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.


Ain't afraid of God, devil, death, nor destruction. Them's my four aces.
