I’m becoming a little obsessed with that freezer paper stencil technique. I see a stain on a shirt and think, “Gee, what could I stencil over that stain?” I know I have tons of perfectly good t-shirts with breastmilk and spit up stains on them. Maybe I could strategically place a design so that it’s not directly on my boob? Anyway, I bought these cute little overall shorts for my I-guy at a JC Penny outlet store and thought that they definitely needed sprucing up. I thought a tricycle would be the perfect thing.
I have been using Tulip’s Soft Fabric Paint to do these. I just bought the paint pots in a package of 12 for about $6. They have worked great for me. They dry permanent and wash well. For the tricycle, I went a little overboard with the paint. I was originally going to do just the lime green color. Then I added blue spokes and a blue seat, and then well, it just became mutlicolored! Sometimes I get a little carried away with well, a lot of things.
Anyway, I have been slacking in my Every Day in May art. Been busy working on Mommy Day gifts. As soon as my mom and my mom-in-law get their packages I’ll post what I made. (mommies are you excited?) he he he!
Also, I have been recieving notecards from some of the participants of my Notecard Swap. They are fabulous of course! I will start up a Flickr set once I get them scanned &/or photographed. So so so exciting to get these packages of beautiful notecards in the mail.
