I have been to Stencil Revolution before... but are you allowed to use other peoples ideas and make a shirt of your own?

Also, I don't have Photoshop or Paint... what can I use to make a stencil.. Huh

Paint has a virus on it.. AAA!! It stinks! Angry

dramaqueen, check out ohmystars.net for a very good tutorial under DIY if I recall. also do a search on this site for 'silkscreen' or 'stencils' as there has been a lot of traffic on this topic recently.

good luck - and Danwei- hit those books!

Being seriously illiterate when it comes to Paint Shop and programs like that, I just put a picture into a Microsoft Word document, double click it, and set the colors to "black and white." From there you can fool around with the brightness and contrast so it fits yer fancy, but you still don't have to make it black and white from scratch  Smiley
Tips for Word stencils though: try to use pictures with basic backgrounds, so you don't get a bunch of wanky circles and lines that you wouldn't want to cut out.

Ahh, the super suave Jack Sparrow..."Welcome to the Caribbean, love."

As you can see, this has some pretty hefty background design. What you could do is take this pic into a graphic program (eek! Paint Shop!) and then draw a serious amount of white squares and lines over the background, or you could just ignore the background all together and just focus on the four lovely Irish lads in front, which would probably be a lot easier  Smiley
P.S: I would also ignore the detail on Jack's hat, which, as you may have noticed, would be a NIGHTMARE to cut out with an exacto.
Good luck!

make sure you use stencils people are alright with you using ( like thrift-deluxe or oh-my-stars). going to stencil revolution and stealing other people designs is really really crap.
stencilling for some people is a whole culture. its a huge part of hip hop culture, and people work really hard on stencils and they mean something to them. as with most cultures there are little unwritten rules about things.
stealing other people stencils, beats, lyrics etc is a big no-no. and plus.. how would you like it if you made a piece of art and someone else did the very same thing?
sorry. thats my rant for today. didn't mean to accuse anyone of anything.

this is my first attempt at shirt stenciling...  i used the spray adhesive on the back of the stencil and placed it on the shirt then spray painted... i think the paper i used for a stencil was just not thick enough cause as you can see it still bled... anyway... it is my first try...
