Next I like to gather my resources that I want to use for my designs. There is a lot of free cute stuff out there believe it or not that I have come across myself. Not too long ago I did a post with full of free recourse to help design your blog or site. You can check it out HERE. Here are a few more links that have free fonts and graphics. Angie Makes, We Lived Happily Ever After.
1. Get inspired- Look around on the net and see what others are sharing or doing. You don't have to take their designs, but you may see something that will spark an idea. Right now seems Arrows, Deer Antlers, Gold and Watercolor designs are in at the moment. Rember that just because someone else or everyone else is doing the same thing don't mean you can't do something completely different.
3. Once you have your recourse downloaded and ready to go, the last step is to take a deep breath and put it all together.
