DIY...Rainbow Strokes Tee

 Hello everyone! Today I have a new DIY that I like to call the Rainbow Strokes Tee. I made this t-shirt in honor of my non-profit organization, Party For Autism. The different colorful strokes and the mixing of colors are suppose to represent the primarily similar yet different characteristics that make up individuals with autism. (Read about our philosophy here!)
Normally, I would give a detailed tutorial on how to make this shirt, but I feel like that takes the creativity out of it! Here are the basic materials that you will need:
-A black t-shirt (learn how to make a tank top out of a t-shirt here!)
-An Assortment of Acrylic Paint
-A paint brush (I use a black sponge brush)
-A straight edge (optional) to make sure that your lines are even on the top and bottom, and not slanted on the sides, unless that's the look you want!
Make sure that you hold your t-shirt up against you from time to time to make sure that your lines are long enough, or mark them ahead of time.

(My inspiration bored in the back is feeling pretty empty! That's a problem!)
And I cannot mention strokes without thinking about this wonderful band! Thanks again, Alex for introducing me to them awhile back ;)
