Gothic Chic Slipper

Many weeks ago, when I decided to join a bunch of swappers for a Vintage Halloween Ornament Swap, inspiration hit immediately. Usually my mind swirls with ideas and then goes completely blank. After a few different idea prototypes, which I loathe, I despair and have nightmares. The deadline looms, dark and dreadful, and suddenly, in a burst of energy, ala Edward Scissorhands, I frenetically
cut and paste and glitter... until...my little piece of swap magic is created. Sometimes I really like it, and sometimes I hate what I've made and wonder if I'll be allowed into any more swaps!!!


Not so this time! I knew right from the start. It had to be a bit dark,
a bit gothic and a bit Marie {as in Atoinette, of course!}
After a little searching for a shoe pattern,



I threw a couple of digital images together to form the sole of the shoe,
flocked and glittered them, glued on a little crepe paper and here it is:
the Gothic Chic Slipper. This is one I ended up really happy with.
My box of ornaments hasn't made it to Wisconsin yet.
But when it does, it will be a very Happy Halloween for me!
