UNVEILING THE NEW DESIGN

20 July 2015

I know you have eyes but I love my new design and MEGAN's wizardry skills need to have a sole post for them to be appreciated fully. Also of note are: the sidebar image, done by this artist who kindly let me use the image of the crab she drew (why a crab? my star sign is a cancer, plus it fitted with the colour scheme and is the sassiest crustacean i've seen in a while). In addition, the hand-lettering of the blog title and sidebar 'hello' were done by yours truly, as were the footer and header patterns of orb/geometric type shapes (which you can actually buy prints of in my shop). All my pages are fully updated (except two/three) and I have a few more new pages:
I have completely new categories which may not have many posts linked to them (yet) but I have *lots* scheduled: shutter happy (photography), field notes (travel), creARTive (all things creative), read + reviewed (book reviews + everything else bookish), the art collective (mainly to do with outside inspiration and featuring other creatives e.g with interviews), collections (wrap-ups etc), stories (lifestyle) and miscellaneous. New features are on the way too!: sketchbook stories, the creative process (and I think a few more I can't remember the names for--)

  3. Oh my goodness, what an absolutely gorgeous design! I'm loving the simple colour scheme and the hand-lettering (gives it such a lovely, personal feel) - although, let us be 100% honest, that crab has got to be the best part. ;) I'm so excited for everything you'll be unveiling soon! xx
