inspiration avenue challenge: alphabet

this week's challenge over at Inspiration Avenue is Alphabet....which gave me a chance to use this idea I found on Pinterest. i was supposed to be a Valentine's gift for my husband, but I am no good at surprises, so he's already seen it...thinks it is cute. 
i used an old tee shirt as the fabric. it surprisingly took a long time to add the words. i used a black sharpie marker or most the words and brown for our names. i used a standard plastic stencil for the words. i am very into the minimalist, typography, neutral look lately, and this is perfect for what i'm feeling. also, that's a pretty sweet painting behind the pillow, which i will talk about later.

  6. I have used a stencil on tee shirt material before, and the quote "took a long time" speaks volumes. I can totally relate to the time you spent working on it. It seems you NEVER get all those letters completely filled in, and have to go back and do bits of rework. It is awesome, very well done, and well worth representing the IA challenge this week, as well as being perfect for your hubby's Valentine present. I suspect it was time well spent.
