Friday, 27 November 2015

Heya! Today's post is SUPER EXCITING because I've teamed up with Annie from Something Swell to bring you this collab. The aim was to each customise a t-shirt! You can find my half of the collab over on Annie's lovely blog. Enjoy!


GRAPHIC TEE COLLABORATION

Hello all! I am so excited and honored to get to guest post here on Bramble and Lace! For this post, Zoe and I each challenged each other to share our take on a D.I.Y. t-shirt. For mine, I wanted to focus on some tongue in cheek typography on an oversized silo! This process was actually super fast and easy and would definitely make a great gift! Read on for the full tutorial!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
An Iron
Scissors
Fabric Paint/Paintbrush
Sharpie
Wax Paper



STEP 1:
For the typography, all I did was print out the typography I wanted to display on regular printer paper (You can download the template I created here). Then I copied the typography onto wax paper (you can also use freezer paper) and cut the stencil out using scissors. I strongly recommend you using an exacto knife though, as scissors were a little labor intensive.



STEP 2:
Next I ironed on the stencil (I placed a piece of paper on the back to make sure the paper did not stick to the iron) and made sure that it was really stuck on the fabric.


STEP 3:
Once the stencil was securely placed I added a dollop of paint into the center of each letter and then spread it out using a flat paintbrush. I only did one coat and I wouldn't suggest doing anymore coats because you don't want the graphic to get too thick. 


STEP 4:
Finally just dry the paint with a hairdryer until it is dry to the touch and remove the stencil!  



VOILA!
