Mom and Baby Giraffe

Made by GrandmaMonster

Mom is 8 feet tall…..One of my favorites…done with lots of newspapers and masking tape for the form. layers of paper strips and paste for strength. When finished with the paper I then basically painted it with fabric dipped in glue.

    • funny that you mention the pig makes you smile. When I completed this project and displayed it at an art show, I noticed people looking up at the pig and smiling. I figured after that, if I can make people smile with my art, I have created something good.!! Thank you

  1. Grandma is a monster. I love the giraffes. I began making two of them last June (NOT 8′ tall), and now I need to check if one will go under the other. I really love that. Thank you for showing us. You did a great job, and I am happy to see them.

    The pig, however, is the limit. It is fun beyond belief and well done. His position is perfect, and the expression on that face with the open mouth is perfect. (You must remember Pink Floyd “Pigs on the Wing.” Fantastic.)

    These photos made my day. Happiness and joy to perfection.

  2. Wow! You don’t do small, do you? Go big or go home as they say! Nice job on both the giraffes and the pig….love the surprised look on his face!
