oooh this is a hard one. At the moment i have 47 pair of shoes,boots,trainers.. and I love them all. I mean you have noticed the 'Sole' part of my blog name right? occasionally I get brutal and donate a few to charity, however the ulterior motive there is that I can then buy new ones. I don't think I have ever gone over 50 pairs.. but never say never.
It was so hard to choose, but as this is an 'art' journal, I decided to go with these Art shoes.. I bought these over 10 years ago, so they are pretty scruffy now, but I wear them every summer.
Here is the page for them. I started with this bavkground which had been painted at the same time as the planner page opposite. It is just rough paint and a little stencilling. At the bottom I added one of the painted stickers that I made. It wasn't planned, but turned out perfect, as the sticker has the word art on it and they are 'Art shoes'
I added some torn book page, and then stamped a border with a homemade stamp.
I recently dug this old tin of stamps out of the cupboard, most of them are old. just roughly carved out of small erasers. They are a bit small really, which is why I don't use them, but I thought I would maybe start using them in my journal.
I printed out my shoe photo and cut them out, then glued them to the page with a few other bits and pieces.
I really like this page, it's bright and funky just like the shoes... or at least like they were when new lol
