"Artsy" Tee

Oh goodness. I love this shirt.

It looks ten times better in person.



I made it with this fantastic stuff that I discovered recently; it's like spray paint for clothes! Isn't that brilliant? It stays soft and you can even wash it! The possibilities are endless with this. I'm excited! It's called "Simply Spray".


On this shirt (which, by the way, is pink, not red.) I used red, pink, bright pink, and white. You certainly don't have to use that many different shades, but I like how it looks like I've worn this shirt while doing dozens of art projects. :o)

Start with a few swirls of each color, then go over it again with each color making big circles randomly, for a layered look. Don't forget to add cardboard or thick paper between your shirt layers!


Let it dry, and ta-da! You have all the benefits of looking like an artist, without actually knowing how to paint!


Which is good. 'Cause I don't.



But who knows, maybe it will inspire me to a new art??
I can't wait to spray paint more things!

  8. Audrey: No, I wasn't paid, but they did send me some samples to try a while ago. I'm just now getting a chance to use them, and they are really fun! I can't wait to try stenciling :o)

    Beverly: I think Michaels, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and those types of places all sell it.

  10. Ha Ha Disney. I have tons of shirts that look like that as I forget to get them when I start painting thus I ruin another. And now you are making them like that on purpose.? My kids would think that is so funny as they always ask me - mom aren't any of your shirts paint free?

  22. That is very cute! I think the tulip brand has a spray bottle you can buy and then use different color paints with. I'm fairly new to using fabric paints, but I want to try this too!

  23. Disney that is so cute & funny. I am not an artist, but I do paint objects & the walls in my house. Several of my shirts look similar though not as pretty colors. Wait til I tell my hubby that it really is fashionable to have paint splattered clothing. :) Love it!!

  25. Hi Disney! I'm thinking this would be a great idea to disguise stains on clothes, to save them from being thrown away. I'm hoping I will be able to find this paint in NZ soon!
