Margorie Rose Memories – paper shoe no. 8

Marjorie  Rose was my grandmother

an amazing woman who passed on her gift of creativity to me.  Shoe no.8 is dedicated to her memory.  Handmade in paper and tissue printed with images of my grandmother as a young child.  Have so many happy memories of her, a fantastic cook, made absoloutely everything from her clothes to summer and winter soft furnishings.  Made clothes for me as a child and always an identical dress or coat for my doll.  Wedding dresses, wedding cakes, christmas cakes and puddings, christmas crackers, tree decorations,  surreal savoury birthday parties for me to curried eggs and pineapple upside down cake.  She was a treasure, died back in 1987 and buried locally.

armorial amour paper shoe no. 7

Well todays effort was extremely testing of my patience……….  managed to make a heel, not as graceful as I would like but it looks good.  Shoe is made of hand printed tissue paper from my own  toile erotique collection, black paper,  together with its own coat of arms…………….  What am I going to do with them, any ideas!   these are meant to be just trials, but they are becoming very detailed and have a life all of their own…………..shoe no. 7 IMG_2750_2shoe 7.5 IMG_2752Shoe no.7.2IMG_2770shoe no.7.3.IMG_2762_2Shoe no.7.4IMG_2773_2shoe no.7 toile erotique backgroundshoe no. 7 toile etotique 2.IMG_2791
