Day 3 Of "Spray Paint Week" {Shoes}

I have dabbled in spray painting shoes before, but never have they turned out so wonderful as these!! I owe it all to my good friend Duck Tape. Being lazy and all, in the past I had always painted the whole shoe. I could never figure out what it was I didn't like about them (I know "duh!" right?) This time....
I put duck tape around the whole sole of the shoe. I honestly didn't think it would work nearly as well as it did.
So basically I just took strips of duck tape and pressed it with my finger as close to the leather as I could. I don't even think I made much of a straight line but because I was painting a dark color over an already dark shoe... it turned out pretty sweet!

Averi loves them. And so does Gnomer the gnome.
If your wondering about the leggings, I made them out of an old t shirt. Once again I was inspired by Shakespeare's Stage. As for the skirt, a tutorial on that is coming soon. It belongs to big sister actually, but I thought it went well with the shoes :)

Those. Are. Awesome! AWESOME! Wow. Very cool. And the use of duck tape? So so brilliant. I spray painted some shoes black a month or so ago and I got some of it on the soles. I need to sand them off or something. They're all sticky. If only I had thought of the tape....

I love the color of these and the pictures look great, too. Great job!
(and yay! for linking up to a party!)
