New template


Funnily enough, I was on my other blog last night changing the header because I thought it was looking a bit tired. Then I saw that Katherine, of Making a Mark had posted some links on Twitter regarding Blogger's new templates. What a coincidence! I think these ones are much more 'me'! But what do you think - are they OK on the eyes? Initially Sketches by Fiz had a black background which I quickly changed to a dark grey. Even so, I still felt it needed to be a shade lighter but I couldn't find the exact thing I had in mind. Oh, but I like this brown, especially with my brown paper portraits!

Anyway, I'm still feeling my way around - the posting template and the HTML is different and I'm not sure it will publish the way I like it, but I think I've settled on these two backgrounds - I have a lighter one for Felicity's Philosophies.

Hmm, I think this will inspire me to get drawing again! In the meantime, here is Alex when he was younger looking cute!

Yes, it looks good Felicity, and it's good to have a change anyway isn't it? Those warm browns will set off your portraits very nicely I think! Your Alex was indeed a little cutie - butter wouldn't melt no doubt!! ;)

Thanks Carolyn - classy is a great word!

Thanks Casey!

Thanks Janet! I'm glad the feedback is positive so far. Yes, Alex was a cutie and as sweet as he looked - 'course that's just my unbiased opinion! ;)

The dark brown looks great, Felicity. I love love a dark ground on a blog - now I'm tempted to go template shopping myself.

Little Alex is extremely cute too.

felicity,
this innocent looking boy is captured fantastically by you...
the look, the color everything is fine...
a little blue shade in the background also is giving a good effect...
just like the new brown template...
congratulations...

A gorgeous drawing of Alex!

I LOVE the new Template Designer! It's so easy to use and gives a great variety of options for each template. I love the colours you chose for your blog.
