~ imaginary blogs

I've been back at it... experimenting with mosaics and inspiration boards. I've actually been creating blog banners for imaginary blogs... just for the fun of it. I was becoming a bit smug about my blog banners and actually thought, "I should be a blog banner designer!" But then I realized I was a blog banner designer, (hence the following blog banners) except I am not getting paid for these services. The boasting ceased rather quickly as reality sunk in... I am just a regular blogger, designing banners for my own entertainment... a bit ridiculous.


Nevertheless... here are a few of my creations...

Peaches and Cream


Purple Haze

Hot Pink


Citrus Central

Magical Mackenzie-Childs

Orange Obsession

Just in time for Mosaic Monday!

I love your banners, especially the one you are currently using, but Orange Obsession is a knockout.

How wonderful to be able to design banners. Wonderful they all look. My favorite is the bottom one,maybe because it has beautiful tulips and the colour is awesome.

You are SO funny! I love what you've done here. All are delightful. And, I love the names you've given them. Maybe you could be a blog "header designer."
