A fractured fairy tale

A group of us that went to the Michael deMeng workshop in Portugal this summer decided when we came home that we would work on another project and share the results on a date in November......well most of us missed that date and have continued to work on our pieces! We have a new reveal date of December 10th but I admit to having got a bit fed up with my project hanging around part done so today I decided enough was enough and I've finished it!
The theme of our projects is fractured fairy tales click to see what that is

 Meet Mr F Prince F.R.O.G.c.... Fellow of the Royal Organisation of Green clairvoyants...... 
pond clairvoyant extraordinare!

 Here he is in his clairvoyant office at the bottom of the pond................

 all dressed up in his tie.....................

 with his fancy crystal ball....................

 ......his office is decorated with pearl acorns.....

and ferns and hung about with spotted spiders.

And here is my fractured fairy tale!
Are you sitting comfortably? 
Then I will begin..............Once upon a time there was a clairvoyant.....Mr F Prince …...he was a very good clairvoyant, he even belonged to a professional body......F.R.O.G.c......Fellow of the Royal Organisation of Green clairvoyants. He worked from his office at the bottom of the pond, turn left at the lily pad and ask the snail.

One day he was sitting at the edge of the pond lamenting the loss of his crystal ball.......it had been broken by a bunch of pesky pissed newts a few days previously. He could not work without his crystal ball.....what was he to do?

He had often see the Princess running along the river bank playing with her golden ball......he normally took little notice of her as she was often rude to him......once she had even called him a warty old toad …..TOAD? TOAD? I'm a FROG! But today he was watching her carefully, if he was nice to her would she come close enough for him to nab that ball? It would make a perfect replacement for his broken crystal ball.
Now being a clairvoyant he had seen what his future might be......kiss...turn into prince.....live at palace with spoiled Princess......no thanks.....all he wanted was that ball.

So, he decided on a charm offensive......to attract her attention he did spectacular dives into the pond, leapt athletically from lily pad to lily pad until he was exhausted...............just as he thought it wasn't going to work the Princess wandered over to see what this strange creature was up to.
Once she was close enough the frog took one more giant leap and landed one almighty huge sloppy slimy kiss straight on her mouth! The Princess was so horrified and so busy jumping up and down shouting EW! EW! EW! and wiping her mouth that she didn't notice the frog pick up her golden ball and jump into the pond with it.
So, Mr Prince had a new crystal ball and the Princess had to go home to her father the King and explain how a frog kissed her and that's how she lost yet another really expensive golden glass ball!
The end.

That came out great. I had seen the frog with the baby head before on your blog and wondered how it would look finished. Great job you did on his positioning and the little creatures around him. Very nice! Very artsy too. I'm sure it involved a lot of thinking and rethinking
