Altered shoes

I made these shoes for the Art Hive's Fall Fallies Fashion Show which is being held this Saturday night (Sept 27th). The one pair were modge podged with vintage pages from a Ragedy Ann & Andy and a vintage romance book. They were then embellished with silk flowers and vintage buttons from my grandmother's stash.

The other pair were inspired by this great mixed media artist at Eclectic Visions of an Altered Journey blog who did a pair of childrens shoes with this technique using carpenters liquid nails and a heat gun. After getting my desired texture I then painted it with a shimmery blue and green paint then rub and buffed it with gold. The embellishments are old earings and feathers I found at our local second hand store. They look like snakes to me.

Thanks for looking.
