Take your decoupaging skills to another level by transforming a pair of thrift store heels into a one of a kind fashion statement! I used Modge Podge (available at most craft stores) with a clear finish, but it also comes in antique and sepia. The color achieved on my shoes comes from using sheets of the Financial Times, which has a salmon hue. (I would never read a financial newspaper, but have always noticed the color as I passed my local newstand!)  Simply tear or cut newsprint pieces, spread a thin layer of glue directly on the shoe and on the back of the newsprint; press firmly to remove any air bubbles, then coat the top of the newsprint with more of the glue. Repeat until the entire shoe is covered, then add one final layer of glue to seal the deal. Voila!
