Don't mind me. I fall in love with the strangest images sometimes. Our challenge on the Art 'n' Soul Flickr Group is to alter a jigsaw puzzle piece. Lots of people use the large, children's floor puzzle pieces, but I didn't have any so I made my own according to the template provided. It is roughly 3 1/2 inches square.
The alteration requirement was only that it be monochromatic. So I chose a dark, black-green color and used it in various densities and shades and a black silk cord for a hanger.
Having fallen in love with these elephants, I found a way to color and use them, along with some ornamental grass and a sprig of Eucalyptus, also colored to match.
To me, the mamma and baby elephant going off to see their world is a lovely metaphor for mammas and babies everywhere. And I love the shapes they make as they trudge off into the unknown in search of their destiny.
"Behold I and the children that the Lord hath given me, we are for signs and wonders."
Here is the back side, which shows

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll be over to see you, too!
