A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

What is on your art table....

1. a pair of orange shoes
2. a journal I am in the process of binding

My mom asked me why orange shoes.  I told her Orange is the New black according to Netflix.  Ha ha.

Actually I have a shirt I just bought that it will match. 

Super simple to do.

A pair of canvas shoes from Walmart 6.00
Tulips Fabric spray paint (on hand)
Paint Brush
Baby Wipe (I don't do well with edges)

I took the top of the orange spray bottle off the paint and dipped my brush in and started painting the shoes.

I wanted to put blue flowers on the toe but that wasn't what I needed the shoes to look like LOL

I should put them in the oven to bake....

Put it in the oven to dry away from cats... happy!?!
#2 is a journal for my fav. person at work...
I printed the pages on legal pager.  I need to use up the ink so I can start my ink subscription.   I did it on both sides.  It lined up for the most part.  Some was a bit wonky but I left the wonky in.
I chose the papers for the cover and back cover.  The paper came from the paper pack newsworthy by The paper Studio, the Hobby Lobby line
I also had folded it and made 4 sheets signatures
I then cut out the back and front from scraps of chip board.  I usually use the back of paper pads or I use the matt board scraps hobby lobby use to sell.

To finish it up I will need to bind it.  I will pre punch the holes and use the Coptic stitch to sew it up.
For a complete tutorial search for SeaLeamon on youtube.  I pretty much follow her tutorial to a T except I do use eyelets on the front and back.  I just like that element.
