I've been busy today!
I started off with making a Motion City Soundtrack t-shirt from an old shirt that I never wear. I even had a MCS par-tay and listened to all of their albums while working on it! Woo hoo!
Here's how it turned out:


(Yes, the shirt really is that obnoxiously bright. It's just not as orange as the picture portrays.)
I'm disappointed that the S bled, but other than that, I think it looks pretty cool! I was considering making bridges for the O's, D, R, & A, but a.) I'm lazy and b.) I liked the look of them all filled in like that.
The stencil I used is from The Stencilry's Motion City Soundtrack page. It was waaay too dorktastic for me to pass up! I've been drooling over it for a few weeks now. Cheesy


After I was done with that, I made this Muse logo shirt. The cutting was awesome and mindless, but placing straight on the shirt was an enormous pain in the behiney. I still think it looks crooked.


Once again, the letters bled. (What's up, freezer paper? I've never had this problem with you before!) I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so the bleeding is really getting to me. I do like the slightly faded look, though! I didn't want to load a lot of paint on there, because it always seems to end up cracking after a trip through the dryer.
The image I used was from a Google search, which I then enlarged.

What do you guys think?
