So, some of you may remember me as green_day_gurl_ (I made the Van Gogh converse here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39772.0 )
I went on kind of a hiatus for a few years, but I'm back and have a brand new screenname!  Still been crafting all the while, though  Wink

And now I present to you three of my latest projects


Here's one of my latest projects--cheap shoes from Wal Mart, some acrylic paint, and black sharpies, and voila!












The second and third pairs were of black, low top converse that belong to my cousins, Lexie (13) and Mariah (12).
They had seen my "Silver Lining" flats and wanted THEIR shoes painted when I went up to CT (they live in CT, I live in FL) for 4 days.....yeah, lots of pressure, and I was scared to death that I was going to mess them up, but they wound up loving them.
Both were done with acrylic paint and glitter glue.


Here are Lexie's:








And Mariah's (my personal favorite):

I know you posted this like forever ago, but I just found them.  ^_^  They are so friggin' cute!  I'm pretty sure the first pair is my favorite!  Even though I do love the firework ones.  My husband is working on getting his pyrotechnic license so he can shoot off fireworks AND get paid for it.  Those firework shoes would be awesome to make for him.  What kind of paint did you use on these?  And how well did they hold up after wearing?
