Stencil Portraits

You can easily trace a photo in Silhouette Studio.  Cleversomeday has a great tutorial on how to do this as part of her Tracing Without Tears series.  I then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the stencil onto freezer paper, ironed it on the shirt and painted with cheap acrylic black paint.

During my recent trip to Japan we visited a fabric dyeing shop in Kyoto.  I got to make this handkerchief using the Yuzen stenciling technique.  The sushi images are done in layers with super light applications of paint.
