HAVE TOOS vs WANT TOOS!!!
It's been a week full of them!!! School shopping, haircuts, dentist appointments, DT assignments, kit assemblege.....throw in an unscheduled day at work and it makes a girl wanna go CRAZY and create something.........JUST CAUSE...so that's what I did!!! that's where the WANT TOOS came in.
I had seen the idea for my creation in a Stampington and Co magazine called HandCrafted...I just can't get enough of their magazines!!! I tried to buy a new pair of shoes but.....to no avail!! So, I decided to use an old pair of shoes I had, you can see they were blue with flowers....SO the process began......old music paper, stamps, paint, Matte Medium, fabric, and something different...Twinkling H2O's.
I have never worked with them before and thought what the heck.....I'm game!!! now I had received these little goodies before the days that the company was acquired by Creative Imaginations so I'm not sure if the colors I used will coordinate with the colors now being released, they are Pomegranate, Wild Vine and Pink Grapefruit. One thing I did find out was this product prefers a porous surface but will work if coaxed on a non porus surface.
I hand painted with them, used a mask and even did my "dipping" process on the flower....and it worked and looked luscious!!! to say the least. When I completed my creative process, I sprayed them with Super Seal....and I can't wait to wear them.....yes I will wear them!!
Now, I'm off to work on my HAVE TOOS list.....have a great day!!
While getting lost in blogland I came across this amazing blog, Alter It Monthly and this months theme is MUSIC....and thought of my altered shoes.
