Shoes

Hi Everyone!
It is very wet and windy here, a good time to stay indoors and work on art projects!
I have had a busy couple of weeks, so didn't have chance to do a tag last week. Your "Tattered and Torn" tags were really inspiring.

I have gone vintage for  my shoe tag, as I remembered these wonderful images from The Graphics Fairy  and had been wanting to use them for ages! They are from an old Wanamaker's catalogue, but I don't know the date. I have collaged them onto a lace background. This was made by doing a lace rubbing with a coloured pencil. I trimmed it with lace and buttons and photographed it on a patchwork quilt to add to the vintage feel.  Off to look at your tags now!
