Last year, I picked up a holiday magazine that had several Halloween projects in it, and I loved one in particular, which was altering pumps to create witches shoes. I dog eared the page, and put the magazine somewhere. SOMEWHERE is no where to be found now. Soooo, I played around with the way I thought these should go using a lot of goods from the Ranger arsenal, and I loved the result. While trying to decide on my decor for the shoes, I thought I'd google 'witches shoes' and came up with a ton of results on pinterest. I mean a ton! So much for trying to be original, but I hope you like my take! These could be used for candy, plants, cookies, and whatever else you'd like to put on a tray for Halloween. I think any holiday or special event would work for these too!
|I used to go into an office and work, and had to dress the part. Now, I work at home, so it's flip flops and yoga pants for me, so I'll just alter what I don't use anymore! BAHAHAHAHAHA! These shoes were perfect to alter. Lots of foil,Grunge paper dies, masking tape, and phone book paper went onto these. It was soooooooooooo much fun! Making pinatas would be a great job for me! AND...before you ask...they took me almost a week and a half to make, but oh so worth it!|
|Painting, glittering, and decorating them were so much fun! I loved using Tim's Colored Crackle technique on them as well...it was icing on this cake...not to mention lots of Distress Glitter!!!|
|Phone book paper is the greatest substrate...who knew?!! It took Distress Paint and Archival Ink so well! Lots of Stamper's Anonymous images were used in the making of the tray!|
|The Sizzix Cobwebs die really helped set the spooky tone on the tray.|
|They made my coffee table come to life, and notice there is no candy in them....nom nom nom!|
Isn't this challenge perfect for your Halloween Art? I hope you join in on all the fun! Enjoy this week's candy!!!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
