This weekend I finished my second pair of mixed media shoes. These pumps were a beta test and they are not meant to be worn, they are meant to be either simply decorative or perhaps to hold things - I see pencils, paintbrushes, pennies, or other assorted items in their future.
This wasn't my first pair of mixed media shoes. My first pair are Emily Dickinson canvas basketball style sneakers. They have poetry along the toes and the side. They can't be worn in the rain, but I wear them regularly. They are swoon worthy for the right people.
I will be posting a DIY post sometime this week, showing the process I went through for the pumps. I've had requests to create a wearable version. My Emma and her friends are lucky because they can be my test shoe wearers. I'm not sure if they'll wear them in such a rural Bakersfield setting, but I couldn't resist taking the shoes out in one of my favorite spots at the Panorama Vista Preserve yesterday.
What would you like to see me try next with mixed media shoes?
