21  there's no place like home...if i lived with Prince in Shoes: Completed Projects by Avril222 on: May 27, 2006 04:18:45 AM
so, i entered the craft challenge #10, footwear facelift as my first post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88306.0 and i realized how amazing it was to revamp some ugly shoes. but they were a bit labor intensive so i wanted to do another pair of shoes minus the work. i perused craftster and saw these beauties http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53898.0 and thought...purple glitter.
my favorite pair of purple leather pumps had taken a turn for the worse from one too many late nights so...
i went to the craft store, grabbed purple glitter, super 77 adhesive (bad idea... i had glitter on my hands for days), and ran home...
without further ado

and closeup

so yeah i put on 1 coat tacky glue, then glitter, then tacky glue, then glitter, then tacky glue, spray latex or silicone, 3 days drying time and voila
i wore them out and people loved them!

what do you think?

22  beaded shoe springtacular in CHALLENGE 10 ENTRIES by Avril222 on: April 04, 2006 07:24:08 PM
hi, i took a pair of black heels that looked like these:

4 different colors of bugle beads, some serious tacky glue, snipping of the ankle strap, and a little sculpey clay (and some seed beads and clip on earring backs so that the flowers can be removed...) for the flowers later and voila:

this is my first post and first crafster project ever! so what do you think?
