In response to my first mention on CraftGossip.com (http://recycledcrafts.craftgossip.com/sneaker-re-do/2012/07/06/)... I'm posting some free poppy postcard downloads. The finished image size is 3"x5", and I've tweaked the coloring so you can pick the one that best suits your craft color theme. Just right-click & do a "save as." Thank you to Craft Gossip for making me feel like a professional blogger! :o) Yay!
Just in time for the summer solstice - my hand painted poppy shoes! I just used standard acrylic craft paints, a water soluble marker & a lot of patience. I love them, I had to take the pictures and post them before they get dirty :o)
I downloaded & printed some vintage style clipart images to inspire me.
My bee graphic is a download from Graphics Fairy & my poppies are from a "learn to draw" tutorial. (http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/how-to-draw-a-poppy.htm)
