I’ve been looking at blog banners today, or I guess I should say this morning, since it’s 1 a.m.
Wow!! Some of them are so fun and creative!
After seeing so many incredible designs I HAD to try to make a new one. Can’t sleep anyway.
This one is composed of digital scraps I already had scanned into my computer. I played around with them, arranging them in a different ways.
Some pretty vintage looking paper with roses and a torn edge…
A Carl Larsson sketch on the left…
A silhouette of Charles Dickens’ lovely wife…
… and a sample of Dickens’ original draft of Nicholas Nickleby on the right as well…
I layered all of those nicely in a row and then doodled on them, adding a US flag, heart, necklace, red scribbles,etc.
I really like how the colors turned out.
Speaking of colors, I’ve noticed something lately about the “super-bloggers” I peek in on.
Not only do they have incredibly awesome banners, but their post photos color-coordinate with their banners! How do they do this? Planning ahead, I guess, or editing every single photo. Wow.
Well folks, I am due to have a baby boy today, but there are still no signs of his arrival.
Hope you are enjoying all the book recommendations lately. I have just enough energy to walk over to my bookshelf, pick an art book I love, and share it with you.
I’ve got another one coming up, but if you don’t see it the next day or two, you’ll know why.
