|Linda Teddlie Milton here and I'm so pleased to contribute my art shoes to this cause. Although many people think of heart disease
as a man's problem, in fact, heart
disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. It is
also a leading cause of disability among women. Let's do something about it!|
|Mossimo "Pernella" black velvet pumps were my starting point.|
|Floral foam was added as a base for the moss.|
|The shoes were taped off with newspaper|
to provide protection for the next steps.
|"Moss" (model railroad scenery) was added.|
|"trees" (also model railroad scenery) were added, |
and everything was sprayed with a glittery silver paint,
followed by black paint for shadows.
|Silk flowers, nubby yarn, crystals, beads, coins, |
and trinkets were added to create the "Treasure Hunt"
|Here's the Monkey King, perched on top|
of one of the shoes.
|A scary little skull tops off the other shoe.|
|A teeny tiny vehicle is on its way towards the treasure.|
|Jungle-y treasure hunt!|
