shoe

The prompt for day 46 in embrace your art 365 was turquoise, pink and gold; day 47 favorite color (mine is turquoise) and day 48 is pink, so I combined all 3 in 1 piece. Okay, I know that is not the spirit of the challenge, but creating something every single day is just not feasible/possible for me. I also will be linking to the weeklyCraft Barn challenge, where we need to create something with the theme shoes this week.

I started by gluing 3 hearts out of my scrapbox as a base


Stamped on top with a floral motive and burgundy stazon ink.


Painted over it with gold.


And then came out my gelli plate, somewhat under the dust because it’s been a while since I used it. But last week I bought this amazing mat for doing the dishes which has just the most amazing pattern, just perfect for monoprinting. (and probably also for stamping, spraying)


I used my favorite color turquoise on the plate, added the fab pattern and printed it over the already gorgeous layers. I love how it created a halo around the hearts.


Last but not least I stencilled a pink sandal through a homemade stencil (this one was quite tricky to make due to the fine details) and added a flower strass on the strap.
Typed the quote: keep your head, heels and standards high.



Thx for stopping bye and have a nice day.

  1. Love the quote, by the way the shoe looks amazing as a faded background one and a vivid one in the foreground, nice composition Vicky!

  7. Superb! Totally superb. And you are quite right to combine themes where you can if you can't create something more often, it's the sensible thing to do. You get the enjoyment of creating, the satisfaction of keeping up with your chosen challenge, and we all still get the pleasure of seeing your awesome creations ((hugs)) :o))
