New Look with little complications

Today I started a project: New header for my Blog.
I had an idea and was so full of enthusiasm. I started to make the little bookworm and wanted to color it with Photoshop. But after an hour I had to admit that I'm a real nitwit concerning this program and was in great need of a coffe break. Good recovered I searched for an alternative for PS and found Gimp. That was my savor. It's really handy and self-explanatory. I just love it.

After completing my bookworm I had this big hole on the left side so I started searching again and found this wonderful picture af a girl on top of a weighted companion cube. For all the people who don't know what a weighted companion cube is, it's a running gag from the video game Portal (Great game!!!). The picture is of an artist named Sailor Bob .

When this mission was accomplished I remodeled the rest of the Blog a little and now I'm happy with it again.


Yesterday Donna has given me a Heartfelt Award.
It's my first one and I'm really proud.
The blog nominating I have to postpone to another day because it's really late and I have to think about it.
But thanks again to Donna.

I love the new header. :) I have absolutely no idea how to do anything related to paint or paint shop pro or anything else like that. LOL I was very fortunate to have a wonderful lady offer to spruce up my blog for me. :)

You did a wonderful job - the book worm is fantastic. :)

Best to you,
M
