I believe this one is now finished. Although I reserve the right to make some minor adjustments, I'm going to let this rest a while. I think this is the most complex image I have yet attempted and I did enjoy working on this one. Now to get started on something else!

I have been fiddling around with the look of this blog. Like I don't have a million other things I could be doing! And no, I am not trying to confuse anyone, I just have trouble making up my mind when it comes to choosing a template and colors. Plus I thought I'd try adding an image to the header. I'm not sure how well it works this way, but I'm leaving it as is for now. What do you all think?

Ann,

This is a lovely treatment of a complicated subject. Well done. I like the colors and template as well. I keep hoping I'll make the time to add an image to my header!

Ann said...

Thank you Rose! I'm still not convinced I like the header and it was tricky getting the size right. It's still not a good fit but will do for now :) Good luck creating one for your blog! Then you can let me know how to make mine better!

These leaves are lovely. I likeseeing the underside of the leaf, which has its own subtle beauty.
