80’s Style Painted Tees
There may be those that hate the 80’s and 80’s styles, but one thing no one can dispute is that the 80’s were fun (I know I was there!). Tulip Paints were there, too.
Recently Tulip Paints gave me the opportunity to relive my youth and share the fun of decorating t-shirts with my children. We received a bunch of great Tulip products to try out.
But my favorite (and my daughters’, too) is this authentic 80’s idea sheet that Tulip included.
My daughters and I shared a lot of laughter and memories paging through the pictures. (Remember the inspirational poses, you’ll see them again soon)We decided that we would use Tulip Soft Paint and Tulip 3D paints to make their tees. My girls were inspired by the 80’s designs but wanted to put a more modern twist on them. I was amused and hoped for the 80’s-ier the better.
We started with 100% cotton tees and washed the tees (no fabric softener) and then ironed them for the best possible “canvas.”
We’ve decided that it is her trademark logo. (“I meant to do that!” Name that 80’s film reference.)
You can find more about Tulip’s current Tie Dye Your Summer Campaign and giveaway by liking them on Facebook, following them on Twitter, following them on Pinterest and checking out their blog. I’d recommend all four for the great ideas and tips.
Have fun and “Paint On!” (said in my best 80’s rock voice).
