These Boots Were Made for Walkin'

Hello All,

Here is an easy way to make any old pair of shoes or boots you have on hand into a unique statement that is all your own!

I loved these boots but wanted them to go with my style a bit more. I was looking online a saw some shoes with an amazing print and I thought, "Hey I can easily do something similar with nothing but a couple of sharpie pens!"

Below is the process in photos:

As you can see above, I used two sizes of sharpie pens (have two pens of each size on hand in case one runs out of ink) and one color, black (is there any other color? Hehe). You can use what ever colors or motifs fit your personal style. My only suggestion is that you use permanent marking pens. If you are afraid of making mistakes, you can draw out your motif lightly with a washable marker before putting down the permanent ink. 

 This entire project took about 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete. 
Here are my new boots!

Thanks for reading!
