Hello! Here I have a few pictures that I took at a river behind my nana's house. :) Unfortunately they're slightly out of focus because it was windy though, but it's alright.
I've been trying out a few more editing techniques recently, and on these photos I added a couple of filters and on a couple of them I added a light sun flare, to make it look more summery. I'm not going to edit my photos this much in the future, but y'know, it's fun to every once and a while.
Oh, and I have also updated my blog design! I know, I didn't have my last one for long but it felt like it wasn't very 'me.' I'm extremely happy with this new one because it looks a bit cleaner and colourful. The other one just seemed a bit dull.
Anyway, have a great weekend! Sorry for not posting in a while. x
First, you need to come up with ideas on what colours, textures, and patterns you'll want to include in your design. Do as much as you can to find them! Go flick through your favourite magazines, pick a piece of clothing out of your closet which you think has a cool colour, texture or pattern. Or, you could even just take a step outside and find textures and colours you like, for example leaves, flowers, buildings, the sky, etc. And, of course, there's your best friend google to help you out with ideas.
Then, think about creating your colour scheme first, and come up with a palette of around 3 or 4 different colours that work well together and compliment each other.
Next, think about texture. You don't really have to include this, but sometimes it can add slightly more uniqueness to a blog. It's the same with pattern, too.
Another technique to use is just finding a symbolic object that you can use to add some uniqueness to your blog too. :)
Now it's time to put your ideas together, and the best way to do this is to sketch what you'd want your blog to look like. Try sketching loads of different ideas for headers, sidebars, etc using the schemes you put together on the last step. Then, you're ready to put it all together!
Usually when I create my designs, I play around with my plans a bit and improve them. Try to experiment and create a few samples to choose one out of and improve for a final product. Then you're all set to start getting into the computer-y html stuff with blogger.
So, I hope this post helps and that you guys enjoyed it! :)
Have a great wednesday. :) I'm going to go to a sleepover tonight and it's pretty much just a minecraft marathon for the whole thing which will be fun. No, we aren't nerds at all. ;)
ps. I actually just noticed while editing that the background actually doesn't look too appealing, so yeah, just to let you know that the brown stuff is rust, not what it looks like haha.
Have a great rest of the week and I hope you guys like the little fashion twist on things around here. :)
