As you can see at the top, my header for Thrifty Momma Ramblings is finally complete! My wonderful and talented hubby drew the lady for me, and I painted her in Photoshop last night and this morning. I had her in a blue dress, but it reminded me too much of a maid or a waitress as hubby commented. I recolored her dress this morning in a pink which matches the blog colors. It’s a little bright, but hey it’s completed. It’s not perfect, but it only cost me $120 for the Photoshop program off Amazon. I purchased the student version plus I had a discount from Amazon. I will need it for class I’m taking soon for school. I am really learning a lot by looking for tutorials online.
I did get many quotes from other designers, and I would have easily paid $150+ for what I did myself. Luckily my husband has artistic talent otherwise I would have paid someone else. It was a pain learning how to color it in photoshop, but I am much more comfortable using this program. I always wanted to be a graphic designer, but now I think I’ll pass on that dream. I am very proud of how it turned out overall, and will probably tweak it some more later. Now I need to work on my background, but that will have to wait until my spring break. I have 2 papers to write for next week, study for my exam tomorrow, and take another exam next week. Whew! I was having way more fun designing my blog header. I just wanted to do a quick update.
My new slogan is: cuz paying full price is for suckers! I wanted something catchy and different with a bit of humor.
What do you think of the new logo?
