These Boots were made for Walking - Neil Walker


Who remembers that song then?
I do but then I'm old....haha
So your trivia today is, how old exactly
is it?  Ok, the song was released on
17.2.66 so it's the 50th Anniversary.
Can you remember who sung it?

So The DT were given the song title
but unfortunately we had a few hiccups
along the way so today Neil
is showing you his boots and Dawn 
will be here tomorrow with the 
Alpha/Dictionary Challenge and a 
special post for you!

Neil has actually been away walking
in Cumbria, so he 
definitely needed these boots...

So what has been up to -

Starting in my watercolour card sketchbook
 I drew a pair of boots.

I used a mask and a pen to outline a base

I used more masks to add further details.

Then Distress Markers and a water brush
 to add colour.

The finished page my Lake District walking
 boots page.....

Well I really hope those boots were comfortable
and waterproof!
Thanks Neil, love this!

This is what Neil used -

See you tomorrow with the
Alpha/Dictionary Challenge!

  3. Lovely page, the colouring is great.

  4. Nancy Sinatra and she stayed at number one in the charts for 4 weeks before the sun aint gonna shine anymore took over, I'm not a geek or old music stats nut but know as I just made a 50th wedding anniversary card for someone and I like to put odd facts about the date they are celebrating and this was one of those. Fab card Neil and great drawing too.

  5. Fabulous page Neil, hope you had a great holiday

  6. Great page & a great song! I remember it well so I must be old too...Nancy Sinatra might even have been joined by her father on the record....
