Zentangle High Heels - featuring Elmer's products

Want to snazz up some dull high heels that you have lying around your closet?  Its easy, all you need is an Elmer's Paint Pen!



You can take your high heels from this:


To this:

With just a paint pen!  

This is my very first zentangle project.  I've always loved the look of zentangles and always wanted to try it.  A swap partner showed me this website for different patterns: http://tanglepatterns.com/tag/zentangle
I went through the website and randomly added a piece here and there that I liked (and was in my skill level to achieve) until the entire shoe was filled in to my liking.  For the little gaps, I added little hearts, dots, and lines.  Each shoe is completely different, and the pair are definitely one of a kind!

They are painfully high!  My sister is great in heels but said that these ones are actually painful!  Lol!  Her boyfriend really likes them, though.  ^_^

These are gorgeous!  They look so professional.  I'm really impressed with how the pen came out on the patent leather.  They look like designer shoes!  (They ARE designer shoes!)

Very cool!  If they are too high (and painful Wink ) to wear much at least you can display them as art!

I really love these shoes.  I would like to do this on my daughter's clarinet case.  I think that would look cool. Do you think the Elmer's paint would work? She has an old case and it would be nice to spruce it up.  She would be jazzed!

Thanks!  I imagine it would work just fine!  They work on many different surfaces and are permanent.  I'm not sure if it would scratch off of not, so you might want to test it out on a small area before doing it on the whole case.

I'm pretty sure the Elmer's paint pen would come off with like rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover if you tried it on a small part of the case and didn't like it.  And I would imagine using a spray sealer would be super easy to do on a hard case.  They sell so many different kinds!
