I found this black hoodie in the free area of my apartment complex and decided to use it to experiment with stenciling. It was free after all, so why not? I think it turned out alright, if not amateur-looking, but what the heck. (Photography is my mom getting artsy.)

Looks great especially for your first stencil and what better way to start than with a free shirt!

thats so funny! and definitely doesnt look amateur. I agree with nyxxie, if that's your first stencil, you're doing really well!

I was lacking for supplies, but impatiently wanted to try stenciling RIGHT THEN. So I used some card stock for the stencil and cut the corner off of a sponge to apply the paint.
