This is my first post here on Craftster. I have been lurking for over a year now, and I have finally gotten around to sharing my own creations. Just to tell you a bit about myself, I am a teenager living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I come from a relatively creative family, my siblings and I are all into arts/music/baking, etc. I love paper crafting, sewing, painting shirts/clothing, polymer clay and drawing, and I also love seeing other people's crafts.
I haven't been painting shoes for very long, these are only the third pair. The other two had a more realistic approach, so I decided to do something a little different and go for the cartoon style. And "Under the Sea" shoes were born!
(By the way, I have no idea if I'm posting the images correctly, so please tell me if I'm not so I can correct it)
^The shoes were about $7.00.
^I painted the background first. Trying to paint an underwater background was something I've never done before.
^So, this is what both shoes looked like after two hours of painting.
^I painted the details, and then outlined them with my black fabric marker.
^Sorry for the blurriness. The painted patch on the heel says "P Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney" And yes, it is a scuba diving pig.
Thanks for looking
