorable...so sweet! Thanks for sharing Elise :)

  6. These are adorable, I'm going to look at your tutorial now. I'm in the process of decorating my daughter's nursery and I wanted a slight African touch to it (long story why) and that elephant would be perfect!!

  7. ooh, I love these! elephants are the best :)

  8. very cool so simple...I know a lot of people seem to be in love with elephants lately

  9. I love this, Elise! My girls and I are trying to discover more artistic ways to use the watercolors. I think they will love this! I'll check out your tutorial. I'm going to follow, as well.
