Did you ever play with sponge stamps when you were a little? Well it is is way more then just an activity to keep kids occupied. Today I am going to show you how you can create this really fun DIY Geometric Stamped T Shirt using that same simple technique!
Here is what you will need to create your own:
– a plain t shirt (gray)
– Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paint (available at Michaels)
– a piece of cardboard
– a kitchen sponge
Start by placing the piece of cardboard inside of your t shirt and sort of stretching the fabric. This will ensure a clean stamp and prevent the paint from seeping through to the back.
Using the scissors, cut triangle shapes out of the sponge. I suggest making a variety of shapes and sizes for added interest.
Squirt a small amount of each color of Americana Multi-Surface paint onto a paper plate.
Dip the sponge stamp into the paint making sure to cover the entire surface. Then dab the excess off on the paper plate.
By alternating colors and sizes, create a patterned design on your shirt. I focused my design around the neckline of the shirt but do whatever you think looks best! It is all about expressing yourself!
I really love how this t shirt came out! It is an easy and fun way to revamp that plain old t shirt that has been hanging in your closet forever. The paint from Americana works really well on so many surfaces! It is great for fabric like I used in on for this project, but it can also be used on wood, ceramics, most plastics, glass, metal, you name it, I bet it will work! You will love wearing your creation. When people compliment your shirt, which I know they will, you get to say that you made it!!
