Green Paper November Challenge - A present from Papa


Mary from Green Paper has set this month's collage challenge.  The only instruction is that we have to use at least a part of each of the elements in the provided sheet (shown below).  


I made a 6"x4" postcard, using a blended paper background (a technique learnt on Mary's Collage Coterie course).  The story with this postcard is that this little girl's Papa has been in India for many months, seeking out new opportunities.  He has sent  his beloved daughter, Rosana,  a toy elephant because he has seen them in the wild.

Well looks like you got it done in time after all! Cool how you managed to get her holding the elephant. I think it is neat to see everyone's interpretation! Jewels

Oh this is so adorable ( as is the chubby baby ) How on earth did you get that tiny elephant in her hand ? I love the story.

Great story and I love your postcard, Jo! I am impressed that you downsized the elephant just enough to fit into her little hands.
