Stenciled Jeans

Do you remember the old Reese Cup commercial when two people bump into each other which causes the chocolate bar to fall into the jar of peanut butter?  That was almost what it was like at my house when I was picking up my daughter’s jeans and then I saw one of my new stencils.  What if I put them together?  This is what happens!


Here are the steps:

I used Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s stencil put the first layer of paint on (this was just craft paint – I figure it will wash just fine since any time I spill paint on my clothes it never comes out).  Here it is with almost all the raindrops on it.

2. Outlined the shapes with a Sharpie.3. Used 3 colors of craft paint to paint swipes of color inside the shapes.

    You should totally make and sell those. I would buy this one. Seriously, I love it. So cool.

    Thanks for your kind words! My kids are realizing if they leave things around and I get to them while they are at school things might “happen” to their stuff. Maybe I’ll even get a cleaner house out of this!

    Fabulous! They look like the sort of thing I would have worn back in the days when I was a hippy (long, long time ago) 🙂
    Big love

    I like AJ’s response above about being a hippy. Me too! Love what you did with a simple stamp. The colors look great together.

    Pollo, I love these! What a great idea, and yes, that paint never comes out, so why not capitalize on the boo boo and make use of the beginning of a design!

    Oops, don’t know why my iPad picked up the word ‘pollo’ – hello should have been the word.
