I've sadly neglected my blog, never sure where to jump in again. So I'm sharing a pair of black leather wedge style sandals I revamped. I am very redundant in my shoe wear of late. I need to feel steady on my feet with my bad knee. Plus I find wedgies more comfortable...not the bum floss wedge of course, the wedge shoe. In person the shoes are shinier with the purple a denser shade.This is my way of putting the old me into my same old, same old shoes!
I first gessoed the shoes, then painted them with acrylic
paint. I let them dry overnight and put three coats of water
based varnish on them!
I sketched on the gessoed shoe with sharpy pen,
but deviated from the original plan as the painting progressed!
Now Happytiler has happy feet!
Ps....my toes go to the end when I'm standing.....just sayin!
Oh and my quilted summer jacket sort of matches too.....
Since we painted our living room gypsy pink, I have missed my fushia
walls, and find myself gravitating to that color to wear instead!
