a reverse print

Today was a cleaning house and packing for camping day. After packing my selection of clothes (all casual) I was a bit bored with my options, and my hands were tingling to get stuck into something a bit more exciting. So I grabbed an old grey hoodie that has been out of favour for a while and jazzed it up a little.

The in progress shot:
Didn't think to take before photos. Suffice to say it looked the same except without the black print. I used a lace paper stencil I picked up a while ago from a scrapbooking shop. I sprayed adhesive on the back, stuck it on the front (zipper closed) and painted away. So when the lace paper was pulled away, the print comes to life. I like the way the print is together when zipped up and separated when open. And now I have a half decent hoodie to wear on our trip!
Next posts will be in a week or so. Hopefully I will have some nice ones from camping.


  1. I've seen those stencils in the shops but I never would have thought of using them to jazz up a piece of clothing. Fab idea!

  2. This is a really cool idea, Pam - I am super impressed with the outcome. Good one! Have a blast camping!

  3. What a really clever idea Pam. Your hoodie looks awesome.

  4. Very clever. Way too flash for camping!

  5. very cool. great idea with the lace paper thing. never heard of that.
