I’ve decided to experiment and create my first T-shirt. Based off my “Caffeine Kitty” coffee painting.
My first ever attempt at using GIMP and transparent layers

Thankyou so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my artwork!

    Congrats on the first very attractive T! I know how you feel!! (Also used GIMP a few weeks ago for the first time!)

  • Thankyou so much Liz! It took ages to get all of the areas behind the coffee splatters transparent. I think it was worth the effort though.

  • Thanks Linda. If I was going to buy one of my shirts I think it would be this one. My daughter wants her own caffeine kitty shirt now :)

    But it was worth it Dianne! Beautiful! That transparent layer makes all the difference, STILL don’t know how to do it….

  • Thanks Maree! I have been wanting to do a t-shirt with this design for a while but didn’t know how to do the transparency. I wanted it to look splattered on the shirt and not just printed on a white block.

    don’t blame her it looks great on a t! :)

  • I’ve always liked the idea of a coffee mug! Maybe that could be next for red bubble :)

    Gosh I don’t even know what GIMP is!!! BUT I will find out – ask my daughter or 10yr old grandson!! Apart from being ignorant about the program I do love this T. You should be proud of it. Well done.

    Kaaaaaaay – Sugars are kicking in again but it might be good to leave it to make the caffeine kitty smile! :)) Kay

  • If you check out the help section on rb it has a link to download gimp and lots of help on how to make a t shirt.
    Glad you like my design :)
