  6. 6. This is from a class I took that showed how to use the more complex patterns
  7. 7. This is what the file looks like when opened with Gimp Robin has created layers that are specific to just making a T-shirt Robin has done all the work and hidden the avatar layer
  8. 8. Let’s Take a Closer Look at the Layers You can add more highlight for darker colors You can add whatever design you choose You can adjust to any color You are given the basic white shirt
  9. 9. All you need to do is create a design and choose a color! Use the Bling tutorial to create text based designs
  10. 10. To show the color, make sure the eyeball is showing on that layer Make sure the eyeball is not showing for the website layer Then go to the Colors menu and choose Hue-Saturation
