As I've mentioned before, I am a person who quite likes changing things.

Be it myself, my surroundings or my blog - I enjoy sprucing things up every once in a while!

This past week I've been working on a new blog header. I'm new to the whole drawing/scanning/photo-shopping your work; so this is all really a work in progress. As you can see, the outcome is above ^^ ... and to the side >>...

I drew the image (possibly quadruple the size actually needed, bad habit) and used the banner within the picture to make widget headers. I quite like the widget headers more than the actual 'portrait'!

I've always liked the look of more personalised, hand-drawn blogs elements and even if the image isn't an exact resemblance - it will do for now! I'm not 100% happy with it (ever the perfectionist) but it is definitely a start! It's something that will at least keep me busy over the summer :)

As an extra - I've uploaded the PDS file of the widget banners with customisable text so you can use them on your blogs too, if you wish! [click to download]. file size 323kb.

Also, I'm going to be working on some social media buttons shortly (bloglovin', twitter, etc), so if anyone has any ideas or would like some kind of specific button to use (hand-drawn) then let me know and I'll share the results.

Hope you all have a nice week! X
