The Banner

Well, I finally did it. This took so long to make, I can't even tell you. It's far from perfect but it's good enough. I'm not quite done everything I need to do to make my blog design complete but this was the major step.

I got the concept for the "Potterpuffs" from Naomi, who was the originator of the idea. Unfortunately, you can no longer see her original work on her site anymore.

To make the banner, I used Paintbrush (the Mac equivalent for MS Paint). I was way too lazy to figure out anything more complex that this.

To make the Potterpuffs, I used this tutorial and this tutorial.

Love it or hate it?

  3. It's terrific! Must be something in the air just now...I took a notion to re-do my blog design yesterday too. Spent all day on photoshop but finally made something I'm happy with.

  13. Oh my gosh I love your banner!! Seriously, I just burst out laughing (and then had to try to explain why to a non-Potter fan). The facial expressions, the words, using the two HP fonts! My god, could you have made this any better? I don't think so. You are full of win, Aylee. Full of win.

  14. Great job Aylee! I love the little characters, they are too cute. And if someone told me one of my favorite stories was coming to an end, I would have the same reaction she's having:) Love that they're called Potterpuffs. Adorable.
