I haven't done an Iron Craft challenge since week 3. This blog was born because of it. I felt my photography blog needed to be just that, my photography stuff. I couldn't figure out how to include photography in all of those challenges. Plus there were a few other crafty things I wanted to participate in and didn't want to tie up the other blog with it.
This week's challenge was green. And this is what I made.
I think it's super cute and the best part is that it was super easy.
I popped out some die cut letters because I'm poor and can't afford a Silhouette or a Cricut. (I can't even win one!)
I sprayed the back of them with some tacky spray glue.
Then I laid them out on my shirt. This is also when I realized I forgot the shamrock so I printed one off real quick and cut it out. (I have a paintbrush shape in photoshop.)
I changed into grunge clothes (no picture of this I don't want to scare off new readers.) broke down a Pepsi box and put some bleach into a spray bottle. I put the box in the shirt and sprayed some bleach on it. I got it a little wetter then I had wanted but I think think it's super cute! (Note: I flipped it over and did the back too! I also went outside to do the spraying.)
I peeled the letters and shamrock off and then soaked in my bathtub full of cold water. Then I washed and dried it normally.
I saw this idea, they did designs on a t-shirt, somewhere on the interwebs. I don't remember where or when. I didn't bookmark it or if I did it's saved on the crashed computer. If it was your original idea, you rock!! I fell in love with technique and may end up bleaching all kinds of t-shirts.
All photos were taken on my iPhone.
