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)!

Awesome transformation! They are so much more fun and interesting than the original shoe.

I love these!  I also had no idea those types of images were called zentangles, so I learned something too!  Smiley

And when you try making a drawing like this you'll even better understand the zen part of the name, it's really like meditation  Wink

Thanks! I used a simple permanent marker, but a fabric marker would probably be better.

I saw these on pinterest and have started to tangle to get my skills up. I plan to do some of these for Christmas presents ( It will take that long to build some skills.) I love them.
