Surfin' Love Shack of Shoes

Terri here, with another fun project featuring the brand new So Suzy Stamps January Stamp of the Month Club Stamps.  Hey, that's a mouthful!  I had so much fun with this project.  Initially, I wanted some kind of a shoe rack,  What I ended up with is the Surfin' Love Shack of Shoes!  Kind of a cross between the B52's and The Beach Boys......and Payless Shoes.

To begin, I watercolored my So Suzy Flip Flops, each set in a different color, using my Tim Holtz distress ink mini cubes.  Next, I created a panel of 4 individual fused pockets, leaving the entire right side exposed to fill with these gorgeous sandals, glitter, sequins and DoubleClick Skittles.  Once I added my shoes and bling, I fused the entire right side with my WRMK Fuse.

To make this beach style sign post, I took some kraft straws, cut them up into different sizes and wrapped May Arts Ribbon burlap string around the posts, then made little signs with a flag die.  I did some masking of the stamps to better display the wording like signage.... you know, those old post signs pointing the way to your destination?  

Lastly, I added more ribbon and some torn paper in the middle for a sandy beach feel.
Love what you're seeing?  Sign up today!  

All of the stamps featured are exclusive to the So Suzy Stamps Stamp a Month Club.  If you would like to join in on the fun, please be sure and sign up!
