Redecorating

As you can see I redecorated again. I wanted something a little lighter this time.

For anyone who might be thinking of redecorating I found a site called Colourlovers that has thousands of backgrounds, most of which as far as I could see, free to use with attribution to the creators. The background I used is called Snow-frozen, created by manasijoshi and sunmeadow.

Snow-frozen is a variation on a pattern. At Colourlovers you can make your own background using pattern templates that you can color in yourself.  Another great thing is that if you choose a pre-made pattern the colors used are listed in the pattern, making it easy to match the colors in the Blogger template. Without this feature, this whole thing would be a hot mess. I'm not exactly color blind, but if left to my own devices I would come up with a scheme that would make your eyes bleed.

There are still a few tweaks to be made, I'm kind of iffy on the fonts I chose, but otherwise I'm happy with it.

  1. Looks nice and open. I worry sometimes my blog is too cramped and dark, but I guess it reflects it author, lol.

    1. I orignally chose a very dark background, but I didn't feel like being in that frame of mind everytime I looked at my blog. Sometimes dark is good, sometimes not so much for me.

  3. Love it! It's a very calm color scheme. I used to fiddle around with my blog's look a lot until I found something I felt I could live with.
