I love the mixture of collage images! Especially the pac man, and map!

I also really love the shape of the shoes themselves, do you mind telling me where you got them from? Smiley

Fantactular! May I ask, how did you seal them?
I would love to make something like that, but would be afraid I would do all that work and then if they got wet they would be ruined!!

oooo thanks again everybody!!!!! it´s so cool to read your comments. Na0mi i used an acrilic matt varnish to seal them, actually you can´t tell by the pics but they have 10 layers of varnish!!! yes it was the worst part of the process, but now they are really strong. vw69 yes i worn them! people doesn´t believe i made them, i´m so happy with them. First time paper broke in 2 places, i just superglue them and never broke again. gracemusante the process is very easy, i´d like you try it: take some white glue ( i don´t know if it´s the name of this kind of glue, you know the one you would use for wood) add a bit of water and wet with it the shoe and the paper. Make your collage, let it dry ( wich is really quickly) and seal them. I used matt varnish cause i like the paper texture, but i think a glossy one can make them look really good too. Hope this helps!!!
