New banner/header again

Ok, so this is the latest version.
And how do we feel about it?
Don't know yet how I feel about it. I am not fully convinced.
I need to digest it for a few days.

Love the colors in this! Nothing wrong with the script - I think it is a good balance!

Stacey said...

I love the font...and your name really stands out beautifully. The picture so crisp and clear....really draws you in...

Sally Anderson said...

I love this necklace and I love this color but I think your name is overpowered now. You hardly notice it. I'm not sure what to suggest instead! Sorry.

I like the balance between picture and name....I think it stands out well. Love the photo you have used. Can you get a border around both, so they are one unified thing? I am impressed you are taking so much care over the look of your blog...I am just so cack handed with computers, I can't quite be bothered to make such a supreme effort!

I like the new script spot. And the larger jewelry pic and font size.

Barbara Lewis said...

I agree with Rebecca's comments ... a perfect balance of name and image! :-) Well done!

I like the script beneath the photo, but think it would look better with the white body of your blog page beneath the whole thing (instead of being separated by the gray background). Also, I feel like more of the heart pendant should be visible. Ha! Lots of different opinions again!

Thank you so much one more time! I appreciate all of your feedback. Very useful. And F U N! I like to cooperate like this. It is a clever way of letting your design evolve without you having to go through all the variations yourself. Lot's of ideas to pick from. And different angles. Clever ones. I like that. Almost like a brainstorm.

Now, I am not totally free to design it how I want it. There is a template I have to work with. It was one I chose to work with. I bet you do the same and then add your own little touch. If I was completely free I would do a lot of things differently. For instance I would let the image and the text "Beading by Malin de Koning" come together in a different way. And Rebecca, then I would be putting a lot of effort into it. Now I am only playing around with some settings within blogger's own templates ... Not too hard really. I want it to be a rather quick process. But sometimes that makes it more time consuming in the long run.

I can't do it like that Doreen. Or rather I don't know how with the way this template works ... can't explain really ...

I love it! And I'm so sorry I haven't been around in a while. That show and being sick took it out of me! Hope to be around a lot more frequently now!
