I made this banner for my blog from a photo I took in 2003. The web was on my cedar clothesline posts. The full photo has my barn and shed in the back and growth from the encroaching woods.
I love my spiderweb shot. I have been unable to successfully enlarge it so I can see the details of it the way I want.
I read directions on BlogU for using The GIMP for Mac because I love making amazing circles and can't afford Photoshop. Since I wanted my blog to be my blog and not the blog of the creator of the template (but thank you for such a delightful template! I could have never put the colors together so well!), I decided to try making my own banner this past week. I had the photo already: my spider web!
So with my beautiful, magnificent MacBook, my Kodak digital camera, and my free GIMP software I can spend a lot of time learning new skills. I enjoy doing this because it is relaxing after an exhausting, fulfilling day teaching mathematics.
