Spots before your Eyes.

With 'The Wedding' coming up in the family got to start thinking about hats, bags and shoes as well as an outfit to wear. So I thought I would start at the bottom and work my way up by designing some shoes first!

The heel is made from a ball bottle top and a piece of garden cane stuck into the top using air dry clay and then painting with matt black artists paint. The sole is from cardboard covered with paper from Funky Hands 'Paper Blossom ' range pattern stripesNo 20. and Basket Weave No 9.

The uper is made using the Spots No 4 from the same range and glued double thickness.

A stripe tab and button finish the look. Hows that for a spring shoe.

And remember as with Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik and Prada if the correct design label is not in the shoe its probably a 'Fake'!!!

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Get Funky: Spots and Stripes.

Creative Belli: Letter S. Spots/stripes/swirls/stars etc.

The Crazy challenge: Anything goes.
