{blog design} Blah Blah Blah - Rants and Raves of a Bum

Tuesday, July 15, 2014


If you've read my previous post on how I love creating blog design for my friends, you'll understand how proud I am with this. 

One of the creations that I have was for my giveaway buddy Istin of Blah Blah Blah. I made this sometime in December of last year.

Originally, the blog was using Blogger's Watermark Template. I didn't changed it though, instead I customized the background.

What I did was I went to search at COLOURlovers  for a pattern that would best fit Istin's blog. Of hundreds and thousand of patterns to choose from, this one is my favorite. I like the elegance of the pattern, it looked like a classy chandelier of a royalty mansion. LOL!

Now for the color, Istin specifically requested to still have her blog in pink, so I customized the pattern using this color palette below.

The blog header was made from scratch using Adobe Photoshop. The fonts that I used were Olivier for the blah blah blah and AR Bonnie for RANTS AND RAVES OF A BUM.

I also made a badge for her blog which can be seen on the blog's left sidebar. It was also used as her Facebook page's profile picture.

Overall, Istin loved the new look of her blog, and I loved it too. I'm so glad that she liked it. 

This definitely won't be the last that I'm going to create. I know I still have a lot to learn when it comes to designing, all it takes is more practice, determination, and a lot of creativity. ^_^
