Three Muses Challenge: "Things With Wings"

This one was such fun. No particular image was provided; we just had to use the "wings" theme.

I love this! Calls to mind Calder's wonderful circus pieces, which always make me smile. Dumbo should have been so lucky as to have butterfly wings.

Annie- I can't take credit for the background circus scene- it was a freebie from artefacts blog (see credits in my posting). The elephants were scanned from black and white outline images in a bargain book I got called "The Ultimate Design Source Book," and I added color and texture in Photoshop elements. Thanks for your nice comments.

Hi there! I love your circus collage with its vibrant colours and great design. Here at the Muses we don't post a picture to work on. We just throw up a theme which our artists can take anywhere they like and have a lot of fun along the way.
If you are interested and have the time, another challenge is opening next Monday, November 1. It is open to all types of art and there are no rules or rights or wrongs. Each week a one word theme will be posted and you can take it anywhere you like. Our opening word is TIME.
Check us out at http://takeaword.blogspot.com

Thanks so much for taking part in the Muses challenge this week.
