Ready-to-go-Blog Banner

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Original Color Palette

Other Color Choices

Do you ever find yourself in a 'groove' in what you are choosing to create? This past couple of weeks I've returned to a passion to create blog banners. I know occasionally I benefit from seeing something complete before I decide to buy it. Or, at very least, I need to see examples of other similar items. So my thinking is that if I feel that way, it's probably true for other artists, and it may be particularly key for artists because of the visual focus many have.
Viola's kindness of providing a free image (the stately woman that appears in the left hand side of this banner) inspired the other 30 plus images that went into creating this digital banner.
Different shades of greens and turquoises mixed with golden hues became my color palette and it is one of my personal favorites. But, I also am fond of the other palettes I created after I finished the digital composition.

The above image is an example of how the banner might look in context with a background and coordinating sidebar images. (I think it's better viewed large)

This banner will be available on Etsy later today and ready for customization. Thanks for visiting.

Love this banner! In fact, I love it in all the colours - I wouldn't be able to choose just one, that's for sure!

This is really beautiful! I would buy it if I were in the market for a banner!
