Freezer paper stenciled shirt I made for a claim in the Ongoing Wish Swap.  As I was cutting the stencil my daughters friend was over and had no idea what Labyrinth was so I had to pull up Youtube to show her Jareth and the goblins singing!

It looks great! I really like the colors-how hard was it to get the color change to flow like that?

It was really easy.  I just painted the top part first in blue and used a little bit of extra paint then started with the purple at the bottom of BABE.  It pretty much just blended itself!  I used a sponge brush to just pull the paint downward which helped the blending.

Hope that makes sense!

Love this, Lindy. The way you did the color blending is really awesome. It adds a lot of depth to the project. I'm sure your partner was thrilled with it.

I certainly did, I loved (still love!) it so much. And I'm still thrilled with my shirt. The print holds up really well, too.

My shirt gets a lot of wear. My kid's... she insisted on taking it to daycare as her sports shirt, but they are usually running around in their underwear for that... I have to admit that my daughter (only three and a half now) still doesn't know the movie, only the soundtrack. And I still have to sing her the song whenever she sees me in the shirt, even one year later!
