Have you ever calculated how many loads of laundry you do in one year. Frightening isn’t it? I guess, conservatively, I do about 6 loads of wash a week, every week 😦 That’s a whooping total of 312 loads of laundry annually. I’m sure glad I don’t have to take it down to the river and beat it on some big ol’ rocks.
Lucky for Mr B too, he might have to do this, hehe.
With all this practice, you’d think I’d be a real Pro. After all, I am the Boominator !!! (a human looking, apparently unstoppable cyborg, sent to earth to do housework). If you think you have the stomach for the macabre, just take a look at my once beautiful AQUA SNEAKERS ! (Val, look away now !! )
Horrifying !!! Is it not?
Boomdee made this laundry Boo-Boo while trying to bleach the soles clean before I pack**. They had faded somewhat in earlier washes to a lovely sea-foam colour. But now, there was barely a hint of their former glory 😦
Yes, after a number of wonderful vacations together, sharing fine wine on the porch and sunny days in the park, I was almost in tears.
Even my peeps were sad 😦
Then I thought, “hey, why not custom dye them just like the ribbons from this project here?“
I already had the alcohol inks and Blending Solution. You’ll find them at most scrapbook stores. Once mixed to a heavenly shade of Aqua Blue, I used a sponge brush to apply it directly to the canvas. The re-do went like so…………
Now, I don’t know what will happen in the next wash or even a sudden rain shower for that matter. I might be leaving a colourful rainbow where ever I go, LOL 😀 I think I like that image !
I actually quite fancy them. Maybe this is the next big thing?
Maybe I’ll be rich Maybe I should just learn to do laundry and avoid these Aqua Shoe Boo-Boo Re-do Review’s?
**PS, All Packed ! Next stop San Jose !!!
Have you ever ruined something you
love in the laundry?
