An owl is strong and fierce, but they are also solitary, sneaky, hunters. This makes them amazing animals however not exactly the traits I associate with myself as a teacher. So I may be going to deep with this but it something I have thought about. Birds are beautiful communicators, they flock together in teams, and in folklore they are messengers.
It was time for a change, so I have redesigned my blog.
I found this great starter kit on TPT by Lovin Lit. So helpful and the papers are wonderful.
Using PowerPoint with some inspiration from these blog designers A Bird In Hand Designs and Blogs Fit for a Queen I created my Header. Opening pictures and cropping them to size on a landscape paper provided me with just the right width for the blog header background. Next I added some of the frames, Accents from the Lovin Lit Starter kit. Finally I made my own branch on PowerPoint and found some cute birds from Open Clip Art. Making this a family affair my daughter picked the colours for the birds which can be edited online from the Open Clip Art site. Finally I grouped all of the parts of the new header in PowerPoint and copied and pasted them into paint. Once I had re-sized the white page to fit my header I saved it as a picture file ready to upload into my header on the layout tab in blogger.
This was easy...I know that there are better programs that could have done this but this redeisgn used the programs that I already have installed...plus my free trial to Adobe Illlustrator has expired :(
Give it a try yourself...Happy Creating while you Embrace Change!!
