A wreath banner

Recently, the lovely Nat from Modern Buttercup contacted me about updating her blog banner to give her blog a new lease of life for the summer! Of course I said yes! If you've been following my blog for awhile you'll know I gave her blog a makeover a good few months ago now, it was my first go at a bit design work that wasn't for my own blog, so I was quite nervous about making everything just so, I learnt a lot, including how to make a roll-over nav bar which was impressive even for me! ;) 

For her new banner she wanted something light and floral, a sweet summer wreath. After she showed me a few examples I got to work drawing lots of flowers! I had initially wanted to draw and paint it all by hand with my watercolours, but as I drew so many flowers separately to put together in photoshop, I ended up colouring it digitally with my tablet for a change.
I then had a nightmare with my scanner not cooperating and pencil lines turning out pure black, but after  fixing that, everything was smooth sailing and the wreath came together quite nicely! :)

If anyone's looking for any design... things, I'm free for the summer so send me an email! I don't do full blog designs, more mini make-overs .. much more affordable!

Hope your weekend is starting off well!!

P.S. Can you see the last tab? I had to google how to print screen on a mac because I forgot, what a fail!

    That's such a lovely design. I'd definitely be interested in a new header! How much would you charge for one?xxx

  2. I love your blog, it's adorable!
    And the wreath is beautiful!
    New Follower!

  3. Hi Emily!
    It depends on what you're after in the design, whether there's hand drawn illustrations or just digital design & text, it would be no more that £15 for a header with 2 revisions :)

  4. Aw gosh, thank you so much!
