Time for the pink team over at Eclectic Ellapu this week and I have chosen the theme of Anything goes... everyone's favourite.
For this challenge I bought a cheap and nasty clay wellie boot from a pound shop in town. Yes it cost me a whole quid and I think I was robbed lol.
See told you I was lol. Anyway I smothered it in modelling paste to disquise the snail and butterflies, I pressed white lace into the paste. I then dropped the boot and it broke in half. Out came the glue gun and more paste and lace. See you cannot tell. (well I hope not)
I painted the entire boot using a metallic burgundy paint and dry brushed it with back acrylic. This defined the pattern in the lace.
I found an old bracelet at a car boot sale and used the links for the bootlace eyelets.
I think they worked really well. Looked better with coat of paint and a little rub n buff.
I used a piece of an old table cloth painted black for the background of the eyelets. I glued them in place and then wound black sheer ribbon around the bracelet links and small brass flowers with black acrylic beads in the centres.
I used the same ribbon for the bow at the top - quite difficult to see though. I used an old doily over some wadding and painted it all black. When dried I pushed it inside the boot and now I have my very own stickpin holder. I don't think the pins in there at the moment suit the boot lol. Ho hum never mind!
Well I hope you have enjoyed this post and why not head on over to Eclectic Ellapu for this weeks fun challenge
