I finally got on the freezer paper stencil band wagon and it's time I did! This is such an easy, rewarding, inexpensive thing to do. I bought a roll of freezer paper at least two years ago. I specifically remember packing it through two moves. Definitely time to give it a shot. The hardest part was getting the stencil just right but I found an awesome tutorial online. Eliot has been having some separation anxiety at school so I decided to make him a shirt with his favorite pal, Lion, on it.
This is the picture, portrait really, of Lion I started with.
After tweaking it in Photoshop, printing it on freezer paper, ironing it etc..
The final result! I am pretty happy with it. I learned a few things this trip to make the next one really cool. I have so many ideas for this. The creative juices are flowing around here right now and how good that feels!
