I found this shoe template from Skip to My Lou to use to hold the nail polish. My buddy’s shoe displays won’t be decorated; I just used K&Company’s Brenda Walton Designer Paper, which is double-sided. Sarah wanted her shoes to have a solid color inside so the pattern wouldn’t interfere with the nail polish colors, so I used Michael’s Black Recollections cardstock.
Here are the two files you will need:
Witch Shoe Inside
I tried to make my own version of this template. I wanted a closed toe shoe so I added a front toe flap. I also added a flower cut out on the sides.
Anyway, hope you like them.
I have some faux stitching ideas for the shoes too, but I have to wait until I can get a hold of a pen tool holder that allow me to use my Ultra Fine Mini Sharpies. So far I have been using the pencil grips to hold the markers, but I haven't perfected that yet.
On my shoe, I used Color Box Fluid Chalk. This stuff is awesome when you need dimension. Depending on your project, you can get an old world look too. I use brown a lot on ripped edges to make pages look worn. I use the color chalk that coordinates with the paper for the shoe I decorated. When I use Black paper, I use a fluid chalk color based on the bling or other embellishments I will be using.
Anyway folks, happy craftin'. Chat with ya soon. :-)
