I've been doodling on shoes again...
I've had these ankle boots for a year, but I also have a pair of black clogs, and a pair of black knee-high boots, so these boots were sort of redundant. They are very comfy, but I thought they were were kind of blah, so they deserved a makeover.
I bought oil-based silver Sharpie paint markers, and tonight, while watching some brainless TV, I went to town on the boots. I'm looking forward to wearing them! I have no idea how the Sharpie will hold up if/when I wear them in rainy or snowy weather. Hopefully, OK?
Last summer, I did this to a pair of ugly but comfy orthopedic sandals, with a white Sharpie oil-based paint marker. I think it really helped. Now I actually WANT to wear them instead of hiding their hideousness in the closest!
I've doodled on other stuff, such as this purse below, with regular Sharpies. The purse is several years old, and the Sharpie has held up well. I have a black purse I'm bored with. Maybe it will get the silver Sharpie treatment next. But it has a gold clasps, so maybe I'll use silver AND gold, so it will go with more.
And then there's iPad covers. This one below was my first iPad.
And this is my current iPad cover, done with black, white, silver, gold, and bronze Sharpies.
And this one was a gift for an old friend.
I've decorated bowling shoes with Sharpies, both for me and a colleague. Thank goodness I doodle a LOT better than I bowl. I may roll lots of gutter balls, but hey, at least my feet are gonna look good! I decorated the bowling shoes probably 8 years or so ago; it took me until this summer to realize that I could doodle on other shoes, too.
Hmm, I wonder what I can doodle on next? My car is already decorated, and my husband would not be happy if I attacked his shoes....
