For about a year my friends and I have been stencilling t-shirts.
These are pretty much all of the ones I/we've done. Minus a few that I didn't take pictures of and such.

My very first one!


Muse = <3


Yearbook staff! Represent!






My friend, Jessica's, first shirt.


For Jess' boyfriend.




For a friend who liked to show off his "guns"


By my boyfriend for his sister






For my boyfriend.




The story behind these is that I had two very white, northerner, awesome yearbook teachers last year (along with one teacher who didn't have a class during our yearbook class and always hung out with us) who all enjoyed trying to be "gangstas" I go to an "inner city" school, so it was really quite funny. One of their favorite phrases was "Drop Buy it like it's hot" referring to the yearbook.
























My boyfriend has taken to making them and made a ton that I don't have pictures of. I'll have to break out a camera next time I'm at his house and make him model for me.
We've also both started teaching other friends and had little t-shirt parties where, of course, I didn't have a camera.

<3 Karen!

As a yearbook staff member myself, all I can say is: YAAH! Now that's the way to advertise! Great shirts!

Most of the stencils I found online at random stencil websites. You trace it onto freezer paper and then cut out the stencil then iron it onto the shirt. As far as paint goes, I used a mixture of acrylic paint and fabric medium. There are some really good tutorials online, the most helpful might be this one: http://www.livejournal.com/community/diy_tutorials/60999.html#cutid1.

I've only recently discovered the joy of fabric markers, although they don't show up on dark shirts, it allows for a lot more detail. But I don't have any pictures of ones we've used them on. I wish I had a picture of my friend's shirt. It says "Oh Yeah!" in big red letters then an awesome drawing of the KoolAid man eating his friend (my boyfriend) complete with an arrow pointing to him that says "Jon" and a cage of children off to the side. It's just so unexpected and awesome.

Thanks for all the compliments!
