I agree! Why not have our clothes -- and shoes and bags -- exactly the way WE want them?!

Fashion shoes

Nice work. I have always been keen to use clothes and shoes which are unique but it is often hard to find ones which are perfect for me. If I can use your technique to customise my footwear then I can finally have the look I dream of and make my friends jealous.
I like the fact that you said that it works on other items of clothing as well. As much as I love fashion shoes I would like all of my wardrobe to be unique

I'm going to try it next on the flat flap of a handbag -- I have some big hard-foam geometric stamps I can picture looking great on there. Photos to come (if it works!).

What a great technique Margot! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

Thanks -- I really wasn't wanting distinctly colorful sandals this time, just something fun that would stay with the original color. --Margot

Love the shoes! Like that you left the natural leather colour underneath.

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
