Thank you to everyone who said they like my new spring header! Deciding on all the colors and getting it just the way I wanted was more difficult than I anticipated–so I’m really glad it turned out okay. :)
The banner picture was especially challenging for me. Especially since (as Tearese pointed out), peach tulips aren’t in bloom right now, so I couldn’t go out and take a picture of my own. And when I looked online for free banners/graphics, there wasn’t anything I liked.
So then I racked my brain for anything I already had that might work and immediately remembered the gorgeous flowers in my wedding pictures with Prince Charming.
(And holy smokes alive–what’s more romantic than having a piece of your own wedding day at the top of your blog???)
So I pulled out our wedding CDs and smiled at my dear, handsome Prince Charming.
And marveled at the breathtaking grounds of the Salt Lake Temple that day.
And then I spotted what I was looking for…..
A small section of flowers that looked like it would work for a banner.
So I cropped that section and sized it to the specifications that Charming told me I needed for a banner.
And then I made mirrored copies of that section and lined them up to fill the whole length of the banner.
After that, I asked Charming to load it into my WordPress theme…..
Gorgeous wedding tulips at the beginning of March! :):)
