A couple of Christmas presents, one that has yet to be given (if he finds this, I'm gonna spontaneously combust).  The first is a pair of canvas shoes I stencilled for Kayla (battersea)- I used fabric paint, then I bought the coolest ribbon I could find and used electrical tape for aglets:


The next is a pair of Elvis vans...honestly, the stencil was the best one I've ever made, but it turned out horrible when I put it on.  I pretty much Sharpied over most of the face where the white paint ran so much, and I got 'overspray' when I didn't even use spray paint! Doh.... Anywho, the gold is acrylic I think, and I sprayed clear Krylon over 'em. However, I don't think it's gonna work, because it says "use on any non-porous surface" and these shoes were very porous.  Ah well.

That is so cool.  I like his shoes, he will have to retire the other vans (REAl vans) now.   I love my shoes too.  I must retire my converse now.
