Project #7

This project has been a while in the making. After pulling a picture of one of Taylor's favorite cars--- the Bugatti Veyron--- into photoshop, I wound up with this pretty awesome stencil.


I went to Hobby Lobby and bought thin acrylic sheets with the intention of cutting it out and having a reusable stencil. The instructions on the package were simple---- trace your pattern and use an exacto blade to cut out the shapes. Easier said than done. The sheet cracked, the knife wouldn't cut all the way through, and making rounded edges were about near impossible. I gave up out of frustration until this morning, when I finally printed my pattern out onto a piece of cardstock. 


This time the knife slid through like butter. The only tricky part was the wheels---- cutting them out without ripping them away from the paper. The teeny tiny shapes on the rim weren't a piece of cake either.


Regardless, the stencil came out awesome, and will be really need printed onto a shirt or some other item for Taylor.
