Skip the blurb if you want.

I went and got my new Volleys for school from BigW. Usually I get my friends to write all over them. I decided that was getting a bit boring and now that all the Juniors at school have written on their shoes it is no longer unique. It is my last year of high school. I needed unique. I needed something that was me. Walking through work, I found metallic and sparkle fabric paint and voila! The new fangdangle not so plain and boring volleys were born. I really am very proud of them, I am also quite surprised how well they turned out.

Sorry about the long blurb, here are the pics:

Without shoelaces.


Outside of left shoe.


Outside of right shoe.


Rather iffy picture of the insides.


With shoelaces.


Artsy fartsy photo 'cos I can.


If anyone is interested in more pictures take a look herehere: http://s233.photobucket.com/albums/ee147/miss_limp-a-lot/Craftster%20pics/ (Sorry about the messy link, I am not too sure how to do the hyperlink thing)

Any comments, good or bad, are appreciated.

I hope you like them,

Thank-you. Smiley I forgot to mention in my main post, but the black outlines are just from sharpies, I couldn't get black paint much to my dismay.

Wow! Well, you certainly won't risk losing those anywhere; they're so bright! I love them though, they look fantastic.
Did you plan what you were going to paint or just make it up as you went along?

Hmm, not really, I drew some of the stars and flowers on first but in the end I got lazy and winged it.
