Craft & Quilt Fair

Hi, thanks for stopping in for a visit.
This is one of my latest pieces.  Lots of Faux Backgrounds using a variety of different Jo Sonja Mediums, on a large canvas.
Are you going to the Craft & Quilt Fair. 
Its on in Melbourne starting Thursday, 22nd July.
I'll be there on Friday morning demonstrating at the BFDA stand, E18 then helping my friend Rachel conduct a Make and Take workshop in Craft Circle 3 at 12.30pm
If you are at the show on Friday, please stop by and say Hello.  I'd love to meet some more blogging friends!

I'm really getting into the spirit here.  My good friend Robyn suggested I paint a pair of shoes.
So here they are-Crackled Iridescent paints over my old black shoes.  I wore them yesterday and all my students think they're "So Cool" my family of three guys think "I'm nuts".
What do you think?
Thank you for stopping by* Hugs, Anna

Love your shoes! absolutely perfect, just what you need for your class.
it reminds me of the time i got a waistcoat and added felt yo yos and centered them with buttons, all for a kids class about felt monsters.
You go girl!

Hi Anna,
Love your latest creations (the shoes are indeed very cool!). And I can't believe I missed your previous post. Oh, you have been to the Sunshine Coast. I'm jealous! The pictures look marvellous! Thanks for sharing!

I think unique get's labeled nuts...and it's oh so sad! imagine the world where we all follow our own style whimsies! and not walk around like a bunch of clones caught in fashion traps! hehee...

i think your shoes are funky! and you are a gutsy lady for wearing them, and a creative soul for making them to begin with!

ciao bella

Hi Anna
I've been looking at your blog admiring all your work. Everything is so varied but I was a bit shy about leaving a comment. Hope you enjoyed Kerryannes course, I thought it was great. Good luck with the expo.

Hi Anna,

Just love those shoes! Kept an eye out for you at the Expo but unfortuately did'nt see you.

Hope you had a great time and didn't spend too much money!

Hugs, Hazel

Your shoes are magical, Anna!! I think my kids would label me crazy too if I painted my shoes BUT, if I liked them, I wouldn't care. I'm with Carmelina...there are far too many sheep being slaves to the fashion trends. Individuality speaks for a creative soul. Good for you!
