Apparently green makes you think more creatively. Red though is my favourite, it yells confidence (orange speaks it but red yells)
So even though I could definitely do with a bit of eye makeup and a smudge of lipstick…and maybe a little blusher, the red was what I needed today.
It works too, I’ve always loved it, even as a child it was the colour I most liked to wear, girlie pink? Nah, give me red any day.
At this time of year, nature does it best. It might be a bit worried about winter but it’s putting on a show.
So I tripped round the garden taking photos of all the red I could see;
This is the ring I made at my silversmithing course last week. The option was for another un naturally thin silver ring, so when I spied a piece of copper with a leaf vein print on it, I had to ask if I could use it.
After making it, it was covered in firescale and looked like this:
Unlike the silver the week before, it wouldn’t polish off and I didn’t want to use anything abrasive that could destroy the delicate leaf print, so ta da…
You don’t get much redder than ketchup, see all about red this week!
15 minutes sitting in a pot of tomato sauce and a quick polish with a cloth…
Perfect for Philip. He even wore it.
And now I’m off to put on my red shoes…lets dance.
