MIss Tiny Feet

We went on a shopping trip with our beautiful granddaughter, I know now I sound like a Nana, but hey I am one.    We surprised her with these beautiful shoes.  The store here in town had not even put them out on display yet.   We were hunting around the store like a couple of raccoons,  digging and looking everywhere hunting for a treasure.   I have been painting some shoes and she said Nana I don't have any cute shoes.  Well little Princess I think you forgot about these. 

I did the method of paper painting, just love this way of painting and found some rice paper to play with it also.  The paper was hiding in a cardboard tube and I released it to the world so now it can proudly be of good use.  So painted the paper and just had fun.  I added a few notes to her in the painting and a couple of hidden images in the painting also.  

Now these shoes had studs all over them and I thought how in the world am I going to get this effect.  I did buy some liquid silver leaf but that just did fit the ticket.  So I dug around in my scrapbook supplies and lo and behold there were these cute little hole punchers.   I am talking tiny little holes.  Found some of my grey painted paper and just punched to my little hearts content.  It was kind of relaxing as this whole method is.  I then sprinkled some of them on the painting. Some landed grey and some white but I think it worked---Sparkles or as granddaughter use to call them when little "Lights".    Granddaughter after my heart there, you can never have to many "lights"

So here they are.  I have done a few more tweaks with it since I took this photo of them but can't you see her prancing around in them?   I put a glossy black frame on them and she will be getting them soon.

She has tiny feet and such a wonderful personality.

Well, that is what is going on in my world at the moment.   Did clean the front windows after our last sand storm but don't think that is why you came to see what is going on in my world.
Thanks for stopping by.
