I concur.  Were those images printed on acetate? 
Hey I just printed them on velum paper - First page got stuck in the printer so luckily I bought 2 pages. They kinda smeared when it came through the printer so I let the print out dry for 24 hours before I cut them out. I wanted to make a tiny movie screen each with an image of all my partners themes / I cut a small window on the other side so if you placed some light behind the house my hope was that it would illuminate the screen and you will be able to see the image Smiley

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Marauder's Map hand painted shoes on: October 19, 2015 06:55:14 AM
I had the great opportunity to swap with jillybeans for the Back to Hogwarts Swap round 5 this month. After some internet Pinterest stalking I discovered that she pinned a pair of painted Marauder's Map shoes to her Harry Potter board. I had never painted shoes before so this was my very first attempted at making them for her. I did some research on what type of paints to use and found that Angelus Acrylic Leather Paint works best being that it's waterproof and won't crack or peel.
I found few examples of other people's version of the Marauder's Map use as inspiration and here is what I came up with.

First I painted both shoes to look like aged scroll paper / then I drew the map design on with a pencil. Using at least 5 burgundy 05 ultra thin Micron pens I went over the lines paying close attention to the map details.

I painted the middle of the map with more paint and completed the words with white paint.


I had so much fun painting these for her Smiley

Hello all - Its my time to share my most AWESOME swap package from jellybeans! She is my new swap BFF - I love love love x3 everything she made for me and I am so excited to share:

First I opened the package with the best t-shirt in the world. Harry Pugger / she hand painted the pug image for me! After some internet stalking she found that I love pugs - this is so great!


Second
Dobby the house elf - awesome! Her daughter had a dance party with Dobby!


Next
A great and powerful quote from the wise Dumbledore


To honour the Slytherin in me. jellybeans made a cowl scarf on a loom which she used the seed stitch! - I love the colors - so perfect!


And lastly and a favorite / a beautiful Slytherin bracelet.


I just want to say thank you so much for all the hard work that went into making me all this wonderful Harry Potter gifts
I look forward to future Back to Hogwarts swaps Smiley
