1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Archie Comic Shoes! on: August 28, 2011 10:01:32 PM
These are my new shoes!  I absolutely adore them Smiley 

I bought some old Archie comics at the library, along with some Batman comics (so expect Batman shoes soon!) and I figured I would have fun making Archie shoes.  So, a lot of Modge Podge and almost six episodes of F.r.i.e.n.d.s. later...

I spent a lot of time picking panels that were bright and/or funny. 

Thanks for looking!

I love these, especially the Batman necklace! My brother is insanely into Lego, so I have stolen a couple basic pieces for crafting supplies.  Great inspiration Smiley

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!  Since the first day I stumbled over this site, I loved the friendly people on Craftster! 

I used acrylic paints and after it was dry, I coated the shoes with clear acrylic spray paint.  It's worked so far, but the I've worn my shoes for less then a year.  Smiley
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Under The Sea Shoes on: June 07, 2011 10:40:10 PM
This is my first post here on Craftster.  I have been lurking for over a year now, and I have finally gotten around to sharing my own creations.  Just to tell you a bit about myself, I am a teenager living in Saskatchewan, Canada.  I come from a relatively creative family, my siblings and I are all into arts/music/baking, etc.  I love paper crafting, sewing, painting shirts/clothing, polymer clay and drawing, and I also love seeing other people's crafts.  
I haven't been painting shoes for very long, these are only the third pair.  The other two had a more realistic approach, so I decided to do something a little different and go for the cartoon style.  And "Under the Sea" shoes were born!  

(By the way, I have no idea if I'm posting the images correctly, so please tell me if I'm not so I can correct it)

^The shoes were about $7.00.  

^I painted the background first.  Trying to paint an underwater background was something I've never done before.  Smiley

^So, this is what both shoes looked like after two hours of painting.  

^I painted the details, and then outlined them with my black fabric marker.  

^Sorry for the blurriness.  The painted patch on the heel says "P Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney"  And yes, it is a scuba diving pig.  

Thanks for looking Smiley

I love it!  Such a great idea! 

How strong are the "knobs"?  Can you stack more books on the Lego book?
