Yey, 1st craft challenge Grin
 
I did this collage of some of my favourite Nikes.
It is life-size and has been entirely cut to scale from it's original. I used four different types of paper in varying colours and pierced the pieces with a pin to create the stitching before sticking it all together.

I hope you like!!

I am amazed at how realistic that looks, especially compared to the shoe.  Wow!
