I'm sure you've all noticed the more seasonal look around here. It was time to take Duke's summer look down and give the old header an autumnal appearance.
I started out with a picture of a leaf and played around with it in myDazzling Reflections program. The original kaleidoscope that I made looked like this.
Then I opened it up in Photoshop elements and did some more playing. I ended up with a block that looked like this.
I pulled one of the colors from the block to use for the background of the header, added some texture and then placed the picture of Duke and the block. Then I erased the edges of both the block and Duke to make them blend in to the background of the header. I finished it up by slapping on the old snap edit scrap and I had a brand new header.
I've been wanting to do a little more with my blog in the way of cleaning it up but I just haven't had the time to sit down and play. I wonder if the boss would mind me taking the day off to play with my blog? Yeah, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't go over too well.
