So if you are like me, wearing black is pretty much an everyday occurrence. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE color, but black is classic and it goes with everything which makes getting ready in the morning so much easier.One way I counterbalance my day to day outfits, so that I don’t constantly look like I am heading to a funeral or some underground goth party, is to add a pop of color or pattern with the shoes I choose to wear.
Usually I search for more bold and bright shoes so that they really stand out from the otherwise monochromatic outfit, but if truth be told I can be seen in head to toe black quite often as well.
So next time you are out and about shoe shopping, try opting for the colorful or more daring choice 🙂

Materials You Will Need:
- A pair of canvas shoes
- Painter’s tape
- Acrylic paints
- Paint brushes
Tape off the toe and front edge of each shoe to ensure paint does not go anywhere that it is not wanted.
Paint a base color in the taped off area. It can be any color, as it will serve as the background for everything else you paint. You will want to paint two or three coats of your base color to ensure complete coverage.
Remove painter’s tape. Let base coats dry completely before next step.
Choose an animal or person’s face that you’d like to adorn the front of your shoes with. I chose a wolf/fox/coyote type animal.
Start with painting the front silhouette shape of your chosen animal or person (see above).
After the silhouette has completely dried, you will add in the facial details (eyes, ears, nose, mouth, etc.). Remember to let each layer of paint dry.
Happy creating! 🙂 If you have any questions or troubleshooting, please let me know. Thanks for viewing.
