i'm tickled pink. I've been saying for the past 2 years that i would get around to doing this but never bought the freezer paper (lamest. excuse. ever.)

My son (4) needed new tees for summer so i swore to myself i'd not spend crazy money on pre-printed stuff (i hate spending more than 3 bucks on kid's clothes anyway...clearance racks are my bestest friend) so i picked up shirts at michaels (i would have reused shirts he already had but they were all too small  Embarrassed ) and voila! hand sketched, exacto-cut acrylic painted goodness. and now i'm hooked and am hunting down more things to stencil....




(i probably could have hand painted that one, since i ended up hand painting the text anyway... eh well!)

the green shirt was my very first one- i messed up on pressing the paper to the shirt and it ended up coming away from the fabric, hence the bleeding on the "who," part

Love them!  Especially the sassy sayings.  Aren't freezer paper stencils awesome?  I'm an addict.  I just started using them with discharge paste to remove the color from shirts rather than adding ink.  It stinks, so work near a window or fan, but the results are fun.

i may nee to find better quality paints... the red shirt with black paint washed almost completely clean! :hmm i'm pretty sure i didn't mix up my bottle of acrylic with the bottle of black tempera.... lol.... i'm going to have to go back and hand paint over it.

I'm going to try freezer paper stenciling this weekend-once I finish my stupid final essay for English class..  Roll Eyes
Haha. I'm so glad my summer break begins next week!  Cool And yeah, the sassy sayings shirts are funny. I like anything that has a sassy saying on it.  Cheesy
