Hey guys!

I decided to try my hand at stenciling, and was playing with a tote bag and some fabric paints and came up with this:

The first images I stenciled (the electricity poles and the rocket) I didn't use spray adhesive to stick the stencils down, so they look really messy :[
The jellyfish is metallic purple Cheesy

erm... ignore the shadows of words... they're actually screened on the otherside, and i just flipped the tote inside out, since I didn't want to have to deal with trying to cover/remove the images.

I'm not quite sure if I'm ENTIRELY satisfied with how it looks so far, or if I want to add some stenciled words to the right side (vertically, down the side of the bag? or horozontally along the bottom?).

Any opinions? Do you think I should add some words or just leave it as is? If so, what should I write?
Thanks XP

it is stellar the way it is.
however, if you did want to add words, you could do them along the bottom.
if you listen to MGMT, i immediately thought of their song "electric feel"...
i would suggest "this is what the world is for. making electricity".
or "she got the power in her hand, to shock you like you wont believe".

but that is just a suggestion---the stenciling is really good.
