Here is a blast from the past (one of my very first posts). It bears repeating because stenciled, bleached, torn, embellished, embroidered,quilted, denim is hotter than ever! My pictures are not all in a proper order. But that’s o.k. you will get it.
I use the inexpensive acrylic paints I own thousands of (slight exaggeration). A proper stencil brush is important too. And use a dry brush (take off most of the paint first and add light layers to achieve the depth of color you want), with up and down pouncing motions, never at an angle or the paint will go under the stencil.
While hunting for these pictures, I found this one of my “helpers” Rubix (on the left) and Rex, partners in crime (shredded leather dining chairs to name one). They were four months old in this pic and were right here by my computer, sleeping in a basket.
A great t shirt that I bought for the front panel.
So I cut up the t-shirt and added the yellow crochet flowers to the back of the stenciled jacket.
Look in your closet. I bet you have a jean jacket hiding in there somewhere. A quick project to get done this weekend. And what fun to do it with others, adults, teens, and kids. Hugs, Heidi
