ATC swap - New Shoes

Penny from The Linen Shelf and I did an ATC swap recently.  Penny finished hers ages ago and has been very patient waiting for mine!  The title was 'New Shoes'.  Mine is the one above, and is heavily inspired by Collage Coterie, with the blended paper gesso'd background, and the vintage image of the two girls.

This one above is the one Penny made for me - it's a lovely Norwich shoe shop window.  I really feel like a passerby looking in at the gorgeous shoes on display.

Thank you for swapping with me, Penny, and thank you for being so patient!

The first word that comes to mind on both of those lovely pieces of art is 'WOW!'
With work like that, all either of you can be is patient...just exquisite!

Both are wonderful and so different. I love my two ATC groups. It is always so much fun seeing how different they all turn out.

I keep looking at yours on my mantlepiece ...I wonder if the girl who didn't get the new shoes will pinch her sisters' !!! She looks vexed.
Thank you for my gorgeous egg print shopping bag which is perfect.

Penny is a busy swapper! Great theme! So sad that one girl had to go without a new pair of shoes. Hope she had a hot glue gun and embellishments to alter her old pair (that could be part 2 of the story...!) heehee.
