A Fun Summer Craft: Painted Shoes

Painted shoes are a  summer craft that’s fun for all ages. This is what you need: your favorite kids, a pair of white canvas shoes, black extra fine tip sharpie makers and regular sharpie markers in lots and lots of colors. If you want to go the extra mile have some music playing and plenty of otter pops and ice cream.

Painted Shoes! This would be such a fun thing to do with my kids and their cousins this summer-myflowerjournalSince I wanted flowers to be the focal point on my shoes I drew those on first with an extra fine black sharpie. You could use a pencil first then go over it with the sharpie. Then I started to add my background designs zentangle style. You can learn all about zentangle and find lots of design ideas on the internet. I really like these two books: Zenspirations and Zentangle 2. The first one even has some fun flower designs.Zenspirations use for painted shoes-myflowerjournal.com

 This project can take a while.  If your slow like me you may not have time to fill both shoes with designs so start at the front and work back. Do a little on each shoe instead of trying to finish one shoe before you start on the second one. After your happy with your design you can add all the color you want!Ideas for flower art on white canvas shoes a fun summer craft for all ages-myflowerjournal.com
