10  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / A poetic Halloween neighbourhood. on: October 29, 2014 12:16:12 PM
I was so excited to see a block house swap come up, and Ive been itching to get back into paper crafting - so the halloween swap was just up my street.
In the end, I began by writing a rather spooky poem...... followed by the creation of a little neighbourhood. Each house was sent to a different partner. You will see that each partner received a different character from the poem.
The "moon", in the window which appears when you hold it up to the light, came by pure accident. I stamped and embossed onto something which we call kite paper over here - creates a rather spooky effect dont you think.
The piece was finished by tucking the poem into the door at the back which means the whole piece becomes almost like a little book when you look at the back.

Anyhow...... I will start you with the pictures and end you with the poem ...... dont get scared though mwahhahahaha










"And now for the poem Wink "
In an ancient woodland, not far from me
Lies a house thats called Chelwood thats dead as can be.
How can a house be dead you cry
Well read on dear friend and Ill tell you why..

In 1808 the master did write,
That music could be heard in the depth of the night
And though he would pace up and down on the stairs,
Nothing could be seen, nothing was there.

He ordered the priest to come and spy,
But even the church could not work out why,
The piano would play, and the gramophone sing,
The violin screeched and the doorbells would ring

In 1815 the master did write
Im going quite mad from this noise in the night.
Im sure I heard footsteps around and about,
But no one was there when I gave a shout

It was that same year that the locals do say,
The master stopped visiting in town by the day
So they sent young Gemma, a brave lass its said,
Though Im saddened to tell you that Gemma too is dead



She was found the next morning, Dead by Fears
Frozen stiff still covering her ears
And the music was calling from out of the door
And the Master was lying flat on the floor

Now, the next bit seems odd but Ive heard it tell
That over his corpse danced 4 ladies from hell
Singing and dancing and cavorting with glee
A gaggle of witches to bring sin to thee

And so it was decided, this house had to go
The priest was dragged back even though he screamed no
And in a circle round the house the villages stood
As the priest muttered words from under his hood

And as the prayer was spoken, the house did scream
Windows and doors and chimneys gave out steam
And as if with one almighty sigh
The house in front of them began to die

This house called Chelwood is a beautiful spot
Myself and my children walk there a lot
My son found a piano key just the other day
And Im sure last night I heard it play..
