…and wear cute shoes!

My second project for Imagine If Design Team is the boot, this comes in three pieces, the whole boot, the foot part and the heel.

I started out by covering all parts with white gesso, giving a good painting surface.  Then I chose a quote from the Fashion Quotes sheet and cut a window in the piece that is just the foot – this gave some more depth to my boot.

Second job was to paint the foot piece a pale green, and to paint the heel with stripes (I have a pair of shoes with striped heels and I love them!).  Once the paint was dry I stamped a background vine stamp over the boot with green ink, then to add texture I mixed a small amount of green paint into some texture paste then used a stencil randomly over the boot.

Once this was all dry, I glued the quote behind the window, and the two pieces onto the whole boot piece.

Last was the butterflies, I also painted them first with gesso then with different coloured paints.  Once they were dry I stamped a script stamp over them, and bent the wings up slightly and glued only in the centre.  The bodies of the butterflies are small pale green pearls.
