I got really inspired by some of the bleached stuff I have seen here on Crafter especially emlee_bee http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=201691.msg2146348#msg2146348
Unfortunately I can't find any kind of bleach pen here in Sweden, so I have dipped an old felt-tip pen in chlorine, since my various tries with spraying bleach on the fabric have been disastrous.
I hope I can inspire you in any way.


I stole this stencil from this page: http://triciawang.vox.com/library/posts/tags/san+francisco/

It is first bleached and then stenciled with fabric paint. Do you think I should ad the flower or not?

gorgeous work! love the tonings you have captured.
You can buy a water brush pen that can be filled with bleach from scrapbook shops here in australia so maybe try a scrapbooking supplies shop. i think using good paint brushes would work too.
inspiring work!
