Aged Beauty

I just love how this old shoe turned out.. I painted a bird nest and vine on both sides
What to do with all that wire...make shoe laces of course. I add a bead now and then
I tool a piece of copper and punched "nest" then aged it. Instead of ribbon, I thought a ribbon of wire was appropriate.
Heres the other side. looks like I need to add a few more glittered pins! I added beads to the ends of the wire.When I was finished I crackled it and then used metallic paints to shine it up. Love it! Let me know what you think
