I made an airplane design on a t-shirt using a Clorox gel bleach pen back on Valentine’s Day and I described the process here on the blog. After seeing an adorable swirly pattern on a yoga shirt I was inspired to pull the bleach pen out again. Once I assembled my supplies I froze. I didn’t have a pattern to trace and didn’t feel confident making the attempt free hand (even though the t-shirt was a clearance item I had purchased for $3.24)! Elleri offered to help and she took over. And, then we collaborated to create something more her style. Then we were on a roll pulling out every t-shirt we could find in my stock of t-shirts. We even created gifts for friends we will see tomorrow (the shirts are still drying but one is included as photograph below). There is some magic in the process – as we are discovering you never know what color will emerge behind the bleach gel!
Welcome to my path for celebrating ordinary moments through creative expression, DIY projects and random acts to reclaim my creative spirit.
I hope that by sharing my creative journey, it will inspire you to give your creative spirit wings!
