Fun With Fabric Paint Part 1

The next couple of weeks I will be posting a series of posts called "Fun With Fabric Paint". It will be featuring some of my refashions guessed it! Fabric paint!
A littke background story: My love for fabric paint started back when I was in high school. I started making t-shirts for my favorite musical bands and then moved onto making cute novelty tees. I figured if I couldn't find it for sale, I would make it!
I wish I still had all of the tees I made but alas I grew out of them and ran out of space to store them. I just hope someone found them at the Salvation Army and loved them as much as I did!
My 1st one in this segment is a tee I made to show my love for refashioning! 

I found this awesome sewing themed heartbeat online. Printed it. Cut it out wih an Xacto knife. And painted it on my shirt.
I really like the orange shirt and purple paint. A combo out of my comfort zone.

This is also the shirt I wore in my Refashion Runway Challenge #3 post!
Happy Refashioning!!!

I love painting on plain tees too! Instead of paper I use wax paper (I think -- the box is nowhere near me) because I can iron the waxy side of the paper onto the shirt and then peel it off once the paint has dried. I like the wax paper because it won't move after I iron it on. I look forward to your series!
