Fairy slipper

The air has a crispness to it now on these Georgia mornings - a hint of the coming fall.

Fall brings so many festivals and fun here.
I am so excited to be attending the Once Upon A Dream art event held in Asheville this fall.
And, I have been busy working on some wondeful swaps for this event.

The fairy slipper swap is one where we were asked to alter a shoe and fill it with artful goodies.
I had some pointe shoes from my daughters old ballet school which seemed like the perfect beginning for a fairy princess slipper.

A hand-coiled, tulle rose with sprinkling of champagne glitter adorns the toe.

I dyed the shoe with a tan wash to give the pink a more earthy feel.
Then, I added bits of crochet and trim.

The inside is lined with vintage flocked wallpaper.

More sprinklings of lucious ribbon and tulle. . .

waitig to be filled with some prairie fairy goodies!

Wishing you a magical fall season ~ xo's ~ Heidi
