My Etsy Banner

A while back I blogged about tutorials on blog and Etsy banners and headers. Yesterday I finally took a few minutes to work on one. It's not the best in the world, but it didn't take a really long time either. I suspect that it will be like my business cards, which have a photo that changes all the time.




The background is from one of the sunset photos that I took last week. I solarized it so that the colors were more green. You can still see the electrical lines that ran across one side of the page. I guess I could have taken them out but I don't mind them. The rest is the picture from my avatar and basic brushes and text from photoshop elements.

Next up, the blog header.

Looks great Leslie. I said I was going to make one for my etsy shop after reading your posting on banner but yet to start :) Better get to work on it soon.

Thanks Martha & Mei. I think I'm going to add borders around the picture and the banner. It's not so intimidating now that I've done one.
