Match the shoes to the dress!!

I had an upcoming wedding of a friend and had a brilliant find of a awesome deep teal dress in a charity shop. Since I am skint (no money whatsoever) I had to find some shoes to match.. No luck..

Inspired by some great posts on here, I decided to match shoes to the dress. I had these plain white shoes that were a bit meh..



and with some acrylic paint (no fabric medium anywhere) and a make up sponge i had... some lace from my stash and viola:



I used some black Games Workshop acrylic to paint the bottom bit of the sole as the beige didnt fit. A few layers of matt acrylic finishe (also Games Workshop) and I was ready (the night before the wedding)

Those turned out really well. The lace is a great touch.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
