Want to win a $25 gift certificate to the ColourArte store?


Altered-shoes-by-Yvonne-Yam-for-ColourArte

So friends, ONE of you will have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the ColourArte store....


Because today is the day for the ColourArte Altered Shoe Blog Hop!:)


I started with this pair of comfy wedges (my mum's old shoes) which has seen better days.


I adhered old lace fabric to the shoe with matte medium.


Next, I painted it with a coat or 2 of gesso to prep the surface for painting.


Then I painted the whole shoe with ColourArte Radiant Gel in Spiced Pumpkin.


Once that was dry, I went in with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Solar Gold on the raised surfaces. This really showcased the lace design.

The last step is to embellish! I used gold buttons!
I didn't want to add too much bulk to the front so I used an old bottle cap and added Golden Gold Mica Flakes.

Before and After

To be in the running for the $25 gift certificate to the ColourArte store, leave a comment here and on the ColourArte blog by 5 August 2015 12am EST. I will announce the winner here on August 7.

To increase your chances of winning, you can leave a comment on each of the blogs participating in the blog hop.
