While my fiance was still in the Navy and we were just dating, I was traveling down to visit him in VA every few months for a couple of weeks at a time.  Since I didn't want his roommates to start resenting my frequent house invasions, I started bringing them gifts each time I came.  I looked at it as a way of saying, "Thanks for putting up with me" Grin  This was a tee I made for Jason, his roommate that had/has an obsession with teenage girls.  Dirty old Sailor, I know.



I used the good old freezer paper stencil method for my technique and used several coats of each paint color.  The red was the most troublesome paint, since it took MANY coats until it appeared opaque but I was happy with the finished project.

 Grin  Could there be a better compliment?!?  Thanks!  I've been making them for a few years now because I refuse to spend $35 everytime I want a quirky shirt (you know the ones you're not sure you'll wear a lot but are hilarious?).  Once you've acquired your basic supplies (freezer paper, craft knife, and if you don't have one, a printer), you can usually make one for around $5. 

hello fianc's friend.  Wink  haha that shirt is hilarious... i can't ever get freezer paper to work.  it is always curled up, and i can't print on it because it jams in the printer.

I had some trouble with this in the beginning too (along with many other pit falls!).    What I normally do is place the paper over the side of my desk, wax side up, while holding an end in each hand and slide the paper back and forth a few times to reverse the curl.  My printer still sometimes has trouble feeding the paper in straight, so as an added precaution against jams I'll hold the paper lightly as a guide just until it catches and straightens out.  Hope that helps!

Since freezer paper is slightly translucent i just print on normal paper and trace my image.
