Okay, I have 3 delias shirts I want to make. These are the three shirts;;

except with a regular O.

How could I go about making these? For the 2nd one I'll probaly just write it out on the computer using whatever font is closest, than print it on cardstock, use acrylic paint and paint the stencil.

But I have no idea how to go about making the 1st and 3rd ones. Any suggestions please?!

couldn't you make them the same way but using a bunch of different colors of paints? You could make the image the size you want it, print it out, trace it on cardstock, and than cut out the stencil, paint in the right colors.. and you'd have it.

For the first one cut a stencil as normal.  I would just use a sponge to paint it to get the distressed look.  Add the hearts as a second layer after the font has dried.

For the third you'll just have to spend some time working on it.  Probably using masking tape to prevent bleeding and to get straight lines would work.  It's something that you'll have to do by hand most likely.  You can probably find a similar font in Word or download it on dafont.com.

Hope that helps!
