Okay friends. So I've been dabbling in the blogging world for a few years now, and I consider myself to be somewhat computer/tech savvy [OH that phrase...]. Despite this, I've always been a little flummoxed by web design and how to go about it efficiently. I'm taking an online course taught by these wonderful ladies, and it really has opened my eyes to the graphic design and photography world of blogging.
In less than 24 hours, I've learned a massive amount about Photoshop and how to use it efficiently and creatively. I've never taken a formal course on it, and I desperately want to, but BLOGSHOP is making the work I do a thousand times easier and fun! As 'homework' we're expected to practice on our own photos and blogs, which is what I've been doing all day and night. It's rather addictive, I have to say.
I'm testing out different themes for my blog, and likely none of these will be permanent, but I thought I'd share my first one, which happens to be a happy, spring motif. I almost exclusively work in teal and bolder colors, but I thought it would be fun to try a new route for curiosity's sake. Like I said, it's a complete work in progress, but I can already feel myself improving dramatically at web design and Photoshop.
Check out the video below. It's partially what sold me on the course and may just be the most adorable use of tiny plastic animals, ever.
