- I was smitten today by the Harajuku shirt article in Craft. REALLY smitten. I owe a young lady a custom t-shirt, but I had no inspiration. The article sparked my imagination, so I finally got busy.
H has had a rough go of it lately. When she was a kid, she showed livestock in many local shows, and earned a lot of money for college. Her mother recently packed a suitcase and emptied out the kid's college fund, then moved to greener pastures. Her dad's remarried, and her step mother is a little on the strict side. Monica and I sat with H the other day and worked on her scholarship applications. So far, she's moved really far up in the competion, so it might work out ok.
My kids always liked 'ransom note' collages made with torn up magazine quotes, so I went in that direction, rather than the anime shown in the article. All my craft findings came from my local Wallyworld, and I used Avery transfer paper for dark shirts. Thank God for scanners, because I was able to throw M&Ms and a silk daisy into the mix for a really fun look. I stenciled with gold glitter paint (c'mon, we live in Texas), and need to do a little embroidery tomorrow, then I will post a photo of the whole shirt. I gotta do that embroidery, because I think it might be too big!
