I painted some Kiss shoes for my dad for his birthday last year.  My little sister loved them, and knew she wanted painted shoes of some variety with the same style of shoe (I ones I bought for her were plain black Vans).  She was very unhelpful on what she wanted though, hehe, except she knew she wanted them to be black and white.  So, I went the floral direction.  I found some flower designs online and used them for my inspiration.





I used Elmer's Painters paint pen (the white fine tip one) to draw on the designs.  It took a few layers to get the lines bright enough, and the pens really didn't like the canvas that much, but it worked out in the end.  The pens are permanent, so I didn't bother trying to seal them up on anything. 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks!  ^_^

I'm a little crazy, and didn't sketch it first.  I just jumped right in.  Who needs practice right?  I like to live on the wild side.  ^_^

These are awesome!  I saw a tutorial on Pinterest on how to waterproof canvas shoes.  I bet it would also "seal" the artwork too!
