    Step 2

    My shoes were white so I took the dark blue paint and sponged it onto the shoes.

    -I finished one shoe completely before doing the other

    Step 3

    Start sponging white, pink, and light blue onto your shoes, if you don't like the way it looks, let it dry and go over it with the dark blue and start again.

    -I did light blue first in some spots, and white first in some spots, then used a drop of the next color and sponged on top of it.

    Step 4

    Add specks of paint to the shoe with an old toothbrush to make stars :)

    -In order to get the swirl line, I took light blue and starting in the middle, gently brushed the line, then added a little bit of the dark blue and lined the sides of it with white on top of pink.

Totally in love with this! I imagine this won't work as well with black cons though, right?

Actually, it will! Just use a lighter blue Happy It won't be AS bright, but it still works. I did it o a black tshirt. You'll have to go over it a few times to get the desired color though <3

The only thing I did for the stars was dipped my toothbrush bristles in the white paint and rubbed my thumb over them haha. It makes very cool designs Happy
