22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / arlo t-shirt stencil on: June 22, 2005 10:29:18 PM
ga. my friend randall just got me into arlo and im addicted to their song shutterbug. and what do you know? its his birthday coming up, so last night i whipped up this t-shirt for him. when i give it to him next week i'll get some action shots and then post them on artificia. (so emo i am!)

this is on the upper front left breast (when worn)

this is the lyric. stencilled on the bottom right hand back (when worn)

i free-handed the camera (based on a picture from wikipedia) and printed out the words from the computer. i then glued about four pieces of paper together behind the image, waited till dry and then knifed out the "negative" parts. um. as for paint i used simple acrylic paint from an art shop. no fabric medium. it works wonders! can go in the dryer no problem and doesnt bleed what so ever (though it does crack). xoxo di.

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / thousand hearts t-shirt on: April 30, 2005 01:50:52 AM
well, maybe not a thousand hearts, but... right now i'm in japan and nothing fits above a size 4-6 for women! so, over winter break i headed to the japanese version of a dollar store and bought a men's t-shirt, 100yen, and some felt pieces, 100yen. and voila. thousand hearts t-shirt.

i did a second generation for a friend, and you can see a picture of it and a mini-tutorial at
and more pictures here.
(p.s. i love felt!)
