my mixtape brings all the boys to the yard.

'' The MixTape Collection "

these are some photos showing things that were for a textile/jewellery unit I did at college, mines was based on my
love of mixed tapes & stencil art. I made a scarf, tshirt with stencil motifs using a printing screen & customized a 'tape' necklace with pink spray paint & diamontes.

(thankyou to my daisy girls - Kat & Miranda)

Stencil making is easy and is one of my most favourite techniques, I've used it on clothing, scrapbooks, home made cards,

heres how to make your own stencils: 

firstly, choose an image.. there is plenty of premades of the internet these are good to practice with before you can go onto creating your own personal & unique stencils, I love marilyn monroe so I've used this one from:

now what you are going to is carefully cut with a sharp stanley knife. and lay down the pieces
down to paper/material.

 voila! once you remove those bits of paper you will have a beautiful marilyn stencil!
If you are wanting to make use stencils on clothing you would be much better to invest in a printing screen it gives a much smoother effect (remember use a fabric dye)

Happy Printing
Love Rosie xo
