The Owl & the Pussycat
Monthly Challenge – June 2020

The first verse of Edward Lear’s Nonsense Poem was the inspiration for this month’s challenge. Edward Lear was also a wonderful painter. Perhaps that is why he could conjure up such beautiful imagery and that is what I attempted to pay homage to with this months lovely kit.
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"
