1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Murder By Death on: January 31, 2007 06:50:36 PM
I took the image from stencilry.  This is the first time I used the extremely DIY Silkscreen "screen in an embroidery hoop with mod podge as block" technique...  I'm pretty happy with the results.  By the hands a big chunk didn't really screen as clean as I wanted it too- but I think that it adds to the affect...  or, at least that's what I tell myself.

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dawn of the Dead bleach stencil on: June 12, 2006 12:58:14 PM
Yeah- this is exactly what the topic says it is.  A Dawn of the Dead bleach stencil.  Simple.  It is on a t-shirt that I made for my boyfriend.  hmm....  tell me what you think.  Sorry about the huge picture.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / simple tube top with side panels. on: January 08, 2006 09:19:00 PM
Okay, this is really simple, but I like it and I rarely post any of my own projects- so I thought that I would share...  And the photos are pretty big too...  Sorry 'bout that...

This one is a little blurry, but it's the only one that I have of me wearing it.

And here is a close up of the logo.  This was originally on a tiny tee-shirt that I bought at the museum.

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Air- The Virgin Suicides on: October 30, 2005 02:54:14 PM
I made this a long time ago.  It's on a hoodie.  The image is from the cover of Air's Virgin Suicides album.  I modified it a bit so that it was easier to print.

Umm...  that's all.  Tell me what you think.


5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / V-Day (and the Vagina Monologues) on: October 17, 2005 05:56:56 PM
We're doing the Vagina Monologues at my school and I was wondering if anyone has any appropriate craft ideas.  We're already painting our own "Love Your Body" tee-shirts this week, but I'm trying to come up with something more creative than that!

Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!

Also, I realize that I'm probably not going to get a response for this until it gets closer to Feburary, but I figured that I'd post it now so that I don't forget!
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Evil Girl Scout/Girl Guide!!! on: October 09, 2005 05:53:22 PM
(X posted on "Glasses" thread)

Well, I was trying to come up with a costume that didn't matter if I had glasses or not.  I finally thought of something today!  I'm going to be a Girl Scout!  I was one for 13 years (kindergarten through 12th grade) and thought that it would be funny.  But see, I don't want to be a regular Girl Scout.  I want to be an evil Girl Scout!  I'm going to wear black and red and make a black sash with red patches!  I still need to think of ideas for the evil badges though- but I'm going to make the troop number 666 and I'm going to put bat wings instead of brownie wings!  Woo!  I'm excited now!

If anyone has suggestions for badges or anything else- please let me know!  This is a really simple costume for anyone who is having trouble thinking of anything.  A sash is really easy to whip up on a sewing machine, and the patches don't have to be sewn on perfectly.

I think I'm going to do scar/zombie makeup too.  Why?  Because it's fun!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Ink, paint, or whatever... on: September 07, 2005 01:56:05 PM
 I know this question has been asked one hundred and one times but...

What kind of ink or paint do you use when you stencil on tee-shirts?  I tried using acrylic paint with textile medium mixed in, but the fabric just got really hard and the paint cracked after one wash.  It was very dissapointing.  So what are some good things to use?
