For a while now I have been wanting to personalise my blog background for a more proffesional look that is my own and lately I just decided to go for it. I looked for appropriate pictures to put in the foreground and thought a sketchy-like background would look great in the back. With a few twists and tweaks of the text and colours of my general blog, I think It's turned out really well and I love it as it's all made by me and sort of defines me, my style and what I do.

All the illustrations are my own work and from a project I did a while back at university. They are just 4 pieces out of the collection I designed and were inspired by the theme of royalty.

The sketchy transparent grey/white behind was something I did on photoshop to give a bit of texture to the background.

The whole thing took me about 2 evenings and a day to complete as I had to clean up each drawing on photoshop to make them look neat and defined.

So what does everyone think???? I'd love to know your opinions on it!

Here's a few more pics from the collection


  1. I lurve this, need to do mine now!!! I still think you should print out your own headed writing paper with a similar theme, that would be very cool! xxx

  2. I know, I'm so proud of it! It's a really cool idea to do the printed pages but don't know what I'd use them for? xxxxxxx

  3. To write to me with when you move out :-( xxxxxx
