blogskins and holidays

in a sense, holidays have started for me since i have no exams. last assignment went in today and i feel awesome.

i am tweaking around with photoshop and making backgrounds so far... jake is tweaking the fine bits of it, usually stuff i dont know how to do. i am not going to be changing this blog look much since i dont really know much about it yet. thing was, i got so frustrated last night trying to tinker with the other blog's html and designs with jake, it got annoying.

and the amount of people who sent in cut and paste types!! i mean, yer i am shit at it, and i really am in no place to comment. to be honest though, what most people did is just shove in a lame pict or too and then add html. its only the html part that i am dumb in. with what they did (erm... e.g stick figures) i can actually churn up something along those lines.

so when i got home today and decided that.. erm, ok let's see if i can throw together some stuff...

i dont remember much from my first photoshop lessons and got really upset. so this was what happened...

first lesson that i learnt from blogskins... cut and paste!!! and then a little of shifting work and voila!!!

oh wells. it doesnt fit this blog anyways >.>

i decided to be a little more hard working and actually use some of the tools that photoshop has, and downloaded some brushes that jaslyn/diorangel (link at the bottom right corner) had linked on her blog, as in her affliates/resources.... and also use bits of her tutorial to figure out how to crop images... then...

simple, but it looks decent. i haven't shoved in buttons or codes or anything yet coz jake is the html guy!!! :P

so anyways, that got me rolling and i tried various other shet that got me all excited... and turn up pictures that i really have no idea what to do with...
