#PaintYourShoes Challenge

When Lorin from The Nuthouse Blog challenged me to paint my shoes , I knew I was in, it was happening.   I had these black and whites hanging around the studio for about a year. I was planning to make moss covered shoes to place in the Wee Wonderland secret garden, for the gnomes and fairies to live in, but since that was obviously delayed, I thought let's get these beauties painted. Hey, I can give them another life as a gnome home after this.

I striped the heals, inspired by BeetleJuice.
I painted roses, added splotches of color and used a lime green dot around the whole piece to make it feel more cohesive. 

 They certainly are unique. Perfect for a stroll in Manhattan.
Outlined in white, the flowers really came to life. That was really what helped bring the shoes to life.

Now where am I going to wear these? 
My friend Pam thinks they are magical and the response online has been fun . 

Now it's your turn to tag someone to #paintyourshoes. Don't forget to send me pics. 

Maybe we can send them around like Flat Stanley and make people take pictures wearing them . Potentially gross without socks. Ok, forget that idea.

With love and gratitude,


Find me partying here all week at these link parties with some great bloggers.

  1. Congratulations on the feature at Oh My Heartsie Girl! I saw these shoes in person. My Google ID Isn't working on the comment, so I'll just add my link. Kristie Schubert
