Ching says, KAYA!Italic

We had some antiques displayed in our shelves in my husband’s possession from his ancestors. The item that catch my eyes is this cute wonderful pair of old shoes that my husband’s mother owned when she was a toddler.

These shoes delighted the whole family of my husband for over 120 years. They belonged to my husband’s mother. Due to the foresight of first, his grandmother, then mother and now my husband, the shoes, as a decorative item have been seen and admired by several
generations of family members.

These shoes are water resistant and made of tan and black leather with six button hooks. The shoes show only slight wear and they are stuffed with cotton, that so far, over more a hundred years, no one as had the nerve to remove.

Materials used:
-Paper Pizazz heritage pattern paper, alphabet tiles, tags and art cut-outs
-DCWV pattern papers
-Eksuccess vellum paper
-Making Memories brads
-Tim Holts distressed ink
-Inkadinkado blending chalks
-Elizabeth’s foil embossed sticker
-Ribbon and fibers
-Scotch double sided tape and glue stick

Layering, matting, inking, chalking, tearing, journaling

About Me:

Wishing you all the best
throughout the coming year!

Best Wishes,
