Surface Design on T-shirt

Shhh . . . don't tell anyone, but I can be really sloppy. It seems like I'm constantly getting stains on my shirts. I'm tired of throwing out perfectly good shirts, so I got creative with some surface design.I decided to hide two little stains smack in the middle of the shirt with some writing. I guess I got a little carried away. Now, I'm going to add more layers with transparent paint. Can you see the stains? Hope not!

Here are some of the beautiful ATC's I received at our last trade. Lucilla (top left) used real clothes pins on her card and Louise (bottom left) stitched her cat using black thread. They are all so beautiful and creative.

Great idea....it looks wonderful. Now you'll make all kinds of new friends as they stop to read your shirt! :)

Hello, I found you through Sue Bleiweiss' blog. I love your shirt! I, too am curious about what you decided to write. I'd love to know more about the process too.

Peace!

What a lovely way to hide spots :)) I have a lot of t-shirts with spots too.
Congratulations on the quilt in Rayna's book.The book looks very colourful. That fire storm must have been so frightening, I hope there won't be another one for 50 years.
