We've been having lots of conversations here lately about what constitutes art, as opposed to graffiti.
I'm not sure into which category the girls would put me painting all over their T-shirts - but I suspect it's graffiti!
I have a new tool to assist me in 'graffitiing' old and/or plain T's - this book, Stencil Me In.
It comes with 28 reusable stencils of varying size, in lots of great designs that will suit children and adults.
Images that can be used on a variety of projects - be they cushions, bags, clothing or of course you can use them on surfaces other than textiles!
I decided to try something new this time to assist with a clean finish.
I sprayed the back of the stencil with quilt basting spray to hold it in position.
It worked a treat - even for this very intricate design - I am really pleased with how sharp the results are.
Quilt basting spray is repositionable too - so if you put it in the wrong spot - just peel it off and try again.
I'm off to get few more paint colours as I can see this book being experimented with a lot in the coming months.
