hand draw your own blog header

 

heres the flowers i drew 

once your drawings have dried, scan them to your computer, and crop around the image, then upload them to fotoflexer to make the back ground of the images transparent so that then can be put togther

 to do this go to decorate, then click on fill and click the transparent box hen click the background area of your image
 now you can put the images togther to create a collage for you header and add text
it doesnt matter if you are not great at drawing you could always trace the outline of something then paint it your self.

  9. This is a great tip! I'm playing with changing my header but am hesitant to do it. I've grown attached to what I have. Maybe if I can make it more personal, like this, I'll take the leap. Thanks for sharing at Etcetorize this week!

  11. OH my goodness! I was just admiring your blog header a few weeks ago. I absolutely have wanted to learn how to use my own drawings and paint them in illustrator, but I think this might save me a TON of time.

  15. I found you from the create and share linky party. You are very artistic. I will have to trace my own pictures or people will think I let a preschooler do it. :) I didn't know about Fotoflexer. I need to check it out. Thanks for sharing!
