Morning everyone! After talking about it for quite a while Valerie and I have decided to make Sneaker Sunday a fortnightly thing (every second week for the Americans reading 😉 ) We decided to post about it less so we have more time to come up with awesome tutorials and fun things for you guys!
Let’s make this…
Pretty cute right?Well what you need is this:
So you need to find something that inspires you for the design. I’m using a piece of sticky leopard fabric from The Sticker Monster.
So first thing’s first, take the laces out 😀
Practice drawing your design on a piece of paper before you do it on the shoes.
I’m doing leopard print so I started by drawing the inside blobs in light purple.
Make sure to make them odd sizes, if they are all completely even it will look very unnatural. Pastel pink and purple leopard print is of course very natural 😉
Add in a pink background around the blobs.
Then add a dark purple border around the blobs. The border should be broken up and rough. Like this:
Finished the back part 😀 Now the front. I decided to draw a swirly ribbon that ends in a heart. You should draw your picture in the lightest colour you have, I used light pink for the heart and light purple for the ribbon.
I then outlined in a darker pink/purple.
Lastly I added shading with a very dark colour. Shadows are very important in giving simple designs like this depth ^_^
I found a white paint pen laying around so I used it to add a couple of highlights. to the ribbon. I also added some small dots around the ribbon.
And you’re done!
Nice and simple and it doesn’t take long at all!
I am quite pleased with the end result! I also love the idea that for $10 I can have sneakers that look like anything that I can pull out of my imagination 😀
Time to take them for a spin!
I hope you are all having an awesome Sneaker Sunday and if you want to see what Valerie did with her sneakers just head over to her blog and check it out!
