1  painted slip-ons (a bit image heavy) in Shoes: Completed Projects by tuffy-wuffyXcore on: June 11, 2006 10:34:19 PM
so, craftster- long time, no see.

but school is done and summer boredom-borne creativity has returned.

one of my best friends (basically the kid bro i never had) turned 16 last week. well, he has long been enamored of the jack purcell's i painted last summer (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=48002.0), so i told him i would paint some shoes for his birthday if he so desired. 

this is the outcome:

the text says "i won't stop screaming until everyone is listening." it's from a song by remembering never. i don't like them (hardcore is not my thing), but my friend loves 'em, and i liked the lyrics in respect to the style i was going for.

and here's the recipient sporting them:

project soundtrack:
snails- the format
your favorite weapon- brand new

thanks for your time, craftsters.

holy wow. you people make me jealous.
i'm mostly a board prowler on here (you all make amazing crafts, as well as have amazing hair), but i thought maybe i could get some input.

i am about to get a haircut and (hopefully) color. i need suggestions.

i don't do super-short bangs and i can't do "unnatural" colors for christian school dresscode...

the back:

close-up to show colors:
the dark brown is my natural color. there's also blonde and a bit of red (the red used to be waaay bright).

it needs to be something that can be styled QUICKLY AND EASILY. like 5 minutes-ish. i am lazy.. er... i mean low maintenance

i think i want to do a dark brown/black in the back and a few streaks in the front...?

i have had essentially the same cut for about 6 months and it's getting old. and it hasn't been colored in a few months either.

3  painted jack purcell's (image heavy... dial-up will suffer) in Shoes: Completed Projects by tuffy-wuffyXcore on: August 12, 2005 09:59:38 PM
umm... first post...

i got these shoes about a year ago from a friend whom they didnt fit. they fit me perfectly, but i'm not a huge fan of converse purcell's. (give me good ole chucks any day)

i knew i could come up with a use for them, and i finally did.

i know painting shoes isn't the most original thing ever, but w/e.

craft soundtrack: my aim is true- elvis costello; i am the movie- motion city soundtrack

the victims

the weapons

the hindrancehelper/attention whore

the final damage





now i just need a cool way to display them (tooooo colorful for me personally to actually wear, although in theory, i could...)
ideally, i would like to paint shoeprints about halfway up the wall and nail the shoes above so it looks like they walked up the wall. but i am only going to be living at home for about a year and figure my parents won't want shoeprints on the wall when i leave. so until i have a place of my own, i need an alternative...
