fairy shoe


Did you have a great weekend? The WBC party is still on. There are lots of wonderful creative spaces to see and be inspired by. If you're here for WBC you can click on the button at the top of the right sidebar or scroll down to the previous post.

My shoe for the Fairy Shoe Swap at Bliss Angels is on it's way to my swap partner so I thought I would post the rest of the pictures.



I used a template from Artful Affirmations and made my shoe from pretty scrapbook paper. Then I cut out flowers from a paper napkin and collaged it on. I changed it a bit by curling the tip and turning it up slightly.



Embellished with a piece of vintage lace, a ruffle I made from old dress pattern paper, Prima paper flowers and a bit of paint, distress ink and glitter.



I imagined a fairy might have left this shoe in the woods after dancing the night away at a Midsummer ball.



This 1689 quote by John Selden was perfect for it.



I had lots of fun making my wee little shoe and I hope my swap partner Lorraine likes it too.



Thank you again to Wendy for another great fairy swap.

Oh Anna, you are amazing! Your fairy shoe is exactly what I would expect one to look like. I love all of the beautiful embellishments and the quote on the bottom. I believe you are a bit of a magical fairy yourself, sweet friend.

Yes, your partner Lorraine *LOVES* it!! Oh, Anna, what a lovely treat--from the outer package wrapping to the lovely card (in your beautiful handwriting) to the slipper wrapping to the actual slipper itself--every step ;) of the way!! Loved the quote on the bottom! I count myself very fortunate to have been your swap partner, thank you soooo much!
