The Three Muses Challenge - OLD FASHIONED


I found this great photo in an e-Vint collage sheet.  To me it appears that the gals are looking for insects in their under garments and a story formed from there.  The newspaper clipping has a headline "Defiant students protest and stir up a political ant nest" (hence the ants).
I have altered the photo somewhat by adding colour.  Two papers were used in the background - one from Maya and one from Berna Datema, both of Scrapbookgraphics.

  3. Love your injection of humour with the ants, Marie! I'd seen this photo & thought they were comparing the size of their 'chests!!!' Your turn to have a 'standing ovation today!!'

  15. Ants in their pants eh? Ooh, I just had a thought of how uncomfortable it would be to have ants in your corset... bet it takes about half an hour to get out of it! When I was a child I once picked up a piece of glass that was on top of an ants nest and the entire colony ran up my arm into my clothes... It was not a pleasant experience! That will teach me to touch things I was told not to!

  16. Marie, this is so funny that I laughed out loud when I saw the inspiration piece for the 3 Muses this week. I especially love the way the ant is peeking down the decolletages of the ladies. And aren't these ladies tiny, and not just the corsetted torsos.

  17. Glad I am not in this group of gals, Marie...nothing could be worse than the crawly feeling of "ants in your pants"!! Great presentation for this theme.
