Hello!

I used to have an account here, but I never used it, and wanted a fresher one, as my crafting has changed quite a bit over the years (in a good way I think hope).

Anyway, this is my first project I am posting with my new alias, and I hope you all love it as much as I do!

(Hooray I can post pics now!)

I had some old pink suede heels that I bought really cheap at uni, but hadn't worn in ages. I decided to paint them and stud them so they were a bit more exciting!

Here's how they turned out:



And this is how they used to be:


I love them so much, and am so excited to wear them in a few weeks to a biker themed wedding!

Let me know what you think Smiley

Those look incredible! Totally like designer kicks, I swear I have seen some just like this. And love the ever-so sexy red underneath, I've been dying to do that to a pair of my heels.

Those look great! It looks like they were always meant to be that color and have those studs. What kind of paint/sealers/etc did you use? It looks like the suede still has an interesting texture and I like how shiney the heel area is.

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.

I would love a pair of shoes like this, wear did you buy the spikes? Are they glued on?

I love this! Not that I have a problem with pink suede... but the final result is very attractive to me!
