Fairy Shoe Challenge!................
and I decided do this, and I'm only just beginning it today, and its due tomorrow....
my mom would just roll her eyes at this, I always waited for the last minute to do the ''homework''....but I always got it done! LOL
I don't own shoes, living in Florida I only wear flip flops, but because of a friend, I remembered last minute about my old dancing shoes! how appropriate!
I absolutely, undeniably have to disengage from this world, and do something completely and totally fun, unpredictable, engaging, creative, and different inspired from realms beyond and above this one.......so I'm in!
This is what I'm working on.....
stay tuned !
.....Many hours later.......
ok the deed is done.
I really think the word "challenge" should be replaced with a more user friendly term??? LOL
I have to say I don't really have as much material as I tend to think I do. While I thought this project would bring out my creativity, it did not, it challenged me LOL as the endeavor implies. I really had to work to find a way to create something out of what is already on hand, and I didn't have much at all!
I had questions like what would a Fairy really wear...and things from Nature come to mind which become my own criteria. I did not have amounts of materials to ''work with''....and a plan just never showed up.
I paced quite a bit.
I began to have fun when I finally had an idea and surrendered to the tediousness necessary, and began to work with it. Then unexpected things come up, etc but worked through them.
But its done! I'm exhausted now almost midnight, as I've been up since 4;30 this morning, and I will need tomorrow to sleep as late as possible and a dear friend is driving here to see me and I must be with her.
The good news, is I actually like the way it came out, simple, but pretty and dramatic....love that combination! I wanted to do more and I REALLY wanted some bling....... but I simply didn't have anything and I scoured this house LOL to see what I could take apart....and I could not find my sparkly buttons......also I usually do not work with dark colors, but again, I worked with what I had.
I'm glad I didn't have to do both shoes.....I will save the other for another time....
All in all I like how it came out! I'd wear these myself LOL
This shoe is covered in feathers ........Classic Elegance!.....for a Midnight Ball :D The theme for this Ball was Deep Berry Richness....lush and mysterious......we had fun!
Trying to show the layers of these gorgeous iridescent feathers.......rich with multi colors in varying hues....
I love ties that come up around the shoe itself from the outside......
I don't know if I did this shoe for a Fairy or for myself LOL....it is truly something I'd wear !
but wait! there's more !
.....a new development!
The Fairy Princess walked outside this morning, to test the daylight in her new shoes.....she likes it !!! LOL... she decided its not just for Midnight Ball's!
She lost one shoe in the evenings reverie though......and didn't mind one bit.
~ (Fairy wax's poetic here.....) ~
She said she had such a beautiful night at the Midnight Ball
she stayed up to watch the raindrops fall,
as she sauntered outdoors in the early light,
she daydreamed, sighing, about her lovely night......
She said she found love!......
"Oh what is it about Princesses both Human and Fae, who find love during a Ball only to lose one shoe??"
She spoke of her dilemma to her friend Black the Unicorn, of how she found love and does not know where he is and how she longs to be with him again, and he quickly reared up on his majestic legs and sped off to assist the Fairy Princess in finding her love........
The Fairy Princess however, was too tired and too much in longing to being in a quest for a search for her new love and she decided she would linger by the pond.
Its reflective waters would speak to her and show her her beloveds face as it soothed her............
