Round 10 RESULTS!

This was one of the HARDEST rounds to judge.  It really took myself and my guest judge alot of discussing back and forth before deciding who would be the top 2.

Essentially all three of you did an amazing job.  And the poems you chose just made the sets cuter and funnier all around.  It was really fun to see what you chose and how you interpreted it.

However there were a couple that seemed to really just fit together more than the others, and those are the two that are moving on.

1st – JO –Biological Reflections:Ogden Nash
Biological Reflections:Ogden Nash – by JO on
Jo- This all just came together. Neither the set nor the poem was overpowered by the other. It was simple and beautiful and really worked *together* to make a whole set.

2nd – Les! –
My brush and my love and my dream .
My brush and my love and my dream . – by Les ! on
Les! – When you do an interior you don’t just do a room, you literally *make* the entire interior. Its a fun style that you don’t see often and that’s one reason that I really love it. I thought it was gorgeous and I loved the tenderness that the poem gave it.

Ugh! This was such a hard decision. Because I feel that you actually chose the hardest poems to work with, and in some ways had the most creative approaches. However, we felt that since you did have what is considered the easier of the three choices – we really needed to be wowed. We felt that the sets wouldn’t stand alone without the poems as well as with the poems. (hope that made sense) IOW – before reading the poems…we didn’t necessarily love them as much. So as I talked about before the sets really needed the poems in order to work as a whole. That was essentially the deciding factor, but not one we made lightly. Thanks so much for participating! You have great ideas and awesome sets. I look forward to seeing what you do in the future. 🙂 (below are both entries from JJMARIE)
Tableau at Twilight
Tableau at Twilight – by JJMAR!E on
Poem – ableau at Twilight

I sit in the dusk. I am all alone.
Enter a child and an ice-cream cone.
A parent is easily beguiled
By sight of this coniferous child.
The friendly embers warmer gleam,
The cone begins to drip ice cream.
Cones are composed of many a vitamin.
My lap is not the place to bitamin.
Although my raiment is not chinchilla,
I flinch to see it become vanilla.
Coniferous child, when vanilla melts
I’d rather it melted somewhere else.
Exit child with remains of cone.
I sit in the dusk. I am all alone,
Muttering spells like an angry Druid,
Alone, in the dusk, with the cleaning fluid.

Poem by Ogden Nash
The guy at the bottom is the bus boy and the yellow is the ice cream. The kid is walking away and its a magical day outside but the guy can’t see that because he hates his job. I just thought I’d clarify because it’s kind of confusing. (written by JJMARIE)
The People Upstairs
The People Upstairs – by JJMAR!E on
Poem – The People Upstairs

The people upstairs all practise ballet
Their living room is a bowling alley
Their bedroom is full of conducted tours.
Their radio is louder than yours,
They celebrate week-ends all the week.
When they take a shower, your ceilings leak.
They try to get their parties to mix
By supplying their guests with Pogo sticks,
And when their fun at last abates,
They go to the bathroom on roller skates.
I might love the people upstairs more
If only they lived on another floor

by Ogden Nash
(This was my favorite of the two)
