I am hoping to sign up to some online courses in the near future to delve into the realms of web design. So far I have just googled whatever I want to try and do to learn as I go along. But as I don’t really understand the basics very well, it is very time consuming!
Today I managed to change the header for my website.
I downloaded a transparent pattern from Patterific.com (too many goodies to choose from – I definitely be returning to this site!), and used Photoshop Elements to make it into a pattern. I tried to work out how big the header in the Elegant Grunge theme was, and created a new file in Photoshop the same size. I then used the pattern stamp (and the new pattern I had created earlier), and filled the whole image. I then made the layer more transparent, and added text (Nicola Keegan) in a font that I have used for my watermark.
What do you think?
It’s very satisfying to learn something new – even if it’s only a small thing! I can’t wait to learn more 🙂
