Hey, all. Cheesy I can finally post this because my partner has received! Cheesy

First up is a shirt for the shirt swap:

(this image grabbed from the swap gallery because I didn't get a decent pic of the front of the shirt)

The idea really began with this part which was copied from a stamp design my partner had pinned. This was my first time working with freezer paper and I loved how I was able to make a really long design and it was sooo much easier to work with than sticker paper. I am so sad that I can't find freezer paper here, but am glad that craftsters have sent me freezer paper in swaps. I played around with the stamp design and left only two hearts on it so that it would stick with the DW theme.


Added the TARDIS after. Than I ambitiously decided that I had to have some Gallifreyan on it. After a long afternoon of tracing and cutting and painting, I had this on the back of my shirt:

I decided to go with the white parts because it looked like that would be easier to stencil. Of course, I wasn't staring at the image when I was sticking some of the inner islands on, and I got some of them placed differently. Oh well. This is the first time I've done a really intricate (and small-ish) stencil and I'm pretty chuffed with how it came out.

Then I decided to make my own shirt using the same Gallifreyan design. I put it in the back, but at a larger scale because I decided to actually paint the lines. I like to think of it as my geeky Gallifreyan tramp stamp shirt. Cheesy


Here's a really bad pic (taking pics of your own back is freaking hard!) to show  how it looks on:


Here's an in-progress shot with the freezer stencil in place:

I think I must have been slightly insane to take this on. They were all little islands! I did it circle by circle, ironing pieces on as I was cutting them because I would have mixed those pieces up if I hadn't. And those pieces were crazy small.

And a final picture of the finished design:


All in all, I'm glad that I got to see how crazy I could get with stencils and I love both shirts so much.

The second one is amazing. I love the design of it: did you work out the symbols for yourself or is it a design from elsewhere?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

It's an image floating around the net. It's from the Doctor's cot (but I'm not sure if it's really stated in canon that it's the Doctor's name in Gallifreyan, but still it's pretty) Here's a link to the image: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lmcdqpvXjI1qej09uo1_1280.jpg

Those are so great! I can't even imagine how long it took to cut all of that out. I certainly don't have that much patience!

Thanks! I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't fixated on the idea. Cutting the stencil actually took me two afternoons, but I did find out that the freezer paper can take being removed and moved around and left overnight, so that definitely helped.
