Young Artist Redesigns Blog!

Have you noticed my new blog design?? Wondering who the artist is??

Here she is... our very own Miss Fabulous!

I "commissioned" some artwork for a new header... and I think she's done brilliantly.

I cut and pasted it all together in Photoshop and made new icons for my sidebar. I figured out how to get transparent backgrounds - a mystery that has eluded me for many frustrating years. Wahoo!

I've also simplified everything and changed back to two columns, so I can make my photos nice and big.

The template is from the new Blogger in Draft Template Designer... very easy to use and customise. I know I will continue to play around with it until I get it just right, but I am very pleased with my little artist and my bright, fun, fresh new blog design.

Thankyou Miss Fab. You truly are FAB. And very clever.

Wow this is just gorgeous! How clever you both are - I can see it becoming a trend also

I use blogger in draft but I haven't been brave enough to try the template designer hence my very plain blog

What a cute idea! But I won't let my Little Miss see it or she'll want to redo mine ;)

Oh god this is just so very lovely. For once i'm wishing i had creative little girls to design my blg, rather than little terror-inducing boys who are currently batting me around the head.
so j-e-a-l-o-u-s.

Looks wicked Simoney, even when viewed from cold old Christchurch! Think I'd better go and put some slippers on! See you next week.

This is brilliant! I am not brave enough yet to try it, but now you've ignited the spark!
When I first got to your page, I thought I was in the wrong place, but like someone else wrote, the new look is perfect for your blog. Well done!
