Altered shoes/mixed media monday


well they are slip ons but were really past it and needed the bin, but I decided to alter them (inspired by my friend Linda :-) )and wear them when I do my craft demo...
texture paste, alcohol inks, moonshadow mists and embossing powders used.. (hope it doesn't rain lol)
I am showing them in mixed media monday as anyone who knows me will tell you .. i love texture paste alcohol ink and embossing powder all in one project.. canvases, 4x4s ATCs anything altered... and now Shoes! ...
They are very "me" .
