Three Muses Challenge-Things with Wings


I do find that I enjoy putting wings on people...I don't really see the point of flying cows, or flying toasters...but wings are so--freeing! Wings allow you to go where you otherwise wouldn't-or couldn't. Wings give you breathing room, and a chance to explore.

And, if you don't like where you are...you can just fly away!

Background texture from Rubyblossom, and an overlay I made in a Digital Montage workshop; text from Graphics Fairy--isn't the penmanship beautiful!. The wing is a piece of a challenge element from DIgital Whisper and the lovely child is a Currier ane Ives illustration from a freebie from Elizabeth Golden at the Last Door Down the Hall. Bugs and random flourishes are brushes.

  6. We were watching Superman yesterday and had the conversation - "If you could fly, why would you want to walk?" Rather like your post - wouldn't it be wonderful to flutter about like your creation can?!
