Custom Sneakers by Alison Bevis

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts  

Welcome back,
It's Alison again...

I have altered a new pair of sneakers, by adhering a few die cuts - 
I added a little colour to the sneakers using the
Couture Creations Anna Griffin Pigment Powders

Step one - purchase some white canvas sneakers - you can of course, give your old shoes a new lease of life - or choose slip on shoes - or choose a pale colour to add some extra colour and shimmer too!!

Step two - Die cut - you can really add whatever takes your fancy? and almost any colour of the rainbow - I chose black cardstock! 
I've adhered them onto the shoe front and sides with the 
Anna Griffin Texture Paste in Matte - one coat over the top and let them dry!!

Step Three - pick some colours from the set of 'Mix & Match Pigments' - I've made them ALL up, just in case? I picked up a plastic paint palette and some 'Gum Arabic' (liquid not powder) 
I've added a 'pinch' of the Pigment Powder, a 'couple of drops' of the Gum Arabic and a 'squirt' of water and stirred the mixture - I left this to dry naturally.

Step Four - I added some water to each of the colours I thought I might use and started adding some colour  a little here and a bit more there. I coloured parts of the dies and added a little more colour in spots and blended everything together.

I've tried to capture the beautiful SHIMMER from the Pigment Powders.. it's a little difficult so you just might need to buy a set and have a go yourself!!

Our Couture Creations Wild & Free Collection will be shipping to stores from the 14th October

Thanks for visiting,
