While on vacation in Florida, I watched artists hand-paint canvas Toms slip-ons. Although I do not have a pair of Toms, I do have two pairs of casual and comfy summer slip-ons that I purchased on sale. [Keds and Grasshopper brands] They were pretty boring as shoes go but oh so comfortable. Feeling whimsical, I decided to paint them.
For the denim set on the left I traced star designs and filled in the outlines with white acrylic craft pain. For the white set, I tried an all-over design of small cherries for a Door County theme. To help set the design I sprayed both sets with a silicon water-proofing spray. Summer fun!
