Believe... by Cathy

Hello! If you've been following along all year you'll know our monthly challenge inspiration has been based on some of Kim's favourite songs, and this month we are sharing the beautiful song Believe from the classic Christmas Movie Polar Express! This month will be our last Blog Challenge and we can't wait to see your Anything Goes Christmas/Winter projects. Please share with us using the hashtag #ECDEC2019 or by linking below.

We would love to see all your Emerald Creek Makes in our Group!!


Happy holidays! 'Tis the season to create a fun little decor piece for our December Dare! I say if the shoe fits, upcycle it! I got a boatload of vintage baby shoes off of eBay and I've been having creative fun with them! They are so cute and really give you a totally unique look - and so many styles can be used to embellish them.

For my project, I used the Christmas Polka stamp as a little goodie sitting inside the shoe. Since it's a big stamp, I copied it and reopened in Photoshop to make it smaller. I also gave it a little vintage filter edit. After reprinting, I tore around it, distressed it, and then brushed it with oil for a vellum look which is a little transparent.

The shoe itself was embossed with Molten Glistening Glass which gives it an iridescent look while looking icy and slick! I also embossed some button brads and a snowflake charm which you'll see in pics further down.
Putting it all together was the fun part!

You can see what the powder does to the brads and the snowflake charm! Beautiful iridescence and shine!

And what's inside? It's stuffed with sisal and a decorated tree, candy, bauble, and Christmas Polka paper.

Just look at the iridescence and icy look! The bark made really cute sled runners! 

This would be darling for baby's first Christmas or a winter baby shower!
