I was hard at work all monday night to perfect the new blog style that you now see!!
My friend Victoria visited me a few weeks ago from California (you can read about that here) and she happens to be a wonderful photographer and took the photo that you now see in my new banner while we were soaking up the local atmosphere.
Here is what I did to create this style from the photo she took:1) I edited the photo in illustrator to create a banner 2) then I made the background just solid white (isn't simplicity the best!?!?) 3) I added pops of dark red in the text (black, grey and red is my absolute favorite color scheme!!) and 4) lastly I changed the font of my post titles to be similar to the text in my banner.
I hope you all enjoy it and let me know what ya think. :)
Here is a glance at what it used to look like.
