Shabby chic lace shoes makeover

Hi everyone :-)

Got some beautiful laces from my friend Linda at Livartnow and decided to alter some old shoes I did not use any more. So happy how they turned out and will have them for decor in my garden room :-)

The shoes where black and I painted them first with white gesso and then 3 times with white paint.
Then used Claudine Hellmuth multi matte to glue on some thin curtain lace over the whole shoe. Ohh my then they turned out blue after a while.... Did not think about that the multi matte would react with the paint so had to paint all over again with white paint. Then it looked great and the lace structure still shows up :-)

Also used some laces from Annie and here is the link to her beautiful Etsy lace shop,

Side of the shoe. Used a lot of different laces and cut them apart. Layered on top of each other and had so much fun playing with all the wonderful laces I got :-)

On the backside I used an applique with pearl dangle that I got from Linda and she bought it at Pavipavia on Etsy.
Here is the link to her shop,https://www.etsy.com/shop/paviapavia


Used a Chinese braided trim around the shoe and this is really good to work with. Also from Annies Etsy shop. Then glued 4 mm flat back pearl trim on top.

Left it open on the front to look like shoelace opening.
Also used a applique on the front and I cut of 2 of the pearl dangle and glued them on the side.
Pearl on the butterfy is from One Little Dreamer and here is the link to her shop,

Butterfy is from WOC and here is the link to they`r shop,

So fun playing with laces and cut them apart :-)

Tim Holtz Grunge Book Lamp

Hi everyone :-)
Made this working lamp for my fathers 80 year birthday and had so fun making it out of chipboard and papers.
My father love cars and have been working with motor all his life so I tried to make it a bit masculine car theme.
Used papers, accessories. and dies from Tim Holtz  and had so fun making it grunge and a bit old looking.
Here is a picture of the finish lamp with the accessories. to go in the drawer and book box on the side.


Video




 There is a working clock in the middle And have the rain man and some gears for decoration. The clock can be taken out to change the battery.  Made a steering wheel out of  gear die and just cut out so it became a wheel. Used stickers and spelled out 1966 CA Cobra steering wheel  can be taken off and then the Cobra spell will show. Same car inside the shelf That my father used to have.

Drawer decorated with map paper .

Inside the drawer is a clip board, book mark and envelope.

Seen from the side. The lamp shade is made out of 4 - 12 x 7 papers and scored every 3/4 inch .Folded back and forth.Made holes and threaded the chain through about 3/4 inch from the top.

 In the left book I made sort of a shadow / configuration box.

Inside the book there is a picture of my father in his first car :-)
Also have film strip, clock key,wheel,nuts. skews, and washers. The chain is puched out with a EK success punch.


On the backside I have some gears. Clock key cit out of chipboard 4 times to make it thick and key holes for decor.

 Right side.

Used desk top die and layered the bottle 8 times. Cut out the inside part so the pencil with the feather fit inside.

Painet the pencil black and glued on the feather.

Inside there is place for the journal and on the side of the book there is a clop for notes and a pocket made out of gears.

Picture of my father inside the book box.


Here you can see the Cobra car. It was original blue and white but it did not fit the colors on the lamp so I painted it lol.

Hope my father will like  this lamp I made for him :-)

Also made an other Tim Holtz inspired lamp and here is the link to the video,
