This Atreyu shirt is the first thing I ever stenciled, and I'm still proud of it. It was made almost exactly four years ago, but I've just gotten onto craftster, so I'm showing off my back catalogue haha.  I printed the stencil on computer paper, cut out all the little pieces with the exacto, and *hand rolled scotch tape, placing it on all the surfaces of the back of the stencil*. If you can't imagine this process, trust me, it was tedious, especially on the back stencil, and I was quite grateful to discover spray adhesive after that.


if you're not familiar, the first font is supposed to look messy and old and destructed, i'm not just super bad at stenciling!! Wink

I'm not a fan of Atreyu really, but the quote makes me smile. Your process seems so HARD! Gosh. The quote on the front looks really good. <3
