High Heel Crush


Hello everyone! I hope you are all having an amazing weekend! I have had a rather lazy one organizing my art reference journal and getting a little art journaling in there too! You know it doesn't seem to matter how many days are in my weekend it always goes by way too fast! I can't believe it is almost September! Kids are back to school next Thursday... I am very glad for it as they are seriously getting on each other's nerves. Too much time together this summer! I don't know if girls are any different but my boys have had enough! This year they will be going to different schools as my oldest is going to HIGHSCHOOL! I still remember my first day of grade 10! How can my son be in grade 10 already????? YIKES! I am starting to get the 'empty nest' vibes beginning to chime deep down in my stomache ~ we only have 5 more years of grade school until both our boys are going to University/College! That went by really fast!
Anywho... I spent the day art journaling. I went through some magazines I had just purchased and found some BEAUTIFUL high heels ("insert drool here"!) so I thought I would use them on a journal page. I can't wear these gorgeous beauties so I might as well make some beautiful art work out of them right? I must admit that I totally have a CRUSH on high heel shoes! They make me happy! I was so sad when I finally broke down and came to the realization that I simply could not wear them anymore... very sad, sad, sad day! Can you see my upside down smile??? So now I admire them from afar and dream of the days ago when I would elegantly glide down the sidewalks in my 4" kitten shoes (ya right!!!!) Truth be known I have always been clumsy and I don't think I have ever "NOT" twisted my ankles wearing high heel shoes and there is "NO" possible way that I could ever get away with wearing 4" heels! That just wouldn't happen in my world!!! But I will always adore them and drool over the exquisite designs - THEY ARE TOO DARN CUTE NOT TO LOVE!!!!!
So... with that said, I hope you enjoy my "HIGH HEEL LOVIN" page!
I strung some beads with wire on top of this page and cut out a scallopped edge along the right side where I was able to zentangle in the scallops. This page is full of "juicy" techniques that I am had so much fun creating!
Let me know which shoe you love! My favorites are the one's in the middle, they tell a story of a tall slender business woman who keeps these shoes in her office "just in case" an invitation comes her way for a romantic night on the town don't ya think????
Happy Creating Everyone!

I know what you mean about loving high heels but I no longer wear them either. Now I just go for comfort!

You touched a nerve with me on the high heeled shoes. First of all, I do love the journal page you created "in memory" of them. I understand how saddened you are in not being able to wear them anymore. But, at least you could wear them at one time and had fun with them. In my case, I'm 6' tall and whenever I'd wear anything over a 2 inch heel, well, you guessed it-I towered over everyone, especially the boys I'd go out with. So..rejoice that at least you could wear them!
PS: I envied my shorter friends when I'd see them sport some wild beautiful boots like in your journal.

They do grow way too fast! Love your art page! Very pretty! I shot a wedding last night and you would have loved the shoes. My DIL and I were commenting on all of them. I told her I should be taking pictures of everyone's shoes because my youngest daughter would go Ga Ga! She too is a shoe freak!

Melissa said...

Wow, what a gorgeous picture. I love all of the details you attended to!

This page is magnificent!! I have to agree with you about shoes, I love heels and funky cool or elegant shoes but the truth is I am all about comfort! I can't help it but flip flops and clogs and often just bare feet is the way I tend to go. I will occasionally put on a pair of heels but I'm not comfy in them. Great page, I love it!!

I've never been able to wear high heels. There are some amazing ones out there and I love what you did with them. Great Page.

Carolyn said...

I must admit that I love high heels and totally crush on them but I think your crush is much more easier on your cash than mine. I am not a creative person so I cannot create these beautiful pages like you do so to fill the void in my life I have to buy new shoes. My husband does not love that part of me.

Wonderful page! I'm still in denial about high heels - I ADORE them but every time I wear them my back is in agony for the next week:0( but I still keep on wearing them babies! And i would definitely choose the upside down shoe with lace detailing and ridiculously high and slender heel, I'm drooling can't you tell? Lovin' your blog, x

Deb said...

My "sole sister"! I love love love the high heels. And I'm still in denial about wearing them. I just don't wear them often, or for very long. But they are beautiful to admire. Love the journal page.

I do not understand the allure of high heels. They destroy your body and your feet. Everyone seems to love them so I am out of tune with the pack but really, I just don't get why women continue to torture themselves. I thought women's lib back in the 70's was going to rid us of these forever. Ah well, everyone sees life differently and you did make a super page with them.
