Sneakers and I make a good pair (Pun intended). I made another pair of sneakers, and I’m pretty impressed with the outcome.
I used Acrylic Fabric Paint and Martha Stewart Fabric Medium. I mixed 1/4 fabric medium to 3/4 paint.
To add the small drawings I used a white paint pen and drew small triangles in a spiral pattern on the sides and top of the sneakers.
I have to admit, I had no idea where I was going with these but now that I have figured out this type of design I am excited to try and make more with paint pen design accents on them.
Now I just keep asking myself, what other amazing sneakers can I create?
I like to take advantage of time when I am home and working on things, so usually I have several things going on at once. There is ALWAYS a TV show(lately I have been catching up on House) or a Radio Show(This American Life ALWAYS) Playing in the background. But why not listen to a radio show, make a fun new DIY AND Bake something? All those wasted minutes while a treat is baking in the oven can surely be used for some quality handcrafting time, right?! Well These pictures sum up how I used my time.
I made Gluten Free Rice Krispie & Chocolate Chex Marshmallow Treats using Dandies, my favorite Vegan marshmallow. Here is the recipe I used from Fettle Vegan. Instead I did 2 cups rice Krispie’s and 3 cups Chocolate Chex.I also made my favorite Gluten Free/Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe that never ceases to amaze me. I really like to slice it in thin bread-like slices and warm it with a little agave or butter on top….Yum! I also made a new pair of shoes using a pair of white sneakers, acrylic paint and a paint pen, it was time consuming but totally fun.I got the white sneakers at Target and they have elastic in them so you don’t need to have laces in them! Happy Friday!
