I made this beauty a few weeks ago and just got around to taking the pics!!

WHAT I USED

1. Dogwood stencil from www.stencilry.org

2. Dollar store paint roller (which is starting to show it's cheapness!)

3. Tulip Soft Paint in Azalea and Granny Smith (I adore this paint and wish I could find more colours!!)

WHAT I DID

1. Made my stencil from good ol' printer paper and clear packing tape

2. Cut the thing out

3.  Painted the design on. I know I should have secured the stencil down but I was in a hurry and just held it down while I painted, which was very tricky and I don't really recommend doing it this way!

And that is pretty much it! This was the first time I had used 2 colours for one stencil ( I don't know if this qualifies for a multi-layer stencil, but I assume it was similar) and I think it turn out ok! The tee is a boys t-shirt and the sleeves are too long and the neck needs to be a v-neck so I will probably take some scissors to it and modify it to my liking! Enough of the chatting here's the pics!!

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE









Thanks for looking!!

Turned out very nice, and I like the positioning of it. That is what makes it most unique and attractive.  Smiley
