I like my shoes to have a little pop to them. I came into a pair of plain grey canvas shoes so I jazzed them up a little by adding some stripes with geometric tribal inspired patterns in them.

To make them I used fabric paint and masked out the areas I wanted to leave grey with full sheet labels.  I cut out the shapes that I wanted and stuck them to the shoes.  You could also use masking tape.  I would suggest putting a strip of masking tape along the sole of the shoe to prevent the paint from getting on it. I'll certainly be doing that next time.
