These shoes were made for
walking and painting...of course!
My friend Terry and I ordered these croc style shoes from a nursing website - they are comfortable! We wanted to get them in various colors and paint them before we go to the painting convention in June together.
Here is what I painted ~ beach scene on the Navy,
Butterfly bush and butterfly on the Black, and Hibiscus on the Pink. They all came out really cute I think. Terry painted wild flowers, sunflowers and purple daisy like flowers.
Now for the bad news....
I wore the butterfly bush pair last night to my sons soccer practice and well the paint started peeling off ~ YIKES. It was almost like a decal ~ the butterfly came off, all intacked but OFF. We used outdoor paint thinking that since you could paint on items that would be outside and has a built in sealer that would work best - we were wrong. Now, might think about painting them with regular acrylic and sealing or purchasing some plastic paint.
Remember the hydranges I got in the floral arrangement last week - well, I took them out and dried them and they look gorgeous in my olive jar don't you think? I sprayed them with a clear lacquer.
Busy painting week - two classes tomorrow
Peaches and Grapes.
Looking forward to a visit with my dad as well who flies in today from Germany. Mom follows in a couple of weeks.
Have a blessed weekend. Happy CREATING!
