Monday Makes

Back to normal blogging hopefully, feeling more positive than the past few months; no idea why, nothing's changed, but let's go with the flow! So, Monday makes ..........

I mentioned to Ashton I was going to decorate a pair of shoes for the 'do' as it's probably the only way I'm going to get a pretty pair that fits. She said she'd love a glittery red pair. So I thought I'd have a go, got all the bits including a cheap five pound pair of shoes.TBH they're not brilliant, but they were my first attempt, and I am chuffed with the end result:)
Before ......
....... and after :)
Created this for a client :) It's much sparklier IRL
And did this for Joshua's 21st birthday :)

    1. Hi Suzanne, thanks! And it was lovely - if a little scarey to know that I now only have 2 children under 20! xx

    1. Hi JoJo - the silver gems are attached with something called Gemtak, and once they're on, they're not going anywhere! With the glitter a couple of the layers are Mod Podge and glitter mixed and then after a layer of just glitter is dry you hairspray it! xx

    1. Thanks! I usually love wearing heels, being just 5'1" they help! But while my foot's healing I can't, so I just have to look at them :) xx

  5. Wow! I think the red, glittery shoes are amazing! If I had done it my shoes would end up with glue clumps all over and glitter on my fingers and hair.
