Blog Header Designs

If you've been following me for a bit you know I've been playing around with lots of blog designs. Well even tho I love how my blog turned out I haven't stopped playing around in Photoshop. I'm pretty beginner at it but I really like doing tutorials for Photoshop and turning them into something that works for me. Over the past few weeks I've come up with these few designs using brushes and some different texture pieces.

The first two I made by following this tutorial the first one I followed to the letter and the second I just played around with the colors and different shapes that came in the brush sets.

The third I used a watercolor texture and then changed the color to my liking and added some brush elements to it.






All of these headers can be found on my Photobucket Account in my Blog Headers Album without the text and in their original 900 x 300 size. Which is a little bit smaller than my actual header and will work with any blog with a minimum width of 900 pixels.

If you would like to use them feel free to all you have to do is go to the Photobucket Album and save the one you like and add your own text to it then upload to your own blog. If you would like I can also add text to it for you just send me an BeautyFlawed(at)gmail(dot)com I do all this for free because I think it's fun and I'm learning so don't hesitate to ask :) Just keep in mind I'm no pro but I do my best.

Anyway I just wanted to share these with you all and get your thoughts on them I'm always doing more so I'm sure I'll post more in the future.

If you know of any good Photoshop tutorials or have any ideas for me let me know I'd love to check them out!

I can't thank you enough for introducing me to PuglyPixel because that site's been A HUGE help! The blog headers you made are really nice too! They don't look beginner at all! Keep up the good work! ^_^

  13. wow, we are actually so bad at decorating our blog and all that...
    Thanks for coming by before! We have a very cool giveaway going on. I think you'd really like it! It's perfect for the summer!

  14. Very awesome! Those are so great for a beginner!

  15. Wow!! These are so good! I wish I were that good at Photoshop! Do you have full PS or elements? I can never do all the "cool" stuff because I have a really old version of elements. I love that 3rd one and if I hadn't just changed up my whole blog a few weeks ago, I'd totally use it. But I seem to change my blog design every few months, so I may use it in the future! <3
