But back to the business at hand, I know you remember me telling you about these little baby shoes on Thrifty Tuesday...
I had hoped to get both of them done but only got one finished.
I started off by removing the laces and cleaning the shoes good, then painted the soles black and the upper parts white
Did a little sketch of a snowman on the toe and just let the imagination take over. Really wasn't sure at this point just what I was going to do on the whole shoe...Click on the above picture and you can see the sketching....
I added the words SNOW BUDDIES across the toe. On the heel and sides I painted a blue sky and snow with a Snowman standing in front of a cabin with pine trees all around. I painted the stitch seam lines pink to match the clothing of the snowman. I'm doing one in a hot pink for MooMoo and a purple for Rissa...their favorite colors
click on pictures to get a good look at the painting.
I added sheer pink ribbon for the laces and taking an ice pick made a hole in the top of the back and added a hang loop out of the same sheer ribbon. Painted the child,s name and the year on the bottom and I'm thinking about adding miniture dolls and Teddies or packages in the opening to make it look like a mini stocking hanging on the tree.
Well what do you think..does it look ok, or silly..
I am posting this on D Dzines....where DeeDee is hosting Art work Friday.
