Glitter on my sneakers

Last night I painted the sneakers and it was a surprise to see them this morning. 
Normally I use Dala Sun paint on the sneakers, but I wanted this colour 
and couldn't figure out how to mix it. So I used Acrylic paint.
 Dala Sun paint is very fluid and the canvas of your sneakers doesn't
become hard or stiff when it is dry. 

I used the excess paint to stain the laces.
They have a very distressed look to them.
Now I need to do the bling!! 

I like the colour and the glitter. 
Shiny but not to shiny.

Cotton Canvas Sneaker Trouble.

Glitter, the trouble is glitter!
You need sparkle in your life and you need to
 leave a little sparkle where ever you go!

So the next thing is glitter for my tekkies.
I am still figuring it out how to get the glitter to stick to the tekkies
so that my you won't be able to follow my glitter trail all the way home.

Fabric medium or Gel medium will surely do it.
I hope to get them done before next week.
Will keep you posted !

French Blue

Any one that knows me, knows that I love blue.
Quite a while ago I made three cushion covers, but I still need two more
and I had to use blue. Blue Stencil paint and blue lace This colour was the closest to 
Woad and to me Woad is the perfect colour blue.


I could really sit and do this for hours, I just need someone to bring me 
some coffee once in a while! 

 I added a little bit of silver on the crown.
Then I took another design and did it in red. 

This is all the same colour red. Just add more or less paint.
 I will cut these two designs smaller and stitch them onto the bigger covers. 

Then I will add some ribbon and lace.

OK, now for the confession.... they are still under construction
and when they are done I will post the pictures.

What I have done in the meanwhile.... baked some Ginger biscuits,
some Soetkoekies and Lebkuchen. 
Completed the last card class for the year and wrote two 
articles and completed the two projects for magazines
 that are to be published in 2014.
That is why there were no blog posts.
Sorry guys!
