star moss all stars


This weekend I gave my tired old pair of Chucks a makeover that's decidedly "me".


These shoes are nice and comfy, and still in good shape, but no longer come clean after washing.  With these grey winter days I've had enough of dingy white so I got out my acrylics and some fabric medium and got to work.


A bright green suits me fine.


At coffee break time I admired my green nails.  Nice.


To finish off my kicks, I added some star moss to the heels and just like that I had a new pair of shoes.  They're sure to be one of a kind, and already worn in, bonus.


I kind of love them.


How are you bringing some green into your day today?

Very cool! I think that after you design your line of children's clothes you should add a shoe line!

I kind of love them too! Very creative. This would be a good idea for shoes that get handed down to siblings or in the case of my grandbabies, cousins. It's almost like getting a new pair of shoes!!

Funny you should ask but I made something green for myself and blogged about it today.

Very swank ^_^ I miss my old Chucks I always did the low cuts not the highs. My one sister has them in neon pink and orange they are fuuuuunky. These kinda remind me of that line of Keds that had all sorts of fun animal prints all over them.

"all the other kids with the pumped up kicks better run, better run...."

What?!? Paint on canvas shoes? You are creative to the max, girlfriend. Sort of opens up a whole new world for me.

We're a hightop family. Better support for construction work and climbing around. Love your paint job!
Today, I went outside in the unseasonably warm weather and photo'd the green daffodils about to bud.
