Red and Green

This weekend passed really quickly, and now Monday is nearly over. I went on a course with Clare yesterday, where we made altered books-well-altered books that had already been made. Hers is great-you can see it here! I have not done anything like that before so it was interesting. I have nearly finished my book, but have no pictures to show yet. Maybe tomorrow! Thanks for all the lovely comments on Frida-her head is swelling!
These few pictures all have red and green in them. I went to the shops at lunchtime to get a sandwich. Walking in front of me is Elizabeth 1st. I am always seeing her walking around Woolwich-she has the most amazing red curly hair-just like the Queen! It was too good a chance to miss for a photo-though I would love a proper one of her face-maybe I will be brave one day and ask her-but it just seems such a weird thing to do!
I have put Elizabeth on the lamp post in this one!

A little oil painting from Rochester.

An old fashioned weighing machine-with a lovely speckled green paint finish.
The Dickens Cafe with a red sun shade.

look forward to seeing the book,
Elizabeth 1st, wow her hair is a magnificent colour. I'm with you, I would have to pluck up courage to ask her for a front view.

Love the pic of Elizabeth on the lamp post.

I looked at Clare's book - lovely! I'm looking forward to seeing what you've done.
(My middle daughter's flat is in Crouch End but she's let it as she's living somewhere else now!)

I do love the green/red old-school scale, it's pretty sweet!

Can't wait to see pics of the book! :D

Looking forward to seeing your book! Love the red and green theme - I may have to borrow that for a future post!
