Victorian Boot

Last November, when I was at retreat, I had this wild idea.  I want to make a Victorian era boot.  I knew I wanted it to be my own design from scratch and I wanted to use Graphic 45 papers.  At the top of this post is my original design.  You can see I had a problem with the toe.  First I wanted it rounded, then squared.  I settled for the squared.  I liked the look much better.  
The pieces/pattern was easy to cut out.  I had ideas how to put it together but didn't know exactly how until I actually tried.  Follow along with the photos and you can see how I did each section of the boot.  
I cannot say this was an easy project.  It was not.  I wanted finished edges and an authentic look.  I think I achieved that.
Let me know what you think and email me any questions and/or thoughts.  I would love to hear from you.
Happy scrappin' !
