May Art Draw - Belle of the Ball

As regular readers may know I have reported on two crafty catastrophes in the last few days - firstly, the intended item for the May Art Draw has inexplicably disappeared following a bout of tidying up. Now there's a lesson if ever there was one.

Secondly, the proforma shoe made in advance of my Steampunk Cinderella  project got squashed because I put a box on top of it. Accidentally of course. But all is not lost.

I am pleased to report that I have managed to rescue the squashed item and together with a couple of other rather fanciful additions it is now my offering for the May Art Draw. I have repaired the heel and altered the original design which was from a template from House of Zandra by adding a back to the shoe and lining it throughout (helped with the squashed bits lol).

Here they are in all their glory.

There is the reconditioned shoe (it really is fine!!), a fan, a little dance card and well, you might as well have the other flower. I'm thinking that some rather elegant young lady might be getting all prepared for a night of dancing and fun.  I suppose she won't get far with just one shoe (although Cinderella did OK in the end) but I didn't have enough paper (or patience) for two. The colour is a little questionable but the DCWV paper is sooo pretty and being ready glittered added a lot of bling with very little effort. The fan is made from scraps of leftover papers and I confess is not perfect. It also lacks the satisfying 'snap' of other fans I have made (also here) and is all form with no function, but I can only hope you'll forgive me this little piece of whimsy.

If you would like to have these for your very own (!!!) all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 9.00 pm on Friday 31st May and I will put you in the draw. Overseas players are welcome and please feel free to link from your own blogs (if you let me know you have done so I will put you in the draw twice).

I hope you like this project, the Cinderella shoe was so well received I thought it might strike a chord. Now all I have to do is find the other project and we'll be all set for June!!

Hi Cindy
wow this shoe and fan are so very pretty the paper you have used is wonderful.
I have this shoe template and have only used it once as I found it a bit fiddly.
You have done a great job with it, PRETTY

Love this, Cindy. I don't think the colour is quetionable - the use of gold with the pink stops it being too pinky-pink if you know what I mean - and it's glamorous and fairy tale! I love your shoes - most unusual projects!

Ohh yummy, gimme, gimme!

I love your lesson about not tidying up. I don't need to learn that one though, lol, you should see my credroom (craft/bedroom) it's a wonder I can get into bed most nights.

Very lovely! I am changing out my picture in my sidebar from last month's draw to this one. I can't believe this was squashed. It looks great. I love the flowers.
