Step-by-step photo guide
What you'll need:
1. Shoes! I've chosen white converse sneakers, but any version that is light colored canvas will do!
2. POSCA paint markers
I chose gold, but they come in a huge variety of colors...so choose a color you love and be you!
These quick dry acrylic paint markers are water-based, odorless, and can be rinsed when wet. Once dry, it becomes water-resistant!
3. (Optional)...your trusty sidekick!
4. Scrap paper
It's important to make sure the markers are flowing nicely on your scarp paper before you get started.
Once the ink is flowing, I recommend trying out the markers in a discreet spot.
Then, wait for it to dry and make sure you’re happy with them.
If all looks good, then start decorating!!
Try not to get distracted by cuteness...
I chose to do two different flowers, one for each shoe.
and a peony!
It dries very quickly, and just like that- all done!
Here's the finished product:
