This is the first time I have made something just for a competition... from what I am told, its not a really strict competition, so I thought it would be a good one to enter!!

The subject was "Boots - yesterday, today tomorrow"

This is was my second idea....my original idea was to make three Holden car boots, a vintage model, one from today and a concept car but I couldn't find three decent pics!! icon_cry.gif .......Anyway this is what I came up with instead..... I will hopefully post a better pic when the galleries are up again icon_biggrin.gif

icon_eek.gif First of all, let me say, "Holy Moly!" That is fantastic work thumbs_up.gif Now, let me ask if my dingy brain has this correct icon_razz.gif ? Is the fur/skin, the "yesterday"? Brilliant icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone !!!

lynda-bob - you got it....the skin/fur is the yesterday!! I was going to make a closed shoebox with tissue paper and a shoe lace hanging out from the lid.... but I thought this was more fun and sort of bought the whole thin together..... and a lot easier! icon_lol.gif

I was rather hoping you lived near Tulsa, Ok. So that I could see that at the upcoming Sugar Art Show in September icon_cry.gif . So now I will just have to see your picture here and dream of doing something like that some day. Great Job!!!!
