second present for my sis. i also tailored the shirt- they only had children's sizes left at michaels, and it was awkwardly wide.

based on a banksy graffiti stencil that she told me she liked.



spots on the neck are stain remover- i wore it to size it and i have trouble not getting foundation on the necks of shirts. sigh.

feedback welcome.

Beautiful job on the stencilling.  I really like the shirt colour you picked as well... it looks like the balloon is flying away into a blue blue sky. Smiley

Great job, your lines came out so clean. What method did you use?
Also, beautiful choice of stencil.

i used contact paper- it worked really well here, and really crappy in the other stencil i made with it that day. generally, i clean up my lines afterwards with paint applied using a straight pin or a sharpened pencil. also helpful for adding detail that couldn't be captured with the stencil.

If people could put rainbows in zoos they'd do it.
