Baby Steps

                                         




                                                   

 Here's a look at some baby shoes I altered. As you can see from the picture above, I started with old baby shoes that I picked up on one of my travels to Missouri. All the shoes came tucked down in a large square jar. There were a total of 10 shoes in all. There is nothing more exciting to me then to take a trip Antique Junking and score goodies like these adorable finds. Let me tell you it wasn't easy getting that jar of shoes squished into an already very full suitcase but I did it. If I had to leave clothing behind, those shoes were coming home with me. lol
I first started by painting them all with white gesso and then using a emery board to sand back off some of the gesso in places to make them look worn again. I then used glitter and spray to give them that little bit of Christmas sparkle. Filled them with greenery and small treasures.
Please visit my youtube channel to see more on these sweet baby shoes. Also find some of these cute Christmas treasures in my Artfire store.
Thank you, Laurie
