New shoes!

This is the other thing that distracted me today! I was having a little stroll through my bloglines and went to see what Elizabeth had been doing. This!! Wow! I couldn't resist. I have a lovely comfy pair of shoes that have seen better days and that I keep for the garden and the studio so I had nothing to lose.

No, they didn't come with black lines on, I forgot to photograph them before I started. Doh! and here is the finished article.........

Excuse the fluffy bit of sock! I've painted the shoes with Jacquard Lumiere Metallics and I will seal them with some beeswax as I don't have anything else.

Aren't they great! My DH has dared me to wear them when we go round to our friends later this evening - it's worth a bar of chocolate so what do you think?!? No brainer!

Fantastic!!! Now I wonder if I'd have the same results with acrylics, as I don't have the posh Jacquard Lumiere Metallics. I've got a great pair of those comfy clogs that nurses wear in ER, they'd be perfect :-)

These are wonderful, Julie! I read Elizabeth's post, too, and plan to jazz up an old pair of Birkenstocks I have. Great! Did you win your bet?
