A bit of a make-over

I decided to give my blog a make-over.  I loved the original template but as it was pre-designed it was a bit limiting in what I could do with it.  So I played around for a while, then I found a fabulous site Blogger Sentral which has all kinds of amazing tips and tricks to customize your blog.  After browsing around Blogger Sentral for a while, I realised I wanted an image for my header, so I made a tag.
The more observant among you may realise this is slightly different to the actual header up there.  This is because I stamped the corn advert on to it afterwards!  I coloured a tag with Wild Honey DI which I then splashed with some water to give some interest.  I then played with my Paper Artsy HP1009 plate and stamped the flower head and the birdies in the grass also in wild honey.  I then stamped the flower head again on some card colourd with wild honey and spritzed with gold shimmer mist with Coffee archival.  I then cut out the flowers and layered them on to the tag.  I finished off with some Crafty Individuals birds then photographed it for the blog header.  I then added the Shepard Corn stamp and now I am entering it to the Sunday Stampers challenge week 121.  The theme is movies, so this is Children of the Corn... or maybe The Birds, I'll let Hels decide, lol

Love the tag Kay, love the colours :-) Not heard of Children of the Corn. I wanted to create my own header one time but didn't know how to put my own 'thing' there. You know when you get them from other sites you copy and paste the code, well presumably you need HTML code but how to get that on your own header :-/

excuse brevity - making silk paper and it is crucial I don't stick it to the wrong stuff....

Well of course I adore your new header!! It's fun layering those flowers. I tried similar on top secret project with a few copper ones on top. I'm a magpie I think.
