Drab to Fab Shoe Conversion - Finnabair Creative Team

Hello Everyone,

I am so super excited to be sharing with you all my first project for the Finnabair Creative Team. 

Let's talk about shoes, who doesn't love shoes? combine craft and shoes and now we have a winning combination. It is no secret, I am a bargain hunter from way back. Constantly I gravitate towards the words 'clearance' and 'special'. It is not always a benefit to be tall with large feet, however when it comes to a clearance rack size 10's are often left needing a loving home.  Enter my new $5 pair of flats. 

These shoes were a blank canvas, asking for color and a bit of a spruce up, below you will see a before and after shot. 

As you can see in the below shot, Soft Gloss Gel will give your decoupaged shoes a beautiful lustre. 

Is anyone wondering whether or not these shoes will be ok if they get wet? to answer, yes they will be fine.  As Soft Gloss Gel is water based it will be permanent after drying and will resist water. However, yes there is a however. It is not recommended you go outside in torrential rain or go jumping in puddles (really for the same reason you would not put your varnished furniture outside). Decoupaged shoes should be cleansed with a wet cloth, certainly not washed. 

My YouTube tutorial will show you step by step how to create a pair of arty shoes yourself.

Would love to see you all give it a try. Please think twice before throwing out those old shoes, maybe they just need a little upcycling?

I wish you all a very happy and creative day.

Art Journal Page - Flying Unicorn

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing an art journal page with you all. Wow this was a fun one to make, I really got my hands in there, smudging and distressing. Eeek there really should be a photo of my hands here too, what an absolute mess, ink, paint glue. Oh well!!! I will never pretend to be a neat crafter, messy messy.
