Hello everyone Smiley

It's been a while since I posted anything on craftster Sad
But, I can fix that Wink

I've had a pair of checkered slip-on vans for a while and decided to paint lovely birds on each shoe.

Here is the right shoe:


Originally I was going to have both shoes with the same bird except flipped horizontally so that they'd face each other. As I was going to paint the other shoe, I got sidetracked and found a beautiful image of a peacock. And so, the other shoe is of a peacock.



Let me know what you think && thanks for looking Cheesy
