After seeing all this neat stuff you all are making, I wanted to try a stencil. So I remembered these awesome Blondie t shirts I seen at Hot Topic and thought what the crap? I'll try it out!
Stenciling isn't that hard, but it does take time and patience. I went digging through my closet and found an old pink t shirt that I tried to bleach at one time(you can still see some dots on it from where i used a spray bottle and bleach. didn't work that great for being such a dark shirt). I also had some black spray paint, and thought that maybe it'd work on a shirt. I'm actually pretty proud of my first stenciling.

The letters are a little messed up, but its okay. I got a lot of complements the other day.
What do you all think?

Thanks all!

I used regular spray paint. It didn't say anything on the back of the can to not use it on fabric. So I took my chances, and after it has been both washed and dried, the paint stayed on the shirt!
