The best part about starting a new blog? Creating the header!
This time though, I wanted a challenge; I wanted to do something I hadn’t before. While in Journalism school (no, I didn’t finish), I had to purchase a Macbook Pro and Photoshop software! A waste of money? I think not!
So, I went looking for some inspiration and ideas on Pinterest and began the long process of creating a brand-new header.
Do I love it? No, not overly. But it was an accomplishment! With a bit more practice I’ll be able to create something I love, but until then here is a little tutorial of how I managed to make the one above!
I logged onto this site, where they had blog-header backgrounds to use for free!
Then, I used one of my favourite pictures from my trip to Europe as inspiration.
Then, with the help of this site, I cut out the bird, and placed it onto the free header!
Then, I used Zapfino type font!
And there you have it! Oh, and I did some inverting and resizing of the birds, and cursed many, many times.
Have any pointers for my next header? I would like to create the entire thing from scratch next time! HELP!
