New Shoes

Good afternoon everyone. Hope you are all well and getting lots of crafting done since the weather is too bad to go anywhere nice. I went to the Artstamps Scotland fair on Saturday morning and had a lovely relaxing time. I got some new stamps - Wild Rose Studio and Stampasaurus; some promarkers; flowers; buttons; only 1 pack of papers and also some textile medium stuff for decorating fabrics and some opal dust. Not much to show for the money I spent but never mind...it was good fun and I am using the things I bought.

After that we went to the Corstorphine summer fair. It was a gorgeous day but since the fair isonly run every 2 years, it was VERY busy. Lots of LONG queues and moany children who were all hot and bothered...and tired lol.

By the time I got home at 5ish, my feet were killing me. I got up on the bed and lay and watched tv with Wee Steven for a while until I could stand any pressure on my feet then I set to work, lol

I have made a card with one of my new stamps but its a DT card so I can't show it yet. I can, however, show you my...shoes in progress, lol...these are hand decorated with paper napkins and have dried overnight band had opal dust added to the flowers but they still need another coat and more drying before they are finished. Think they will go fab with some summer shorts or dresses. Bright summery colours, lol







Ingredients:
Paper Napkins;
Textile Medium;
Opal Dust;
Plimsoles;

Sealer.


Challenges:

These are absolutely fab!! I love them! You must have lots of patience, I'm a bit of a devil when it comes to letting things dry, I have to have a prod and a poke, then end up ruining it because I just can't leave alone.
Love Elaine xx
