Glued them down after trimming them with a slide cutter

I used Elmers first but it was annoying (slipping and sliding and taking a long time to dry) I now use a very small amount of E-600

I then painted the journal gold and used a foam stamp and matte red paint

Upcycling a small bookcase

I found this heavy little bookcase made of some kind of hard wood composite and it was a nasty yellow so to make it fit in with my Bohemian Gothic front room I reworked it a bit.

 

Steampunk slippers for a party

I love Isotoner Ballet style Slippers and they are great for decorating.

We are having an Engagement-Bachelor/Bachelorette-Anniversary-Shower party before and during a Steampunk Ball here in Boise on March 12th and I am painting a pair of slippers for event.

I finished them last night, trying to decide if I should add some rhinestones to the gears on the toes

Finished slippers

the clamp is just to spread the material tight so I could paint on it and the toes are stuffed with tissues
