I used both of my son's silohuettes to create a stencil for this. Bleaching is FUN!!! Instant results. It's like magic.

Gorgeous! How did you apply the bleach? sponge or brush? and what kind of bleach, just normal household/thin stuff?

Thanks  Grin

actually i used a spray bottle. i found an old body spray i didn't want and replaced it with straight up household bleach. i think it will work best if the bottle sort of mists instead of spritzes if that makes any sense. then you won't get all of the splatter, unless that's the desired effect. just make sure to label the bottle afterward Cheesy bleach body spray could be bad in SOOO many different ways! THANK YOU GUYS~

That is really well done, and it's a nice composition... but can I be entirely honest and admit it creeps the hell out of me? lol

:DHaha! That's ok. I tend to like creepy things (except for men). I'm wondering what exactly gives it the creepy element. I started thinking yesterday that it sort of looks like a pair of lungs on my chest when I wear the shirt so I think I might complete the cirle around their heads so that it makes more sense visually. If I do I'll edit my post. Thanks for the input. If it leaves an impression that's better than nothing right?

I think it's awesome the way it is.  Although I do see how some might get a creepy vibe from it, I guess.

Eventually, I've got to start playing with bleach. Grin

No, it is obvious what it's supposed to be Smiley It's just that they're babies heads lol.  To you, they're your cute adorable bundles of joy, but to me they're anonymous baby heads lol.  Does that make sense?

I think maybe it's the eerie glow the heads have, like we're seeing babies in the womb. Or, that's just what I thought.  Roll Eyes

Nice stencil and shirt though. If your babies are anything like the shirt, they're cute!  Cheesy
