So I have seriously wanted to try stencilling, and since my sister loves the Jonas Brothers, I thought their logo would be great for my first try. I was inspired by a Craftster post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227938.0) by pinkpoodle230, and gave it a try using 3 seperate freezer paper stencils. I think it turned out well for a first try, and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts!

Ps- I altered the orignal a bit, since there were so many details, and I was getting frustrated with the stencil.

It looks great!!

I'm planning to try stenciling with freezer paper as well. Did you have any difficulty with you first try? Anything I should watch out for?

Well, I'll explain what I've learned from this project: I went to Michael's and bought acrylic paint and regular fabric paint, (although I'd reccomend fabric medium, because of it's versatility) and painted by stippling (up and down movements) in light layers with a sponge brush (which I bought a set of four for a dollar at a dollar store). I bought Reynold's freezer paper (the only brand that was available). I got the logo from a google search, and made it the size that I wanted, printed it out, and put the freezer paper (shiny side) down on the paper. I taped them both down on my rubber cutting mat, and cut out the black parts using an exacto knife. Next, I ironed the stencil (shiny side) down (again) onto the shirt, using the iron's no-steam setting. After the paint has dried, throw it inside out in the dryer, or iron it inside out to heat set it. I would reccommend a simple shape, since you have to remember that all the green parts inside of the logo were cut and ironed on separately. It's pretty easy, since you can peel off the freezer paper when you are done.
