Very nice results. Isn´t it fun how easy you can create really good results with this technique?

Thanks, Kathy! Yeah, it's REALLY awesome! It's a bit tricky dealing with how delicate the soggy napkin is, and I certainly ripped a number in the process, but it's an amazingly forgiving medium, and I am just LOVING it!

So on my old shoes, the satin on the toe is SUPER ripped up (through all layers), and wouldn't look too pretty. could I cover that part up w. plain white napkin? would that look odd? Suggestions would be appreciated :)

You could trim away as much of the shredded tatters as possible and just leave it raw, as the OP did with her fabulous sheep shoes. Or you could try covering it up - not sure how that would look, but you can only find out by trying!

I've been leaving the platform uncovered on mine (shoeclips.weebly.com . . .), but it's really just a question of taste.

They are usable! I used worse in the past!
Maybe cover the whole shoe with a LIGHT (white, light yellow, light babyblue, , very light green, light pink...) colour first.

LOL! Those are BEAT, girl! But yeah, what Kathy said, and be sure to trim the shreds and smooth the rough edges (even use sandpaper or an emery board) so you get the smoothest possible surface. Post pics when you're done!

My latest creation - Watermelon decoupage pointes! Sewed green trim over the drawstring, dyed the drawstrings green, and added green satin ribbons and a sprinkling of rhinestones. I love them! But can anybody give me tips on how to avoid the darkening where two pieces of paper meet? Next time I'll try using far fewer pieces, anyway.

This is really good . Well done . I wonder could you use photographs ? If printed on normal non shinny a4 paper .
Also what did you use to paint the drawstrings .

Thanks very much for such a interesting tip.

But I have a question: How long will it be kept? Can it adhesive the water?

PLease share with me. Thanks again.
