For the past few days I have been tossing ideas around for the One Powerful Hour challenge of "Feathered Friends" It wasn't until I surfed over to Mixed Media Monday that inspiration hit me.
Mixed Media Monday wanted us to use numbers in our pieces this week. When i saw that i was instantly reminded of a childhood nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence" so here is my interpretation of the two themes, numbers and feathered friends mixed together with a dash of nursery rhyme mixed in.
Sing a song of sixpence lyrics
(Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie)
Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!
Hope you enjoy!
