A Christmas Shoe

 

 

 

I had a blue suede just begging to be an Elvis shoe; when I saw these blue accented snowflakes and thought Oh Holy Christmas, Batman!

I didn’t want to cover the whole shoe as the suede is just beautiful! So I experimented with spot application. I was hoping that I could make the shapes flow and I think it came out beautifully!

Since I was playing with new elements…
I decided to play with some glitter! I stayed with the color scheme of the stickers and wrote it out!

I think they turned out nice! They’re on display at Dragon’s Lair Comics and Fantasy Austin; go check them out!

Happy Halloween Y’all!

Whether you celebrate Halloween, Samhain, All Hallows, or Dios de los Muertos; you’re gonna love the seasonal shoes I played with!

Feast your eyes on this candy!    IMG_1300[1]

I used some really great craft paper from Michael’s. To make the heel really POP I made an “art journal” style pumpkin. I have to say I like how it turned out….IMG_1301[1]

For the sides I experimented with vellum and stickers! The vellum laid on so darn nicely that I wish all paper was vellum! The spiderweb look of it turned out to be perfect for the Halloween theme!

The stickers were great! (From Walmart) They added some excellent texture and some of the edges (rat feet) wouldn’t lay down all the way so they give the shoe even more dimension.

I hope you love these as much as I do! If you want to touch them or look at them in person; they are on display at Dragon’s Lair Comics and Fantasy Austin!

Updates

I apologize for being gone so long! I have been working on two shoes… Star Wars and Dr. Who!

I have also been getting ready for the upcoming Holiday season. Yeah, I know; I don’t want to think about it either.

While I prep my Star Wars and Whovian Intros keep this in mind:

Halloween orders need to be in by October 10th to guarantee you Trick o’ Treat in style! Some comics you might want to put on your shoes (other than traditional monsters) include American Vampire, The Walking Dead, 30 Days of Night, Crossed, Locke & Key, or many others!

And we have a deadline for Christmas order too! December 5th is your last chance to get the perfect gift for yourself or your friends!

Shoot me an email shoesalaart@gmail.com and we’ll get your Holidays off to an art-tastic beginning!
