Some of the themes are so cute and adorable. Where do you get all the cutesy Images, Badges, Emblems, Navigation Ribbons, etc., that are used? I'd like to try my hand at customizing something but need to find resources to get those things. I know how to use CSS to "colorize" a theme, but I think I am ready to graduate to using images, etc.
You can try any of the stock sites or search for royalty/commercial use images. I tend to create my own unless it is something really special.
Thank you Jen. Can you tell me what search terms I would use? I do have a Fotolia account. Also what file type would I be searching for?
I purchased my avatar (it's a much larger image) from istock; some of the StudioPress themes which come with vectors (cartoon style images) are also from istock.
For banners and other types of embellishments, you can try googling "digital scrapbook papers". A lot of etsy sellers sell digital imagery.
Or, you can try doing it yourself, using Photoshop, or Photoshop Elements. On my blog, I created my pink navigation bar with the white lace edging, my blog button and social media buttons using picmonkey, a free image editing website.
commercial use graphics, commercial use backgrounds, royalty free graphics, etc.
You can be more specific depending on what you are looking for.
Wow, thanks ladies. I actually love Picmonkey. I was using Picnik until Google purchased them. I will do some research starting today. I want a "cutesy" website. I purchased a brand new domain name and my current business/website is going away. 2013 is going to be a brand new "cutesy" year for me!
Sounds good, Anita - I can't wait to see what you come up with!
