Oooh, I want to make these with my Pre-K kids.
I'm sure the parents would love them!

Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome, if you do it with the kids post some pics of what the shirts look like, I'd love to see them. I plan on doing this with my son soon, this was kind of a test run, also considering doing it on ty-dye ^.^

So I had the phrase stuck in my head today of "Paint Happens" because I'm constantly covered, especially my jeans and hands. So I decided to do something fun and creative with it. I saw shirts that said similar things going online for $25 - $30 and why on earth would I do that? I mean I'm an artist and a crafty person so.... I made it myself. Cheesy


Supplies Needed:
Parchment Paper
Letter Stencils/template (optional, I didn't use them)
Fabric Paint/Acrylic Paint
Paint Brush (optional)
Plain t shirt of whatever color you want, I chose white purchased mine at hobby lobby for around $4.
Cardboard or plastic is helpful for putting between the layers of the shirt so there isn't bleed through, in a pinch you could probably layer parchment paper between too. I used a piece of plexi glass I had laying around from an old frame.

Put the cardboard or whatever you've chosen to separate the layers of the shirt, in the shirt. On parchment paper freehand your pallet design (or trace over a template you place under the paper) facing it the opposite direction you want it to be on the shirt, add paint smears and if you want to mix colors together use a brush or your finger, or whatever you have handy to make it look like a well used pallet. Flip it over onto the shirt and press down firmly then peel away.
Do the same thing for the paint brush (I chose to do this while the other design was still wet but you dont have to do it that way if you want it to be more distinct)
And for the letters do the same as above(remember to write backwards) or use a stencil to spell out your phrase.
Let dry, and wear. Mine is still in the drying process or I'd post a pic of me in it ^.^

I figure this way, when I get paint on me it will just go along with the shirt, or I may splatter it a little just for effect.

Note: Jeans were done by splattering fabric paint on them with the help of the wind, then mushing the front side together then flipping them over and repeating the process. They were then hung up to dry. I've gotten lots of compliments today while out and about Cheesy

You really do water beautifully - I'm very impressed.

Thank you so much!  ^.^ I try hard on it. I remember it used to be the thing that I was worst at so I've invested a lot of time and practice to make it look good. I'm glad its finally working out Cheesy

This isn't how I intended for it to look when I started painting, it just sort of showed up on the canvas.


This was done by request, or rather I was told "Paint me an original and include a cherry blossom tree" this is what I came up with.


More practice, was gifted to a family friend.


My first attempt at mountains


Monochrome fun. I really like this one.
