I don't wear flats often - only with pants. I think heels make my legs look better in skirts and dresses. Dropping the kids off at the sitters, I noticed her 19 year old daughter's shoes there - painted! White canvas shoes that she had painted a red paisley pattern on. Instantly I thought of the blue shoes! I asked if her daughter would paint them for me, and she said yes!
I left the options open - I wanted to be surprised! I know Caitlin is super-artistic and anything she came up with would be beyond great. And when the told me the shoes were done...well, they were even far better than I had imagined! I love them! And I have worn them about 20 times in the last month, as they are now my favorite shoes. I just threw a couple coats of modge podge on after she had given them back to me, let it dry and they were good to go. And they've held up really, really well - no chips or scratches or anything! (In the pictures below, you can see the actual shoe color on the sides - she left some of the original color on the sides and just faded the front and the heel into it.)
So, get out those paints, and those plain shoes, and make your day a little brighter with a cool new paint job ;) What a way to introduce new shoes into your collection for a much more reasonable price!
THANKS CAITLIN! You are very talented and you are going to go amazing places in life with your artistry!! Love ya!
