Boutique boots


BOOT MUSIC!!!!
I kinda think you need boot music my friends for this post!


Are you ready boots? start walking!


Whether you are painting tennis shoes or painting a pair of shoes, consider it as a fashion trend! It's all the rage to upcycle these days so why not give an old pair of boots a little winter flair. I mean, yes, I could throw out my boots because the heels were pretty much trashed and spend $$$ on a new pair but why when these just needed some stylish TLC. So off I went to Pinterest to get some ideas and I settled on these 2 for my inspiration.


I used Gwen's Decorative Six Petal Flower stencil to emulate the heel on the left.

To get the lines painted I used some old washi tape to guide me to for the stripe. And then stamped Rubbermoon's Mod Marks Dark - Rubber Art Stamp as an accent on the white stripe.

To jazz them up a bit I applied Mirror Gold embossing powder to create the small line. I laid a thin line of double stick tape along the white stripe and then covered the tape with the EP. I really love how the embossing worked out!

These boots are walking over to
Paint Party Friday
to see what everyone has been doing this past week!

I ADORE your boots! Wowie! So great. Fills my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

I also enjoyed the song by Nancy Sinatra. LOL The step they did at the beginning and the end is called "The Pony." LOL It was taught to my dance class in the late 1960's. LOL

Thanks for sharing that! :D
