Getting Shirty!!

The theme this time round at Mixed Media Monday is 'Something Old'
Well this project fits on 2 levels.. Not only is it some time ago since i actually made this and just forgot to share it, but i also made it using an old t'shirt.
All i did was to mix some paint with some fabric medium, and then stamp images onto the Tee using the paint mixture.. leave to dry.. and voila, one super trendy outfit from an old plain shirt!
I used a selection of Timmy stamps for mine but you can use whatever inspire's you.
Also you can used Claudine Hellmuths Studio paints as these are fab for this sort of work {i just didn't have any at the time! But i do now i may add lol}

way cool - i recently did this to a tshirt but i really really should have been more restrained with the stamping - stamped within an inch of its life and looks pants is the best way to describe mine LOL
