I just bought 3 pairs of fake cheap converses, one in pink others in black.

I got a black dylon fabric pen and drew stars all over the pink ones.
I got a bleach pen and wrote all over a black pair (the writing goes white)
I got liliac, pink, and baby blue paint and an old toothbrush and flicked paint all over a black pair.

I found this while googling for bleach pens

Instead of buying bleach pens, dip a Q-tip in bleach and apply it to the spot. It worked for me

so i embroidered this bird on the other day.

the black ink dot is the eye.

i call it dragonbird because when i zip up the hood all the way
it kind of looks like a weird dragon



sorry my photoshop color correcting skills apparently suck!
wow. i'm impressed. that is REALLY REALLY nice. i'm jealous. i want a weird dragonbird. heh.

<3 me.

loove the beads softgrey - and I recognise the top you are wearing.

I have never seen a bleach pen either - it sound interesting though.
