Maybe try tie dying in the white area.  That could look cool!

now theres something I would totally do... I would do it in purple... but I bet another crazy color would look just great!....

I like how it is also...

I love the happy accident that is that shirt!! I would wear it every day!!!

HOWEVER.... I, too, have attempted this bleach stenciling and have failed miserably.  Perhaps it was that the squids tentacles were too narrow.... perhaps it was because I kept moving the shirt and therefore releasing the stencil from the fabric. I don't know. I'm not a craft-doctor.

Did you use straight bleach? Because I read somewhere that it should be 50/50 ... but I'd rather it be like what you did.

"2) If you're spraying something and the spray has gone out of control FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP SPRAYING. Spraying more to "fix it" is not going to work."

You're awesome.
