Flash Back Friday
This is another of my favourite projects from 2013
I had learnt a lot from the previous shoe
project and of course I had the other shoe left from the pair!
So I wanted to create a kind of Wizard of Oz
theme for Imaginarium Designs. So I have
started with a ruby slipper, painting the whole shoe
with dimensional magic and sprinkling over with fine
red glitter. It still looks glittery today.
I have painted a lot of the chipboard
with Matt black spray paint
a technique I still use today.
The back also has to be tidy and interesting.
Here you can see my red bottle top on the
heel. The reason for this
was that the elements inside the shoe seemed to
be on a lean, so I straightened them by
popping the bottle cap on the heel...problem solved !!
Even the tall heel is a place to pop
The Chipboard children are painted black and
covered with Dimensional magic to give
a gloss look.
They have not faded over the years and still look fabulous
To finish the look I have added a paper
yellow brick road.
When you do a project well and
use good products and techniques
it will last the test of time.
