Can I iron a layer of freezer paper on a T-shirt to an area that is already painted?

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Yes.  I have done it before, so long as the paint is dried so there is no smearing or lifting.  Doesn't have to be heat set yet, but definitely dried.  Keep in mind too that depending on the paint you are using, and the look you are going through, the paint underneath may show through the top layer, or alter it slightly from areas where the same paint may be on bare fabric.

I did tried to paint on a previously painted t-shirt but the layers of the previous paint started peeling off....! Sad

This means that the paint you used was not set into the fabric properly.. which could have been caused by a few different reasons such as the paint being too thick, not being completely dry, not using appropriate paint for fabric (or not adding fabric medium into the paint), or the fabric being too artificial (and therefor not allowing the paint to saturate the material, but merely sit on top of it).  There's a good chance that the paint would have come off in the wash, or simply cracked and fallen off through wear, even if  you didn't decided to paint on it again.  Re-painting, dyeing, washing, wearing, sleeping on, etc should not cause paint to peel off of fabric.

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.
