Rebel Graffiti Tee - a two for one

I wanted to show you one more way to utilize both parts of your freezer stencil.  When you go through that much work, it's nice to have two things to show for it.  I thought it would be fun to make matching tees for Rex and his cousin.  Here are our "Rebel" tees and here's how to do it.

I tried out this fabric spray paint from Tulip.  I liked it overall, but it came out a bit lighter than it looks like on the bottle.  It's more of a purplish-blue than a royal blue.  It's a little more expensive than the regular kind, but you can use a Michael's coupon on it.

Here's my template.  Feel free to use it.  The circle is for the back of the'll see.

Iron down your stencil and spray the shirt.  I recommend taking a few practice sprays before you hit the shirt, just to get the feel of it.  It was super easy and fast. 

I used the normal part of the stencil for this shirt.

Here's the back.

I added floss to both tees - on the seams and as a shadow to the word, "Rebel."

Want another way to use the other half of the stencil?  Go see the bleached mustache tee if you missed that post.

Now, a couple of matters of business....

1) Tomorrow I'll post the sword winner AND a new winner for the Anthro-inspired necklace.  (She never e-mail me back so you've got another chance.)

2) I'm making some little changes on the appearance of the blog, what do you think?

3) Loopdeelou has some new headbands in the shop.  Check 'em out.

Thanks so much for dropping in today.  Have a wonderful day!

You are wonder woman. I love the new look of your blog!

First, the blog is fab. Second, your t-shirts are always so inspiring. I'm hoping to pop out a few when I have a bit of time. Second, your soft head bands are amazing. I thought they would slide off my head-- but they don't they are perfect. They aren't squeezing my brain and they stay in place. I love them! I'll be ordering more.

Very cool. I like the stitching on the sleeves.

To answer your question about where to get your picture printed. I go to my local university campus print shop (I live in Logan so I go the Taggart Student Center copy center at USU). If you live near a university, they usually do a great job and have the best price. If you don't, I recommend a print shop that usually does ads and fliers for local businesses. They should be able to print color laser in small to large sizes. I hope that helps. I am sorry to hear you have had trouble finding a printer. Good luck!

Oh...but I must add that most of the print shops I have encountered cannot print larger than 11x17 in color laser toner at all or they have to move to a larger printer which will cost much, much more money (think over $20).

I just finished a 16x20 canvas in color without spending an arm and leg by splitting my image into two 11x17 images...but I will post about that later. ;) Good luck again!

I surfed in from somewhere and have read through three last pages of posts and criss crossed over to other site and I would like to say " you young people have sooo much talent I hope you do well in your chosen field "
