Fabulous You!

Good Morning!

Welcome to the 2nd of my shoe themed creations made with products from The Robin's Nest®.
This piece of wall art was very easy to put together. Let me show you how!

First I found a template of a shoe that I wanted to use. The template I chose was originally used for quilting. I tweaked it a little to adapt it for this paper project.

Don't be afraid to look around a little and think outside the box when creating your project.You might be surprised at what you can find to use.

Cut out the pieces of the shoe template. Now is the time you can play around and decide what paper to use for each section.  You can use paper for the bow, something else, or nothing at all. I played around quite a bit before coming up with my final decision. When you are happy with your choices, trace onto the paper and cut out. Now you are ready to glue your shoe together.

The next step is to cut out three pieces of paper, one to put the shoe on and the other two to accent the background.  I used two types of corner punches. The first punch rounded the corners of the sheet with the shoe, the other created a decorative corner that I could slip in the black border paper.

I took a pretty piece of decorative wood, painted it black with a bubblegum pink border. I stapled 2 pieces of pink ribbon to the back and tied it in a bow at the top to create the frame hanger.

I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. I studied graphic design in Portland,Oregon before moving to Denton, Texas and putting all my focus on mixed media art. In addition to being on The Robin's Nest Design Team, I am an article writer for mixed media art, on the Creative Paperclay Design team, and a blogger for DecoArt. I strongly believe in giving back. I volunteer at Scrap Denton Creative Reuse Center where I teach workshops, art camps, and perform art demos. I am very passionate about mixed media art and helping others discover their creativity.
