I'm not much of a fashionista, but I do try to look my best. I love to buy trendy little tops or earrings to update my look a bit. This time, rather than go out to buy something, I looked through my closet and found a shirt that I never wore because it was boring. One of the best ways I like to update any room in my house is paint, so I gave that same theory a shot with a shirt.
I added a gold glitter heart!!
This is how the shirt started. It's kinda plain and was a smidge see through, so I rarely wore it.
I hand cut a heart shape from freezer paper. Then I ironed it to the shirt. I also ironed a piece a little larger than the heart on the inside in back of the heart to catch any bleed through paint.
I just wanted to use what I had on hand so I mixed regular acrylic paint with textile medium. I wish I had used fabric paint though because after all of the coats I did on the shirt, it was quite stiff. But after a few more washing's, I'm sure it will loosen up.
Here is the shirt. The heart added a little somethin' something and gave the shirt new life!
And here is a photo of me wearing the shirt.
So if you have a shirt in your closet that you aren't wearing, look to see if you could update it with a little paint. The possibilities are endless.
