I was an errant equivocator today. Instead of writing I dilly dallied and delayed writing this post and other pieces while I contemplated moving this blog to triplebottomtimes.com (Don’t ask!) I even created a header for it.
But then as I usually do I quit doubting myself and the wonderful name I have here at reason creek. I just needed to make it look more bloggy and less corporate site-ish.
I used a couple images from the National Archives, one from sxc.hu and another from morguefiles.com, a few more images were from a recently rediscovered commercial set of clip art images that Hubby purchased for me a few years ago. Some of these I had to crop, add a border or remove a background, and in one case overlap a tiny image to make a long ribbon. Two were from a free digital scrapbook kit I downloaded when I was searching for backgrounds before I decided to just to it myself. I did some fill in with textures I had previously made from scratch or by just using my drawing program’s brushes as stamps.
Pretty good for a first attempt at a blog background don’t you think?
