So I had to study for my oral Dutch exam and got so sick of it that I was thinking of the craziest ways to escape studying...so I crocheted two beanies, made a couple of earrings and taught myself (well some surfing around and then I just stenciled away!) how to stencil.

Thank you craftster. I love you. You make exams the sparkiest crafty period of the year!

So, I didn't have any ideas of what to stencil, but I was talking to my Argentinian cousin on gtalk so I decided to go for Eva Pern (Evita). My uncle owns the restaurant next to the Evitamuseum in Buenos Aires. Lovely food, lovely place. (Just so you know)


I found an image I liked and made a stencil out of it in word.
printed on carstock, cut out, placed on random male white shirt I bought (you know, the things they wear under their clothes, I don't know the english word for it) and put fabric paint all over my stencil.
So it's not perfect, but that doesn't matter as it is a shirt to sleep in.

up next:
MY ALL TIME HERO: PATRICK MCGOOHAN. aka Number Six aka The Prisoner. I hope you all know him, cause man, The Prisoner must be the best series ever made in human history.

Just my opinion.

I think I'll have to stencil something like:
-Number Six
-I helped Patrick Mcgoohan escape
-Patrick McGoohan
underneath the image, what do you think?

I wore it to my french exam today. I hope that some the Prisoner fan notices it and comes talk to me, so I can marry him/her. They're a rare breed in Belgium, so I'll take any gender, age or appearance.

by the way, I'm not big on ironing Cheesy

My favorite Prisoner line is: "I am not a number!"

I love Patrick McGoohan, too. (Right now I have the "Secret Agent Man" theme running through my head

The polite American term for "random male white shirt" is "undershirt"
The IMpolite American term is "wife-beater"

Love your stuff!

Man! I was just thinking yesterday about a Patrick McGoohan stencil! Sweet!

My favorite line is "Be seeing you."

I think I'm going to make some other Patrick/The Prisoner stencils.
If you'd ever need 'em, on this page are big big pictures of him, from Danger Man. (which I never saw, but want to see) I used one of them to make my stencil, in word. It's pretty hard to find any good big picture of him using google images, or surfing the fansites.
Here's some stills from the series, the site has some wallpapers too.

I might just stencil this one:

If you find any good pictures on the internet let me know Smiley
Be seeing you!
