A New Banner

I don't normally stay up this late, but I forgot my sheets were in the washer so now I'm waiting until the final tumbles are done.  In the meantime, I'm having a little fun with PS Elements and trying to figure out how to get a pic sized right for a banner.  Normally I use Picnik and it's really easy to resize things.  This was a little more challenging, but I think I figured it out!

Here's the photo it started from:
And here's the end product:
You may ask yourself, "Why would Jen put a copy of the banner in the post when it's right there at the top of her page?"  Well, I'll answer by telling you that my mom is at least one of my fans and she sees my posts via a daily email, so she wouldn't know what kind of "banner" I was talking about unless I make it crystal clear.  haaaaaaaaaaaa

It looks a little squished, but I think it'll work for now.  I'm taking a Skinny-Mini photoshop course with Kim Klassen, so hopefully I can figure out the measurement stuff along the way.

Happy Friday!


  1. Love the new banner! I love the colors and how you used the tree from the photograph, awesome!

  2. I always love your banners..glad you showed it, though, cuz I use reader and don't always see the background and stuff, unless I come in and comment :)

  3. Love it! And so sorry not to see you in the BSBP line up!


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
