While it was brilliant to have such a wonderful Easter with plenty of sunshine, it is nice to have a rainy day where I can sit guilt free and play on my puter, tweaking my blog!
First up... changing my background. I found this wonderful site full of free scrapbooking images to use. http://www.pixelscrapper.com/
I spent hours searching, finding different combinations of things I might use. I started off in one direction, and ended up going another totally... but I love the colours of my new background.
While playing with this I discovered that I can make an image with publisher! Save as a jpeg file interchange format. Change dpi to 300. I then used paint to tweak further and help resize my picture.
That done I then set about creating my own button! For directions on how to do this go to this tutorial here
A tip... when making your button picture, resize to 125x125. I had mine too large, and kept getting the dreaded red x!!
What do you think?
I am thinking about having a go at doing the header for my blog, but I kinda like it the way it is now. I like things to be simple, not too much clutter. Will have to wait and see.
Have you tweaked your own blog, or have you had someone do it for you?
