My New Photo Shooting Shoes!
Those of you who know me, know I love taking
pictures.....so when I saw this idea I just had to
make me a pair of....."go to photo shooting shoes!"
The day I saw this idea, I just couldn't resist!
So I ordered myself a pair of Van's slip on
tennis shoes, and as soon as they arrived....
I couldn't wait trying this out!
Kind of a bad picture.....a bit blurry, sorry.
My camera died so I had to use my cell
phone to take the pictures.
I used photo's of vintage camera's and flowers I found
on the internet. My favorite camera is the Brownie,
which is the very first camera I ever had given to me by
my father on my ninth birthday. Wish I still had it!
I did a decoupage technique using Liquitex with my camera
and flower print outs. Once dried, I sprayed them with
water, lightly rubbed off the paper, and then sealed them
with the Liquitex again. Then I scribbled flowers all
over the shoes with a permanent marker, and then hand
stamped the words "got camera" on the heels. I then went
over the letters with my permanent marker.
I TOTALLY loved the shoes I saw so I tried to make
mine as close to them as I could. If they had been
in a store, I would have bought them in a New York
minute! Or if the girl had been selling them...they are
right up my photography loving world!
Not perfect....but I just LOVE them!
You can bet next time you see me with my camera,
I'll be wearing my new shoes! :)
Now I'm making a camera bag to match!
My next pair are going to be "Going Junking" ....
I'm addicted lol!
How can you not just love them!
Thanks for stopping by!
Love, Hugs, and Blessings!
