I’ve been frequenting a local Salvation Army store. Those old coffee pots that make 30 cups are great for heating up water outdoors. All my crockpots come from there and the many pots, measuring cups and spoons; in fact, that’s where most of my equipment comes from. Lately, I picked up some men’s shirts and upcycled them. Here’s an eco-printed “Boyfriend shirt,” that I just to put on Etsy .Mordanted in alum, soymilk, then alum and calcium carbonate. It’s soft and dreamy. I think it turned out pretty sweet!
And two more that I’ll be keeping for myself; above, a thick cotton pullover. Below, I’m posing in a short sleeved T-Shirt; both of these were rusted first and overprinted with leaves.
On the dreamy one above, I used a chalk blanket and on the other two, which printed darker, I used an iron blanket.
This picture was for a Creative Strength Training prompt project to illustrate ourselves as a tree! Silly, huh!?
This time, I’m remembering to link up with Off The Wall Friday!

Nice. Idea and practical art. Maybe I can find a shirt you can print for me! I am in Wakefield today Sunday.

I love them! I used to have fun dabbling with a friend years go, but nothing as wonderful as this! Awesome Janis and so good to see you!
Thanks Robyn! I’ve been getting a lot done this season and learning quite a bit!
