So, I'm kind of getting bored with my generic blogger blog background. . . any of you have any tips for adding a bit of flair to my blog? Some of you use pre-made blog backgrounds - I've had bit of a look on "The Cutest Blog on the Block" - they've got some gorgeous designs, but somehow, none of them seemed "right" for my blog. You see, I like the paintings and pictures in my posts to take centre stage - colourful, detailed backgrounds may look nice but they might draw attention away from the pictures. I don't want anything too crowded or busy -- very simple but also pretty and elegant is what I'm after, I guess.
Some of you design your own blog backgrounds. How do you do it? What's involved with making your own blog design?
I suppose something quick and easy I could do would be to find a picture and add to my blog title at the top of this page. But first I'd have to find the right picture. . .
Any of you have any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
