- A comic book (you don't mind parting with)
- Modge Podge
- Paint brush
- Pair of shoes -the smoother the surface texture, the easier things should stick with the Modge Podge.
I started with pieces that had been cut to create a base layer on the shoe. The straight edges made them easier to line the top and bottom edges of the shoe with. After the base layer was done, I went back with torn images (that I wanted to feature) to create a better collage-like effect. I feel like the torn edges make a better final appearance -but personal preference.
Don't be afraid of getting messy here. I found that using my fingers to coax the pieces over some of the curves helped them to stay in place. I also made a point of working around the shoe and overlapping paper pieces as I went to help secure them in place.
If you had a tough time getting a nice edge around the top of the shoe, don't be afraid to create a thin border using a dark-colored sharpie marker.
