Your Biggest Fan Tees

DIY T-Shirts Using ProWorld Products | Amy Tangerine

I've been wanting to make tees with "Your biggest fan" on it since last summer, and I finally figured out the best way to do it. For my collaboration with Pro World Inc, we decided to use their redesigned site, PW Custom. I also invited a guest designer who I have admired for a long time, Jill DeHaan. Her lettering work is amazing, and she also happens to be one of the cutest, sweetest, and hard working mamas I know.

My studio is still not completely set up, but it is working quite well. There are still some piles and boxes, but we are working around them. Here is the little corner with the Pro World heat press.

I ordered several custom designs from PW Custom - super easy to upload and order and they helped set up the designs on the sheets to maximize and get the most bang for the buck. You'll see the other designs in an upcoming post. I went simple and decided to stick with one color white and black designs. I followed the instructions and printed the designs right on.

The best part is that it is truly like a screenprinted design. The quality is wonderful and these shirts turned out fantastic.

We sent out a bunch of these designs to Jill and I just love seeing how cute she looks in it!

I also asked her to about the collaboration and here is what she said: What a pleasure it was to collaborate with sweet, lil Amy Tan on this project. As a fellow creative, Amy knew the importance of giving me free reign to explore different mediums and lettering styles to my hearts content. And in the end, I was happy to land on a playful, honest and flowing design that best described how I felt about the phrase, “Your Biggest Fan”. I wear the design happily as a reminder to those I love and as a tribute to the unpredictable, inspiring and utterly enjoyable design process itself. Thanks for the lovely opportunity, Amy!

Thanks for sharing your talents with us, Jill! And thanks to Pro World for collaborating with me on these shirts and post! Have you always wanted something printed on a shirt? Let me know in the comments!

Motivational Monday + a video blog

These Motivational Monday quotes have really been helping me and I hope they continue to inspire you. 

Love this quote scripted by Amy Tangerine

It's important for me to remember, that the happiness and positivity that you radiate can affect others in a wonderful way. I'm realizing more and more that every day is a gift. Even the difficult days can show us so many new lessons if we show up for them. Also, I have learned that winning a mop and sharing cookies and cocktails with friends can brighten up any Monday. Filmed this vlog back in the middle of April. Enjoy!

I'm using this watercolor set from Michaels and a waterbrush that I love by Tim Holtz/Ranger. If you have a favorite quote – silly, snarky or simple in its’ wisdom, please share in the comments!

Sometimes...

Sometimes quote scripted by Amy Tangerine

As much as I love traveling, there is nothing quite like being home. Jack got sick on the vacation portion of our Florida trip (argh!) but seems to be close to being 100% a week later. Sometimes it's weird, but I do have to remind myself to just breathe. Doing the best I can to keep up with it all, and just grateful to have such an awesome support group and fangerines that are amazing. Made a little video while at Kara's and you can see it here.

My Favorite Watercolors

Amy Tangerine's favorite watercolors + free download

If you've been following this blog, my Instagram or YouTube channel, then you'll know how much I love this watercolor set by Artist's Loft. They are a fantastic beginner set with many beautiful colors. They're functional and photograph so well! I broke out a fairly new set to do some scripting with this waterbrush. There's also a free download and video below!

You can also see the five reasons this set is my favorite on the Michaels blog.

I've made just the quote into a free download, and you can feel free to use it as is or try the straw technique or any other way of decorating. Hope you enjoy the video and if you use the printable and share it on social media, please use the hashtags #amytangerine and #fangerine so I can see it!

Flamingo quote

I'm working in Florida helping a client organize years of photos and memories. While taking a little break and reading all the news about Instagram changing their logo, I decided to use the custom designed stamp set for Whim So Doodle (they take phone orders and are happy to ship) and stamp this flamingo. I played with Zig Clean Color markers for the first time and I am thinking I may have to finally take the plunge and get them. So in case you're in need, here is a good reminder...
