"Designers! Gather Round..."

"Designers, your challenge for today begins with the basic white tee. A classic shape that can be dyed, cut trimmed, torn, embellished, use it as your inspiration to create the most fashion forward outfit imaginable. Be sure your creation shows your point of view... Your time begins now!" (said in my best Tim Gunn impression)


Any Project Runway fans reading my blog? I love that show (any early favorites? email me to dish about them later!:) partly because I would love to be able to design clothes(without having to mess with sewing!!) What would YOU do with a tee? What would your say about you and who you are as an artist? No crazy budget or material constraints here, you have complete creative freedom to make what you want... :) (I have pages and pages of tees I've stamped out on plain white paper and altered in different ways like these you see here... I'll get around to them all some day!)


Now, I will not have access to my email for several days (including when the Gina K Designs Guest design auditions start), wahhhhh!! :( (I'm going to have a lot to catchup on!!) But if you post something you would like me to see with the tees and are interested in a chance at guest designing with my set next month, please email me the link and I will be sure to come check it out as soon as I get back! "Make it work!" :)
Speaking of, tomorrow is Cathy's guest spot, please come check it out!

I'd love the chance to be a guest designer next month, but I can't seem to get my tees! :( The mailman is holding them hostage for 10 days now! I'm very anxious to play, though! :)
