Many of the more experienced stencilers may have already discovered this, but I've found that patterns for stained glass can make great stencils. This tshirt was for a swap partner that likes dragonflies and does stained glass (hence the inspiration). I used clear contact paper for the stencils and wound up with three seperate ones to get all the pieces. The paint is just regular acrylic with textile medium added. The hunt is now on for more stained glass patterns! Smiley

There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality.  There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury.  And then there's the dark side.
