Fairy slippers

One of the great things about art events is the opportunity to participate in swaps to create something special for a new or old friend.
This fall, I am delighted to attend the Once Upon A Dream art event hosted by Jenn Hayslip.  The event is themed around prairie fairies in magical meadows.

There were so many swaps to choose from!
One swap is an altered shoe theme.  We are challenged to decorate a shoe fit for a fairy and fill it with some magical treats.
Here is a little sneaky peek at the fairy slipper I have been working on.

I chose an old ballerina point shoe that would have otherwise gone into a thrift store donation bin.
{oooh, I can't wait to show you the final pics when I get it finished!}

Have a great day sugahs!
