Since the 2 big kids have been back at school (three days last week) I have a little bit more time to think, to have thoughts of my own. More ideas for projects have been coming into my head now, after a month or two of struggling.
Today's inspiration comes from this stunning pair of boots by Michal Negrin. Seen here on polyvore. Brought to my attention by PenelopeHangerRefashions facebook page. They are simply stunning, but at $800 a pair, the likelihood of me ever owning a pair is reduced to a zero.
I purchased these comfortable but boring and plain shoes from an op shop about 4 months ago for $3, with the idea of a decoupage project, but no idea what to use to decorate them. Awesome! Now I had an idea. OK so they're not boots, but we are in the middle of the hottest summer on record where I live, so boots are not really a happening thing right now.
I printed and cut out some pretty pages I found using google images.
Glue. I put masking tape on the rubber around the sole first to minimise glue drops where they weren't wanted.
They went outside to see what a gorgeous day it is today.
