in my shoes, just to see
what it's like, to be me.



so a while back, I bought plain white chucks and I told myself once these get dirty enough, I'm going to the paint them! So I did.


right shoe, side one.
It has Beatles - All My Loving lyrics on it, "Close your eyes and I'll kiss you, tomorrow I'll miss you, remember I'll always be true".


side two. I was running out ideas, and this was the last side I did.. so I just put words and filled it in with random swirlies.
Make, Burke(my last name), relax, imagine, create, live, laugh, and buttons(house nickname. Lips sealed)

 
left shoe, side one. Shutterbug Grin not too much going on here, you get it.


left shoe, side two. I didn't do this, my boyfriend did. I told him I wanted him to draw on my shoes and I got on the computer, and this is what he did. It's his last name. (:


fronts


backs! (: Notice the crochet hook..
I used puffy paint, paint sharpies, pens, and regular sharpies.

Sweet shoes! Just curios: did you do anything to protect/seal them?
btw, I've seen paint sharpies at Michael's.

nope, I'm not too worried about that kind of stuff. But I think people usually use that spray on sealant stuff.
