I love creating for CHA!!!
I always try to come up with one
REALLLLY OUTTA THE BOX creation!
This year was no exception!
I don't know why, but I love decorating shoes.
and I must say, I'm not a huge shoe person.
I had it in my head I wanted to do
a pair of those big 'ole pumps.
You know....the kind where you could
twist you ankle just walking across the floor....
(maybe you are a bit more talented in the walking
department than I!!)
While on a our way to a Consumer Show....
Cheryl and I went to this second hand store....
and there they were...the shoes I had been looking for
Black Leather with studded heals!!
I really wish I had taken of before picture....
but here is the after picture!!
With a stipple brush, I applied
Viva Colour Ferro ~ Amber Gold to base of the shoes.
I used various supplies on my Platform shoes...
one is the Shabby Beige ~ Darjeeling Daisy by Petaloo
colored with various Luminarte ~ Primary Elements mixed with
Bind and Resist, and Luminarte ~ Silk Acrylic Glazes.
Then accented with Viva Colour ~ Precious Metal Effect Paint
and a BEAUTIFUL antique button.
Being a HUGE LOVER of ALL THINGS Vintage Lace,
I found just the perfect piece of lace to add to my shoes.
A little tip.....gently spritz the lace with a bit of water
to help the Luminarte ~ Silks Acrylic Glaze
wick into the treads.
I scrounged around and found a large chippie,
which I cut apart, painted with
Luminarte ~ Silk Acrylic Glaze
and a bit of Golden ~ Glass Beads.
I finished off my creation with
various Mini Pearl Daises by Petaloo
accented with various colors.
I hope you've enjoyed my "outta the box"
