I’ve been hit with the leopard print craze. I want it all and I want it everywhere – pants, scarves, and especially shoes. If you didn’t know yet, I’m particularly picky when it comes to picking out the correct print (yes, there are several leopard styles). After making one too many online shopping carts and never committing, I decided the best way to get the pattern I want is to do it myself, at least for now.

* Acrylic paint and allow to dry before applying black
