Creating Wearable Art with Genea

Hello beautiful souls,

Sometimes you just need some new clothes because you are tired of the same old stuff, that and you have not found a style out there like something you could make yourself. I bought this t-shirt with the intention to paint on it for Christian and finally got to it. I started out with the star and cross stencil for my glow-in-the-dark layer.  I will admit this is the HARDEST layer to see since it's almost transparent. I did 2 layers of fabric paints to make sure I had a nice solid glowing layer. I checked my progress with a black light to make sure I didn't have a week blurry looking layer.  I also botched getting the design even an I didn't end on the box shape of the stencil so I have one extra line on the right side of the shirt (Oops!). I also had to repeat the stencil 3 times to make the back design to finish the block shape.

Next I used the Metatron's cube stencil with black paint since it's the central design for the shirt.

I used tape to secure the stencil and keep it from shifting as I worked. I wanted to accent some more symbols on the shirt so I chose the pocket chakra stencils. I laid out a few designs to see how I wanted to use the chakras and decided I wanted the root chakra in the center of the cube.

Here is the finished shirt design.

I wish I could have gotten a better photo of how awesome the shirt glows, but you can kind of get the idea here.

How do you keep your wardrobe exciting by making art?

Love, light, and creativity,

xoxo Genea
