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!
