I have a little bit of a shoe obsession and living in sunny San Diego, I gravitate towards buying lots of wedge sandals- perfect for warm weather dress up and feeling tall- I have many pairs! My most recent purchase was a pair of brown canvas wedge sandals (cheap and comfy!) that I thought would be perfect to alter with a little paint!
I picked colors that would look nice with the dark brown background- fun but not too bright- so they could still be more of a "neutral" brown shoe.
I painted directly on the canvas surface with acrylic paint (from experience I know it won't come off!)
I painted lots of abstract shapes of flowers.
