DIY: Galaxy t-shirt

I'm loving the new galaxy print trend, and I can't find this print in any high street store. So I thought I would attempt to DIY. It was so easy to make and very cheap. You don't need to be an artist to make a t-shirt like this.

Here is my attempt at the DIY print trend on a t-shirt

I put the t-shirt on a piece of card board so it's easier to paint on.

I added a little bit of paint of each colour to a sponge and pressed it all over the t-shirt to add a galaxy effect. This is so simple and easy to do.

I added blue fabric paint to the t-shirt, to add a better effect. Next step I used bleach, wear gloves when handling the bleach as it will burn the skin. Carefully add bleach to the sponge and dabb it generously over the t-shirt and you quickly see the effect of the bleach as it lightens the t-shirt to a orangey colour. Now use your paintbrush to splatter the white fabric paint over the t-shirt to add the finishing touches to your t-shirt.

Voila and the t-shirt is done :)
