shoe-stencils.jpgIf your love of shoes extends beyond merely putting them on your feet and you appreciate the footwear form enough to want to look at it all day, then these stylish, contemporary 'shoe stencils' could be for you.

Created on the rather wonderful premise of the fairytale princess developing a shoe fetish in the years of her happily ever after, the 'Cinderalla goes shopping' stencils create a convincing trompe l'oeil effect on the surface of your choice, and take just a few minutes to complete.

The ideas are endless...
