WIP + Giveaway winner (charleneajose x Paradise Treats)


Hello everyone! Since I have nothing interesting to post today, here’s a sneak peek of a banner I am working on for a client. A third of the requests I get nowadays are for blog banners. Most of you do not know, but the reason why I started making personalized layouts (I started with Friendster!) was that I wanted a profile layout that I can call my own. That said, I always make sure each and every banner I create is unique, while still keeping in mind the client’s request, of course.

The banner above is a first for me, mainly because I used a very unusual medium - lip gloss! My client asked me to make a banner using a font that resembles letters written with lipstick, and since all the fonts I found didn’t appeal to me, I decided to make my own. I did try making the same one using lipstick though, but the end product just turned out too messy and the lines were too thick. So there you go! Haha! :)

My mind at night > My mind in the morning

It always baffles me how much more effective I am during the night than during the day. If you know me well, you should know that I don’t function well in the morning. This covers the way I review my notes and reading materials for school, writing down a blog post and of course, making layouts. (It’s currently 2:27am right now. Haha!) So anyway, here’s a quick post to show you guys what I’ve been working on recently! I’ve been neglecting my layout maker side these past few weeks due to school works and other agendas and I am not lying when I say I really miss it. Making layouts isn’t only an outlet for my creativity (and source of income LOL!) but also a way for me to de-stress. As I always say, I am and will always be first a layout maker. :)

I make layouts! Please view this link for my portfolio. Send an e-mail to chrlnajose@yahoo.com if you’re interested in knowing my rates.

And now comes the time when I have to think of a clever way to end this post because it’s time for me to hit the sack! I have this love hate relationship with PM duty but I’m really thankful that I can stay up late and still get a full eight hours of sleep (which I seldom get now. Ah the life of a nursing student!) Thank you so much for reading and have a good night! :)

P.S. Happy Birthday to my Papa! I know you read my blog (hehe) I love you! <3
