I've been wanting to try freezer paper stenciling for a good long while, but never quite got around to it. Then I ran across a big box of freezer paper on sale, and decided it was now or never. Really, I actually thought to myself "it's now or never," which is clearly a case of dramatic overstatement, but it did get me to pick up the box and buy it, which was enough momentum to send me to one more store for a t-shirt and fabric paint. A little melodrama can go a long way, it seems.
So for my Tom Waits addicted husband, a little something groupie.
Some shiny metallic silver over a freezer paper cut-out of this photo (on a thin t-shirt shot in lousy light, alas), and voila! a new gift for . . . the twelve year-old. It turns out that guessing t-shirt size while quickly skimming the aisles of Hobby Lobby a day or two before Christmas is not the most reliable way to guess the right t-shirt size. I'm calling this the "prototype gift," and he seems to be buying it.
At least I have an excuse to pull the freezer paper out again.
