So I had this pair of really really cheap shoes in my closet and I was on the point of throwing them away as I never wear white and probably never will (unless I ever accept a job in a hospital which is very unlikely for so many reasons  Wink).
Then I thought about some zentangles I recently made on paper and thought why not on these shoes?..
I used a simple waterproof black marker I had lying around.

After starting I remembered I should take a "before" picture:


Et voil!


Now I wear these shoes almost daily; love them (and so happy I didn't throw them away)!

Those turned out adorable! I am glad you didn't throw them away too! I am now eyeing my daughter's shoes from across the room....
