I've always thought that paint splatter looks quite cool and I thought it'd be easy to replicate and quite good fun!! I am really into monochrome at the moment (as if you hadn't noticed!!) so I bought a big pack of white socks, a pair of white leggings and a pack of white vests. About two weeks ago I hung them all on my washing line and then I grabbed a paint brush and some black Dylon fabric paint (which I already had) and I simply went outside, loaded up the paint brush and repeatedly splattered both sides of the clothing!
Hanging the clothes on the washing line was a great idea because it meant I could access both sides of the fabric at the same time (if I'd laid them on the floor I wouldn't have been able to turn them over until the first side was dry). It also meant they could air dry easily. What wasn't so sensible was that I didn't think about what I was wearing. I wore my denim dress and quite quickly I ended up with some paint splatters on it!! At that point I took the dress off, put a black top & leggings on, hung the dress on the line with the other clothes and resumed splatting!!
All in all it took me about half an hour. Once the paint had dried I brought them inside and ironed them to set the paint. That was it!! I think they look amazing. Even my own dress, it looks cool!

What do you think?
Have you heard of the children's clothing shop Gorgeous Little George? They have launched their own range of t shirts recently and I'm really loving them. I bought one for Felix that says "Mummy is a Blogger" and it's getting some real love on Instagram!!
If you've written any kids fashion posts lately, link up below! Don't forget to check out the giveaway I'm running here for a beautiful Elodie Details hooded towel. On Insta I'm giving away a fantastic bedding set!
Happy Friday everyone! X
