flash back friday 3

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.

Happy Crafting
