Elizabethan Assignment

Emily had an assignment due last week, so last weekend a good amount of time was spent researching, writing and decorating two letters supposedly written by a young person present at a royal command Shakespearean performance.

She did a wonderful job.
She wrote the two letters in Elizabethan style (as found here) and printed them in CloisterBlack font.
The costumes were inspired especially by The Enchanted Dolls House books and drawn in black ink then watercoloured.

The letters were transported by horseback (schoolbus) to their recipient (the English teacher) in an authentic leather (suede fabric) pouch, tied with leather.

A girl after my own heart ...
