|My decoupaged shoes and Doc Marten boots were all the rage at Quilt Market. They were made with text fabric in my line by Hoffman Fabrics.
|These are the products that I used to create these one of a kind shoes. Liquitex Matte Medium as the glue, and Gloss Medium as the sealer.
|The word 'Artist" fit perfecting on the back spine of the boot
|I carefully cut the black and white stripe fabric over the grommet section of the shoe, and then decided to just paint the other side with black acrylic paint, to make it easier.
|Fiber Artist. I was particularly happy with this part of the shoes. When the boots were completely dry, I painted about 2 coats of the Liquitex Gloss Medium, careful to let them dry before the next coat.

|The shoes are Alegria Paloma. I wear this brand everyday! They are sturdy, like the boots in construction, have wide areas in which to fit the text, which is a must.
|I cut out each word and piece of artwork, just like the boots. They are wearable, but I wouldn't recommend wearing them in the rain.
|So happy with how they turned out. Who said fabric is just for sewing and quilting? I say "Imagine the Possibilities"
