so, i have been making shirts for a while, but i usually use foam letter stamps and acrylic paint...this is my first true stencil and my first time with bleach! Smiley i used jenihall's tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278418.0) for bleach method. and i downloaded the stencil online. soon i will try to make my own stencils, as well!

you can see where the bleach went through the paper guarding the rest of the shirt...so i added bleach sprays across the rest of the shirt!

close up. i did the bleach, then splattered and spread a blues acrylic mix over it.

it'll go with my dino wash necklace! Wink

Definitely shiny!

It would be awesome even if it was just a plain old Blue Sun shirt, but it's not... I really like the worn-out look to it. =)

In progress; Serenity Pillow Case, One Block Wonder, Cross-Stitch Baby Quilt, Retro Dress, Beach Mosaic.

LOVE! I've been meaning to make a firefly themed tee, but it's taking ages to get around to making...
