I started with this dark brown shoe. I mainly chose this shoe because it reminded me of someone special to me and the paper I had was brown.
I noticed that although the shoe was very dark brown, the highlights were more blue, which makes sense because blue and orange are complimentary colors and brown is just a dark orange.
here is where the collage aspect showed up, the inside of the shoe was a cream color so I decided to use masking tape which almost matched the color perfect for that space. You can also see here the blue being put in the highlights.
I decided that the black in the bg needed to be really black so i pushed really far!

here is a close up of the inside of the shoe where I added a small text detail to tell a story.
