7781  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 2-Color Birthday T-shirts on: June 14, 2008 06:38:30 AM
After much success with freezer paper stencils, I decided to branch out and try 2 colors... I still need to work on this technique (and I'd love any advice!)...

I needed to make 2 birthday presents for today, so I decided to do each girl's initial and put some little images on them.

For this one, I stenciled the hearts first and then the letter. I ironed the freezer paper over the hearts to make the mask.


For this one, I stenciled the butterflies first and then because the were only on the borders of the letter, I only had to cut out the letter with the butterflies indented as a mask. I had some bleeding on this one and, because it was 11 pm when I was doing this, I forgot to put the center of the "A." I was going to put a white butterfly in the center (I had mixed the paint and knew I'd never be able to match the original butterfly color), but I was too tired to cut the butterfly. So, I used the "A" that I had cut out and ironed it down and put white paint in the center. But it bled horribly, so I had to fix it up with a toothpick "brush." It doesn't look to bad from a distance... and she's only 8...

Yay! Welcome pookysue! With every dishcloth I make, I get just a little bit better at crocheting. And, since they are only dishcloths, it's okay if they aren't perfect!

More cool things! The 4-leaf clover pendant is awesome! And, I love the fabric on the singlet-style bag!

Can't wait to see what everyone else is going to post!

Very cute Hollistercobabe!  I think the little details add so much to their personalitites...

I had some awesome photos of the jelly fish and mother nature pendant that I took in front of the window so the colors were really awesome, but today I went to wal-mart to get some photos developed and I slipped on the floor and my camera smashed (along with my tail bone)!   Cry Cry Cry

Oh my goodness! Are you okay??


ETA: Okay, I replied before I read all of the posts... so I'm glad that you're okay (but sorry you're sore!). I hope the crisis isn't too severe!

Mel and her zombie are so cute! I haven't sketched out my first character yet...but I'm working on the mental image. Only 4 1/2 days left of school and then I'm on it!!

That wine bag is awesome! I don't drink the stuff myself, but I have family members who do...

And, a four-leaf clover pendant would be so cool! Oh, man...I don't think I can stand the suspense for another couple of weeks- finding out my recipient will ease some of the agony, but then I have to wait to find out what I'm getting Wink

I cant wait for you to get it!!

It came! And I LOVE IT!!!

A beautiful double jellyfish pendant on a necklace made with beads that are reminiscent of the ocean!


And, a "reject" (according to zombiekilla, anyway...wonderful in my eyes!). A duplicate of the pendant only about 4 times bigger (which enables you to see the beautiful details and color!).


And another "reject" (once again...according to zombiekilla, but beautiful to me!). It's Mother Nature!


Thanks so much ZK! I love them! And, if hadn't already promised a 2nd grader to wear my "blood clot" pendant from the Science IS Art swap, I'd be wearing it tomorrow! But, there's always Monday Wink

And, double thanks for organizing!! You rock!

That's such a bummer that it broke! I was worried about mine too, even though I sent it in a padded envelope. I was worried that the skinny parts would snap off around the perimeter magnets. I even cringed when the PO lady stamped it with the "Fragile" stamp Wink

And, my OTT didn't arrive yesterday and torture me with the wait! But, it did arrive in town early yesterday morning, so it may actually get delivered today!!

Yay! I'll be home at a relatively decent hour today, so I can post pics ASAP if it arrives Wink

wow that purple lady is beyond awesome! I wish I had know how to blend like that before I sent my piece, hopefully craftADDchick likes hers!!

I'm sure I'll love it! But I really hope that it doesn't arrive tomorrow- I won't be home until after 9 PM, and if I obsessively check the DC# (as I typically do Wink ), I'll be so antsy until I get home! So, I'll be home at a more reasonable hour on Thursday...

This is the first time I've ever hoped a swap package wasn't delivered at light speed! Cheesy Cheesy
