My initial attempt which may well change...
Used cows, owl eyes, face, paint drops, tree and paint bucket.

Re: August 10 Contest - Combination

I tried really, really hard not to look at any entries before I got mine in. Needed to face this challenge with no preconceived notions. Me & the cows got to know each other really well.

Used the eagle eyes, tree, boat launch, chess pieces, can, cows and paint drops.

Everyone did such great work...

Re: August 10 Contest - Combination

What fantastic imaginations you all have!! I’ve enjoyed looking at each entry. Lots of wows and LOLs from this side of the internet.

My entry uses: owl eyes, chess, cows, face, paint bucket and paint drops.

Good luck to all.
