Beauty in Design Challenge// Week 24

*Congratulations to Liz for winning last week's challenge!*

{We were not able to have a challenge last week because Grace's computer had a virus, unfortunately! She said it's back to normal now, and we'll end up posting her challenge at a later date. ;) }

Hello Everyone, this week it is my turn to come up with the design challenge. I decided to do a tshirt challenge. This week make a design on a tshirt. It doesn't matter what size or what needs to be put on it- just be creative and have fun! :)

 Here is my entry. I did this and tried to imitate the Google logo but changed the words.

Here are a few you can do for example: facebook, twitter, pinterest, google+, rss feed, email

Since the challenge is to make them unique I'm not going to put down a specific size. Be creative!

Here are the ones I created:

Have fun!
