 >:(I had stupid moment.

I have covered an old album in some funky fabric. That went fine. I am going to be keeping an album of everything I make and whatnot.

Sooo I stencilled Sarah's Album on the front. (stencilling around the letters so it is a messy edge if that makes sense...the letters are empty, the paint is around them)

Well, I did Sarah in Blue. And album in yellow. After I was done, I realized picking yellow was stupid because that part of the fabric is yellow...so you can't really see it. SO I tried to put a bit of blue on it, and some yellow on Sarah. But it is still hard to see.

I don't have the stencil on it anymore and it was a one time use stencil. How can I fix this without stenciling again?  Huh

Hmm....maybe you could outline the negative space in the letters of "Album" with a black sharpie? That might help you see the yellow paint outlining them, because of the contrast...if that makes sense. It's a little hard for me to visualize. Other than that I guess you could take a paintbrush with a different color and try to brush it over the yellow carefully. Anyway, hope this helps a little - good luck, it sounds like a neat project!
