Marie Inspired Art with Shoe Picture Stand - Designed for Alpha Stamps

The pink and gold background is brocade fabric.
A few days before my stuff came from Alpha Stamps, I met my friend Sue Young for lunch.  As a present, she gave me a piece of her art and a picture stand with which to display it.  Both items were sitting on my work table when the box came from Alpha Stamps.  I unpacked the box and  began playing with the small set of chipboard shoes; making them walk etc.  The kind of silly stuff kids do.  All of the sudden synapses started firing in my brain.  I looked at the picture stand and looked at the shoes and I thought “these would be perfectly for the base of a picture stand”.  The package from Alpha Stamps also included some chipboard tags, which I thought would work great for the back of the stand.  I guess the moral of the story is, do silly things with your art supplies, you never know what might happen.

Stay tuned for more shoe picture stand examples, supply lists and a tutorial later in the week!
