11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stickon Vinyl stenciling method on: May 23, 2007 03:28:01 PM
WONDERFUL stick-on vinyl--i got by rummmaging through trachcans at my daad's girlfriend's sign shop (they have yards and yars of it)

I just tape the threshholded image over the sheet of vinyl, then x-acto out  the negative spaces(like cardstock stencil making).

After that, you peel off the negative space and  stic it on to the garment/thing you'r stneicling, making sure not to stretch it out or get wrinkles.

Then paint, it wait for it to dry, and there is no bleeding!! ever!! yay!!
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 2 new shirts--LOST and dressform/hoopskirt thing on: May 23, 2007 02:57:35 PM
I stenciled these using WONDERFUL stick-on vinyl--i got by rummmaging through trachcans at my daad's girlfriend's sign shop (they have yards and yars of it)

So the shirts are...


I modified the dharma logo and freehanded the stencil of the scissors (thats why they loook so wierd, i can't draw.)


Station 6:the Craftiness (season finale comes on tonite btw...)



And i found a relly cool image of a dressform thing with a hoopskirt attachment. i ccouldn't find any fabric paint at the moment, so i used regular acrylic without heat setting it  Roll Eyes . my mom put it in the washer before i could get hold of it and it came out in a GORGEOUS vintage wash-not all rough and crinkly. thanks mom.



the shirt is realy wrinkly here, sorry


Any questions, commets about my projects or technique are welcome. (Commets? i mean comments. Well comets are welcome too, just as long as they don't hit my house)

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Asymetrical grey wool+lime green winter coat NOW WITH TUTE on: May 23, 2007 02:35:59 PM
So its the heat of summer here in florida and no better time to post a  heavy winter coat i made this year for spring break (We went to Italy and it snowed. it was cold.) But the jacket held up reallly well. I prety much lived in it for the whoe week and a half.

Anyway I got the grey wool from a friend of a friend, she had washed it once so it sort of felted. Im not sure if you can tell from the pictures but the colors really pop. I was originally going to use a zipper for cllosure, but i decieded i liked the silvery star buttons better. Plus the zippper make it all bumply and unattractive. I made the sleeves extra long because idon't wear gloves,  but I can also cuff them and show of the limyness if i want to. Enough of me talking. Pics!!





detail of button (i made it kind of like frogs with tightly braided embroidery thread)


(the last link works now)

And now, TUTORIAL........... .



Youll need to add 1" for seam allowancesto all your measuremnets, plus an extra half inch for every dotted line the measurement crosses.

Cut out 1 of everything in outer fabric and 1 in the lining material. Sew the lining pieces to the outer fabric pieces and press accordingly, then turn inside out.

Sew the sides of the back and fronts, then the top (shoulder?) pieces. You should have a vest/sleeveless shape.

Now set in the sleeves (this may take a little wrestling if youre working with bulky fabrics)

You may want to press open the lapels, but i found that they stayed flipped over on their own. Just add buttons (or other closures) and you're ready to brave the cold!

Comments, q's always welcome!!
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / TREASURE map ATC's on: January 22, 2007 03:42:30 PM
So every year at my church we make treasure maps. For those of you unaware of this concept, it is magazine clippings etc of all the things you want in your life for the following year. The whole point is that you hang it somewhere that you'll see it often, and it will enter your conciousness, therefore manifest into your life. Well, i was thinking "If only there was a smaller treasure map that I could carry around with me......." and so these TREASURE MAP ATC'S  were born>>>>>>

part I


part II


part III


part IV


You may have noticed that some of the words/images were cut off. That's because........

They all fit together!!

So I intend to keep 1 in my wallet everyday, possibly rotating through each one.
Comments, questions always appreciated. I'm not sure if this is the right board, but I'm just posting them here.
16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / SNOW PATROL final straw jacket on: January 13, 2007 02:08:59 PM
I got this jacket from target for my birthday and thought it was somewhat bland, so I scanned the cover art for Final Straw and printed it out on cardstock. It didn't take any adjustng in Photoshop since it was already a stencil. The people are about 6" tall.It took 2 episodes of Lost to exacto out all the spaces. (my thumb is still mildly sore). So here are the pictures! The color in the second one is truer.

17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 3 Tshirt Xmas presents done!! (camera, om, cow, reconnect) on: November 26, 2006 09:37:24 AM
THis shirt is for my dad the photographer (michaelg). It is the first camera he ever used. I used plain acrylic and it was very hard to work with. That's why the color isn't uniform, but I kind of like it.



And for my sort of uncle (he teaches yoga) I have fallen in love with the paint I used on it (SoSoft SIlver Platinum), It went on easily and spread without bleeding. And as the name would suggest, it is also very soft. ANyway, here it is.



For my friend hannah, she loves cows, so I stenciled one on the pocket of a sweatshirt from the thrift store. Acrylic, but it went on pretty easily. Originally, I tried to fit the whole design on the pocket, but now I really like how the tail goes off on the rest of the sweatshirt.The picture isn't stunning, but the color of paint is really brilliant.



My mom just got trained to be an energy healer (reconnection) and she has been getting   results from almost everyone she practices on. She's relly excited about it, so i mdae her this. I used the same color of SoSoft as on the om shirt.



Comments, question always appreciated!  Grin

Gah. i hate school. It has kept me so busy that I haven't had any time to post. This I made a while back. I took a men's shirt from the thrift store (loved the colors), my aunt's old pillowcase, and some black jersey from JoAnNs and came up w// this>>>>>



It has the tendency to sort of fly open in the wind which can be a bummer when you're carrying things, but I'll fix it. I love it anyway! Telll me what yall think.....

This, as you can see, is my first stencil. I used Death Cab For Cody's awesome tute posted in this board. I used cardstock on a plain white T. Its a little messy around the edges, but oh well. Comments always appreciated  Grin
