fashion friday- statement flats

sf

I am loving the current trend of funky and colorful statement flats- I mean who doesn't want to make a statement with their shoes!? While I love to buy shoes (boy do I LOVE to buy them) I decided to transform a pair that I already had in the closet that could use a little update. I wanted something BR IGHT and funky- The look I was going for- Keith Haring meets polka dots!


l
1. I started with a pair of yellow flats that I purchased last year at Target. 2. I used Tulip Soft Fabric Paint and a couple of small brushes. 3. Next I went to town painting lots of circles on the shoes.

4.I covered the entire surface with lots of dots. 5. Once the black paint was dry I added a pop of color inside of the dots. 6. And added a few random pops of pink.

7. Last I added a few little details here and there.

I love looking at your blog....your art is wonderful and happy and always puts a smile on my face!

You not only think outside the box, draw and paint outside the box...but now you truly "walk" outside the box!

How many of us are going to paint our shoes now?
