The Three Muses - Wild Things


This bored little boy from PaperWhimsy just needed an exotic place to perch, don't you think? What better way to travel than by elephant and this fine beast looks as though he knows exactly where's he's going. I created this assemblage using a cigar box lid and it is my entry for this week's The Three Muses challenge.

Wow Heather.

This is wonderful. How nonchalant your little fellow looks astride his elephant. Such a creative and clever take on the challenge. Whimsical is the word that comes to mind.

It makes me so happy to see you bring your considerable talents to our challenges, Heather. A cigar box lid never looked so good!! Isn't it great the little guy is so confident he rides side saddle?!?! Very creative.

I think your little boy is bored because he gets to ride on an Elephant every day. This is so whimsical and such fun.
