Blue Shoes Tag from MICHELE STORMS Art From the Well 

HAZEL HARRIS My Crafty Outlook I printed and cut out two shoes from Lunagirl's Fancy Footwork digital
collage sheet mounting them on to a piece of paper with shoes (I've
had this ages, originally from a magazine freebie). The pleated card,
lace and flowers from my stash and the quote was generated on computer
and printed.

Freebie Footwear: Shoes/Boots

Here are a couple of free images to get you started in the SHOES challenge.

The first one is a Victorian-era die cut. These little scraps were made just for scrapbooks, which became popular with Victorian ladies and girls. Victorian scrapbooks are filled with pictures clipped from magazines and advertisements, and companies soon began to give away collectible trade cards with pretty or funny pictures on them. Eventually little die-cut scraps came along. I don't know what the deal is with boots or shoes with flowers in them, but our collection includes several so they must have been a popular theme!

The second image (below) is clipped from an antique trade card. I tend to think of it as a gentlemen's style, but with the heel I think it may be a lady's shoe as well ~ an everyday little boot, rather than a high boot or fancy slipper!

Right-click to enlarge and save and get busy creating, then link up your creation in our challenge! :-)
More shoes galore if you need them: VINTAGE SHOES

New Challenge: SHOES

Two-for-one double challenge! Lunagirl is sharing this challenge theme with Vicki Romaine's challenge blog,! Our Design Teams will be guest designers for each other's blogs... and you can link up your creation on BOTH sites for double chances to win!

The theme is SHOES... how fun is that? And if you need some vintage shoe images to work with, Lunagirl has some from the 18th century of Jane Austen through the romantic Victorians and elegant Edwardians, and on into the fabulous 1920s! In pink, white, blue, black, red, ivory, yellow, brown, even chartreuse bright green! Fancy footwear for ladies and gents, slippers and boots and even whimsical roller skates. Some with roses and other flowers, some from antique catalogues and fashion magazines... See my shoe collection here.

I can't wait to see what you create, and I know you'll enjoy the Design Team and Guest Designer creations, which I'll be adding below as they come in.

  • Vintage style is encouraged but not required.
  • Use a Lunagirl image and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
