Just For Fun – Favourite shape – Boot

Over at Just For Fun this week Neet is still on the loose  and causing havoc with her challenge themes! LOL!  Well for me anyway.  For this week’s challenge Neet has chosen favourite shape for the theme.  For full details of the challenge, Neet’s, Zoe’s, and Von’s inspiration pieces and all the fab entries click on the JFF  link above.

My favourite shape, for Christmas decorations anyway, is a boot shape.

I made another ice skate for this weeks challenge.

I made one of these a few weeks ago which if you are interested is HERE.

I cut the shape out of MDF with my scroll saw, drilled some holes and painted first with white acrylic.  I added some brown acrylic around the edges and then more white coats until the  brown was covered.  I then sanded it all to take some of the white off.  There is logic in there some where! lol!

Right I am off for a cuppa.  Have a lovely evening everyone.

Best Wishes Florence.

PS Sorry for the double link Zoe.  The first one went wrong.

    Always amazed at your inventiveness Florence, if someone asked me my favourite shape, a boot would definitely not spring to mind LOL. But your boot is such an elegant shape and has such a victorian feel to it, it is fab, love the stamp and the nesties, I want those ones, maybe for christmas. Off to check out that stamp company now.

    Like you with your second attempt at uploading this is my second attempt at commenting. Chrome is playing up, it lets me on here, I comment, press publish and voila – it says it can’t find your blog!! Bah Humbug!
    I was saying what a talent you have and how much I like your boot. Is there no end to your talent! I wish I could do half of the things you do. How did you learn to cut wooden shapes like that?
    Anyway, this is fabulous, love everything about it – now off to find that key die.
    Hugs and Thanks for putting up with my challenges – Neet xx

      Hi Cecilia. Hope all is well. I have never used tin. I use aluminium tins quite a lot for garden decorations. What I would really like to projects using agricultural machinery bits and pieces. I have always fancied that or using old bikes to make giant wind chimes. Unfortunately, where I live, I have no way of getting hold of any materials. Maybe one day!!!!! Thank you for calling in and for your lovely comments. Always great to hear from you.
