What a Pantomime

Hello Everyone from a sunny NE UK coast. First time it has been really sunny for a while and the forecast says sun until the weekend-yipee. Thank you for calling in and making a sunny day even brighter :)

At Art Journal Journey we are all still happily 'going down to the woods' chosen by Chris for the theme this month. So many wonderful ideas from people and lots of them full of fun so why not click here to see all the entries in their full splendour all in one place

So today I decided to go down the pantomime route with my page and I wrote a simple poem to describe what was happening in the scene. You need to read it as though you were a child at a panto. I used one of our photographs as a background and added things I had drawn years ago as well some I had kept from way back when.

Deep in the wood they gathered together
Hidden away from the awful weather.
The Fairy Queen was 200 today 
And for many years she had hidden away.
The Wicked Witch had frightened her so
More than anyone else would know.
Along came Fred, a wood cutter's son,
Then her life, once again, had begun
The other fairies had flown away
So clowns and chickens helped her to stay.
They arranged a party along with Fred
And played some music by Simple Red?
The Easter Bunny, a bit of a rake,
 Brought along a huge carrot cake,
There was lots of fun and plenty of laughter
So all of them lived--


Hope you have agreat day

Love Chrissie xx
