Favourite Poem Journal Page

Hi All from a dark and wet UK Coast. We are still decorating-well one of us is and the other is making drinks and snacks and finding time to craft and compute :)

At Art Journal Journey the theme for April is 'Favourite poems or quotes' so lots to think about with that theme. I just did my blog feed and saw that I have chosen the same poem as dear Valerie posted this morning. Amazing that out of so many poems we have chosen the same one. I did this yesterday before I saw hers.

This is my version of John Donne's wonderful 

                Elegy IX: The Autumnal

This and, one other of John Donne's poems helped me through a very shaky time in my life. 
I chose Vanessa Redgrave-old and young and one of our own photographs as a background for the subject of the poem

The 'decorator' says we need more paint so I had better get organised and hope that B&Q are open today

 Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts

Love Chrissie xx

How interesting that you both chose the same poem.
This is very original and illustrates the quote so well. I think she looks even better now than she did then.
