Ok, it's a female thing. We never have enough shoes. Yes, we own 5 pairs black, but they all are different in height or shape ..according to.. hmm...circumstances (:o) or...down to our whim...and..that's how it is...if you're looking for the right one you just need right now....you can't find it.
I was looking for some turqoise boots......but you'll have a guess.......
As i'm never running out of ideas, i asked my one and only Artist Andy Skinner, if it's possible to prepare leather for painting and he said: Gesso works fine!!!! Well, this was the needed answer to start my project....and i pimped my boots.
In between i had a hard disk crash and the first picture of my boots is gone.....but.......you can still see the original beige colour at the bootleg
Thus..i started with Gesso followed by aquamarine acrylic paint
Because it's not that easy to stamp directly onto the boot, i used tissue paper.
After stamping, i spritzed the tissue with dylusions and coloured the roses as you would normaly do for a journal. Teared the motif..
Adhered to boots with Ourdoor Mod Podge
I applyed Dazzling Metallics *Glourious Gold* on top with my fingers to blend everything in...and two finish coats with Mod Podge for sealing
Yes, they are wearable....ask me....you only need to be brave, because people stare at your feets (:o)
Even more a notice. To bringe a little alternation to my art, i booked
The new challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show is called : Tape it Up!
It's all about using washi tape, tissue tape, masking tape....or even a handmade tape.
I searched the internet for ideas and found a lot flowers, banners, flags, cards with strips of tape and wrapping things. I started by searching my tapes and was really surprised that i found more than 3 rolls.
I had no idea what to do at this time.....and started to prepare my workspace in the kitchen by using a non stick baking sheet and hold it down with tape (:o) My usual way to use tape*lol*
Still nothing in mind....i used Ranger Glue and Seal to adhere the tape to thicker cardstock as i would be sure it's really sticking.
A tape collage....what can i do .........???
Let's try one of my new couture templates from LaBlanche
Using tape to stick together to have a look first..
My first thought...very independent (:o)
Ok...i'll need some ebellishments, too
Cutting circles for flowers.....
....and wrapped tape around..
Her is the finished independent couture collage
Adhered the collage to silver painted corrugated cardbord. Strips of tape around. The saying is written on masking tape, adhered to washi tape.
Lot's of stickles on the dress
The black stripe is painted with acrylic paint.
Hope you had fun watching my process
Taped up ...a lot (:o)
