I recently did two shirts for the Hunger Games swap. These were done using a freezer paper stencil and a bleach pen. I actually cut the stencil out of the freezer paper with my cricut. (I highly recommend!) I had done a lot of bleach and freezer paper stencils before, but never with a bleach pen. The first shirt was a prototype to see how it looked:

The second one I actually sent to my partner. I wanted it to look like it got splattered with acid to go with the theme. Front:

I liked the bleach pen for the stencils, but if I did it again, I would use my spray bottle for the splatters on the second shirt. Oh well, live and learn! Smiley
