i don't know if i made up this technique or not. i can't find it anywhere but i'm also not an expert stenciller by any means. i used an index card, clear packing tape, and a craft punch to make a teeny tiny stencil. then i used it over and over and over to make different designs.

this is my favourite one by far. the whole design is done on the back-- it's supposed to look like a gunshot wound from far away but then when you look closer it's all made of different colour hearts.



here are a few of the other layouts i tried. all of them wrap around from the front to the back of the shirts



i'm totally in love with all my new shirts. i can't wait to go back to the dollar store and get a bunch of new hole punches.

comments/criticism appreciated!

Cool! I like your shirts, too. Grin  I'll have to try this sometime. I have way too many plain white t-shirts!

The white one with red hearts is my favorite. That must have taken forever, but it looks great!

I love the first one! It reminds me of the animated opening to "Casino Royale" Cheesy

Great Technique. I have never used that but it sounds very DIY. I love the hearts...who doesn't love hearts?

thanks everyone!!

that one actually took less than an hour... once i knew what i wanted to do. because each stencil repeat takes, like, one second, and then you can pick it up, wipe it off with a tissue (just in case there's any paint left on it), and reposition. Smiley

I love that gun shot wound look really cool. How do you make the shirts tho? glue paint???

not sure i understand the question... but the paint i used is one part textile medium, two parts acrylic paint
