I've always been a huge Beatles Maniac. I've had the Beatles on the brain an awful lot lately.  I was in the recent Beatles Swap and now with the new Beatles Rock Band game coming out, the Beatles are everywhere.  There are documentaries. movies and video clips on VH1.  THe Beatles are all over the news too.

So anyway....I've had this image for awhile.  Been waiting for the right thing to do with it.   Someone else in the Beatles Swap had this image too and used it for a project.  So I got inspired to do something too!

This is what I came up with:  I found this jacket at the thrift store for $7.50.  Schweet!  Looks like it got washed with something red because it has that slightly pinkish tinge to it.  But I like it.  I cut the stencil out of freezer paper, ironed it on and the results:

Here's the work in progess!

The big reveal!

Gotta love those freezer paper stencils!   Cool

I LOVE it! Amazing stencil, having gotten into this myself I know that they can be tough.

That reminds me I need to drag the other half to get my Beatles Rock Band. Wink
