Before she left, I wanted to have Miss E be in charge of one of our Creative Girls Night Out.
She is so talented and stylish and crafty. You see, Miss E graduated in Architecture and has a lovely design business, as well as a blog where she documents all her fun projects.
She suggested something easy and fun and stylish--painting some canvas shoes like in this post here.
I love projects I can use, so I was on board. I emailed all the Creative Ladies and asked everyone to bring a pair of canvas shoes and any additional embellishments they wanted. Miss E and I rounded up some tape, supplies, and a variety of paint.
|All our shoes--blank canvases|
Miss E showed us how to tape off our shoes. That took some time, since you want to make sure your lines are going with the curve of the shoe.
|Be diligent in your taping|
The fabric does soak up the paint, so you need several layers for a nice saturated color. Bring a blow dryer if needed.
|My first layer painted!|
There are definitely some pretty colors out there in the world today!
|Look at that pretty pearly green!|
There were some who didn't do simple stripes. Some went for color-blocking.
|Gray and yellow...good combo|
|Yes, those are red sequins that have been Mod Podge-d on!|
This was also the perfect activity to sit around and talk and eat good food, so give it a try yourself--we had a blast!
