DIY Painted leopard print shoes, hand painted canvas shoes


A friend asked if I could paint a pair of shoes in a leopard print, similar to
a popular name brand shoe. This favor involved 2 of my favorite things 
painting and animal print...I'm in!

She asked for browns, tans and a touch of blue.
I used my block painting technique to get this layered
paint finish. I shipped them directly to her friend for a 
birthday gift.
