Marie Shoe Book Designed for Alpha Stamps

Back in December I was busy designing all kinds of Marie Antoinette Inspired art which I will be posting here over the next few weeks.  The first piece is a Marie inspired shoe book.  The size of the unaltered chipboard shoe is 4” x 6”.  The front and back covers are made from the chipboard shoes.  I used the chipboard as a template to create 4 cardstock pages for the inside of the book. I used a jump ring tied with ribbons to put the book together.
Some of the images on each page stickup past the top of the shoe and when all the pages are stacked together you can see them peaking up behind the first page.
I used decorative paper, images from various collage sheets (see the list below), ribbon, buckles and ink to decorate each page.
FIRST PAGE
SECOND PAGE
THIRD PAGE
FOURTH PAGE
Below is a list of the Alpha Stamp Supplies I used to create this shoe book:


Alpha Stamps is also hosting a Marie Antoinette (Off with Her Shoes!) swap based on the chipboard shoe.  If you are interested in joining the swap, click here for all the details.
