Dancing Shoes Mixed-media Stitch

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

I created these shoes as part of a Contemporary Craft Collection I am starting.  They go with my "Dance Dress".  I started with a pair of shoes from the Dollar Store that I found to be quite comfortable and danceable!  I embellished them by hand-stitching vintage buttons, a watch face, paper beads, sequins and all manner of other found objects.  Using white acrylic paint, I applied a light "wash" over the canvas of the shoes and some of the pieces so that it would better match the Dance Dress.  The inside of the shoes have been lined with paper from a vintage hymn book.  Although these shoes and the pieces in this collection may be worn, they are primarily created to be viewed and to tell a story.  It is my intention to push Mixed-media Stitch beyond its limits with new and beautiful applications that combine all the artistic skills I love!
