By any chance, have you tried this with the freezer paper stencils and tried ironing a second layer on something already painted?  Have one that I think it going to require that and kind of concerned about what it will do to the other paint.

I love it!  Especially that you can stand it up when not in use!

Does this remind anyone else of Pretty In Pink?  I think even Molly would agree, so much better of a dress though!

Cute...especially the "process me..."  A few days ago, Kelly Ripa had a game "Gen-ius" or "SHEEN-ius"...so similar game!  I think she had paddles with maybe Einstein one one side and Charlie on the other.  So there's someone a next craft project.  :-)

You did a great job with the stencil, and I love the saying. I featured this project on Craftster's Facebook page today. Thanks for sharing.  Smiley

Thank you!  I really appreciate it.

I'm just now making it to the Office era (I'm on season 5 finally!) so this is still entirely hilarious to me! =D
Great craftsmanship too!

I will admit that I've still never seen an episode.   Shocked

Thats so great! You really did a great job...especially on those A's....any tips?

Tweezers and a steady hand!  I may, or may not have, printed off extra A's just to be able to neaten up the body of the A with cutting out the triangle and then cut out a second triangle piece (destroying the body of the 2nd A) to utilize for the stencil portion.  Does that make sense?  The main tip would be that it's not a friendly font for stenciling!  By then though, I'd already "made my bed."

As I said in my previous post ("Geek In The Pink...") this was done for a friend from high school.  This was actually the requested t-shirt that lead to the other.  I'm sure it's been done tons of times before by now but I actually think he used to use this phrase in high school which was long before "The Office" came out.  I saw one of these in an ad back in August though and told him I could make him one a lot cheaper and just as good.
If I'm remembering correctly, I used a pearl white soft paint on this one with a stencil that was a pain to cut out.  Font turned out nice, but not easy to deal with.  Ended up taking about an hour or so to do the cut outs for it in the end.  I remember having two white paints sitting there and I think I finally decided that the pearl would look prettier (even though it was for a guy).  I've already shipped them off to him so I can't look back at it.   Undecided
Thanks for looking!

A high school friend and I were talking about t-shirts and I volunteered to make him one.  That quickly turned into two when we were on the phone while I was shopping (AC Moore's $2 t-shirt sale) via phone and I found this pink.  He jumped all over the idea....as long as I was willing to come up with a design, make up the stencil, paint the shirt and eventually ship it to him.  All of which, I agreed to do.
I used a light pink soft paint with a freezer stencil.  It did take a couple of coats...but with working on two, I was able to switch back and forth.  I did learn - the hard way - that my little Tulip mini craft iron is NOT hot enough to iron freezer paper onto t-shirts.  Next time I will carry my heavier model.  (I had gone along with a friend to their office to utilize larger surfaces - thus the cubicle wall seen in the photo where I hung them to dry for the afternoon!)
Thanks for looking!

Love them, but especially the sepia tone.  So pretty with the little pops of color.
