I still make things. All the time. I just forget to take pictures of them. Or forget to blog about them. Or can’t find my camera so I can’t post about them.
Inspired by Dana’s yellow shoes I decided to paint a cheapo pair from Payless that I never wear. They were red and although that’s my favorite color, they were the wrong shade of red to wear with much.
So it was off to McGuckins to buy a can of apple green spray paint.
Three coats later and I had some fun green shoes just shy of neon – which I guess goes with the 80s revival we’re in the midst of.
Only problem was, as Dana mentioned in her post, cracking. She said there were just a few cracks in her shoes and that they added character. Well, after walking the mile to work and mile home on day one, let’s say my shoes were character-rich…
Into the trash they went. So what’s a girl with a nearly-full can of apple green spray paint to do?
I grabbed another pair of shoes, of course.
They used to be pale pink, but had gotten kinda dirty over a year of wear.
But since they were cloth, I knew they’d soak that paint right up.
And I was right.
