Screen printing?

Awhile back, Sam found a tutorial for screenprinting. I can't remember where the original one was but here's the basic idea. We went out and bought some sheer fabric, embroidery hoops, and fabric paint. Seems easy enough.

Turns out that I kind of messed up making my first one because I almost glued it down to the paper I was working on. Oops. Now it seems obvious that it was a bad idea to do it that way, not sure why I didn't think of it at the time.

Anyway, I drew a cupcake free hand and used Mod Podge to fill in the tulle where I didn't want the paint to go. I finally tried it out today and it worked!
