1  My first stencil was tri-color in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ringoatemybaby on: March 05, 2005 08:19:43 AM
My bulletin board had a design I'd painted on it when I was about 14, so it was a little dated until I put spray paint (and a little acrylic for the background) to it. This was so easy and came out pretty well, I think, for a first stenciling job. The letters were freehanded onto a folder with pastels and sliced out with my handy dandy exacto knife.

If you use too much black paint like I did when I tested it, it looks eerily like my ex-boyfriend. I'm not sure why. I ended up incorporating it into some artwork for his band. With normal amounts of black paint though, it looks nothing like him. I don't get it either.  Smiley

2  Hunter S. Thompson tribute t-shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ringoatemybaby on: March 04, 2005 10:41:42 PM
I LOVE Hunter S. Thompson's work. And the fact that he was a raving loony on top of that just makes me love him more.

Two days after his suicide I made this shirt...it's far from perfect, don't get me wrong. Especially the lettering...eek! But it's the first stencil I've ever done on a t-shirt, and I've already had half a dozen people ask me where to get them!! I'm hooking them up with free ones. Somebody wanting something I made makes me *glow.*  Smiley

3  Pretty Batik Lamp! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ringoatemybaby on: March 04, 2005 09:14:55 PM
I bought a cheap floor lamp from Target with plain white bulb covers (what in the world is that part called anyway??). I thought the starkness wouldn't bug me, but it seriously was only out of the box less than ten minutes before I got annoyed with how plain it was.

I used the crayon-batik method somebody posted before to make a big abstract drawing on butcher paper, then sliced it into strips and decoupaged it on the bulb covering. The pictures are kinda eh, but I'm excited about finally having a camera so I can share stuff with you guys anyway!  Grin




...and lit.
