Day 198(10 days late): Sympathies Card

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

A good friend of mine recently experienced the loss of someone very close to her. Since I cannot be there for her in person, I thought I would send her a handmade card to try and offer any support I can!

I just used a sheet of paper fromĀ a sketchbook folded in half with a bunch of prismacolor markers layered on top of each other. I spent about an hour and a half total on this doing all of the layers of marker. Here is the finished product!

And here is a close up of the rose…

I think overall it turned out pretty well, besides the wonky looking Y…. it got a little out of control. I hope my friend can get some comfort from this!

This party is the only reason I rushed back to Knoxville today! My friend had a Toms Style Your Sole Party! Basically, you order a bunch of plain white or natural pairs of Toms shoes and decorate them! The best part is, as always, Toms will send a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair bought! Anyways, I love Toms shoes, so it didn’t take any convincing for me to come! And I thought it would be so fun to decorate some! I decided to get the natural canvas ones (youth size six is equivalent to women’s size 7 or 7.5 and much cheaper!) because my shoes always get dirty easily. Here they are plain:

I had already decided before I came that I wanted to do some sort of paisley design on mine, but wasn’t sure exactly how it was going to work. I ended up just layering 3 large paisleys on them with different colored fine tip sharpies. Here’s what the ended up looking like!

I added a little swirly thing to the sides.

And it’s hard to see it, but I wrote my webpage for this 365 project on the heels :P

On my feet!

I think they turned out really awesome! The pictures don’t do justice to how bright the colors are! Everybody else had cool designs, too! I wanted to get pictures of all of them, but by the time I finished, a lot of people left. This pair is a purple zebra print.

And this last pair were the hosts! She (and her boyfriend helped :) ) drew some trees with little birds and stuff on hers! The branches of the trees on either side of the shoe connected and intertwined on the tops of the shoes.

This was so much fun! I’m glad I rushed back to do it! (Although I had the time wrong and showed up an hour early…)
