Take Heart


Life seems to be all about the little things of late.



Details, it's all about the details.



Take heart...



there's one for you.




I seem to be stuck in this mode...
making hearts.




I have changed my blog header, mostly as I have decided to spend some time putting on a more professional appearance.
At least that's the idea anyway.
You will have to tell me what you think. Is it working?
Hopefully soon, a store front where you will be able to buy my art as well.

In the meantime...

remain young at heart.

As a fellow heart lover- I'll never get tired of hearts. We all have them and hopefully, they are kind, and generous and giving- which would mean they are in their true form. And so are the beautiful hearts that you make- the materials and layers and subtle colors are all delicate and so inviting to want to take a closer look and feel!I see hearts in everything! Your banner is great- professional and expressive- everything you can ask for!!

Looks like you might be getting ready for some sewing in Lisa J's book, Kim? The hearts look so tiny and so cute! Your header, of course, is wonderfully Pulpy! Love it and yes, it does look very professional, although your other one was just as gorgeous and professional looking too, you know!

Love, love the new header. It is so romantically elegant, perfect for the wandering heart. I'm looking forward to your store. (Am thinking about taking the plunge myself.)
Your wee hearts are just precious. Am holding one to my heart.

Dear Kim,

I too find myself lately focusing on hearts, so I enjoy following along. Your new masthead image is very professional.

I understand about the need to customize ones Blogger appearance, as it is one I have done several times until I felt I found the right mix between image, type and general flow of the elements on the page.

I would recommend not using center justified for the type as it makes thinks more difficult to read. This would include regular full justification since you are not in control of the spacing and therefore end up with too many gaps between the letters.

Finally, I voice the general opinion of graphic designers that a black background is something we all avoid. There are other options for a dark background that would end up being a nice balance between the images and text. Contact me if you are interested in an alternative.

Wishing you all the best,
Egmont

the first thing I noticed was your new header so it sure grabbed my attention! Looks great. I too loved a black background but kept reading that white was more serious. Go with your instincts. In my opinion the world needs more hearts!
