Memory Art From Paper Crafting Supplies

Do you capture a memory in altered art?  What do you do with all those tiny ballet shoes once they outgrow them?

Earlier I created Memory Art for Little with her first ballet shoes.  I finally completed my projects by altering Little's Sister and Ali's first ballet shoes.

All you need are the ballet shoes, a fantastic glue and anything you have in your scrapbook or art studio.  You can see Little's shoes at my blog post: What Do You Do With The Ballet Shoes?

Little's Shoes
Remove the inner sole of the shoe for a pattern to cut to your paper.
 
 I love to fussy cut Graphic 45 paper.
 The butterfly is from Blue Fern Studios.  I added a little banner "Learn to fly."

Ali's Shoes
Prima flowers and bird's nests are so much fun on Ali's shoes.  Instead of the elastic on the top of the shoes I added a pink ribbon.
The little flowers are from Recollection. Look close to the pink crochet lace underneath the white.
 
 
The long, looped part of the ribbon is separate from the bow.  I hot glue the long strip to the heel.  I created the bows and added them to the ribbon already attached.

Little's Sister's Shoes and Story
I had picked up a couple of flamingo feathers several years ago and saved them.  Recently, I was able to find two more.  For those in the know...these are not flamingo feathers from any USA flamingos, that is illegal.  Neither did I pluck any feathers.  As the second set age they will get that more delicate look of the first set.
I choose to leave the elastic band in her shoes.  LS loves fairies so this is perfect from Graphic 45's Once Upon A Spring. 
 I added seed pearls in the flowers.  It looks great with the pearl lace.
A perfect pair of memory shoes for a perfect little dancer.


Do you have a performer:  dancer, athlete, singer, actor, etc.?  What have made into Memory Art?

VERY SPECIAL NOTE
My first giveaway since coming back to the blogging world is Thursday.  I have a great project and a wonderful sponsor that will be giving away three products to three winners.  I will see you Thursday!!

  2. I love memory art and these are so special. My mother-in-law made pillows, aprons and throws out of Papa's shirt when he passed. She also made purses from my dad's ties when he passed. Beautiful projects Debby!!
