How to make a banner for website
When creating my website, I looked at other websites to see what made them unique. I had a plain html header that looked pretty boring. I decided that I wanted my own logo or design for my site.
I started with the paint application for windows.
First, I used the largest marker to spell out my website name. Then I outlined it with a solid black brush. Next, I used a crayon in a lighter color just to make it easier to read.
I made the background match my sites background color. The paint application was used just to get a rough start.
Then I decided add some cool effects with photoshop to make it look more professional. I wanted it to pop out of the page.
To do this, I copied the text onto a new layer using the lasso tool. My text was dark pink so I used a light pink and used the airbrush on the background layer to go around and underneath the text.
After that, I used the black airbrush to to re-outline the text on the background layer. Putting more black below the text makes it look more 3D, like it is popping up at you.
After I was finished with photoshop, I added to my site with a width of 900 px. The color was slightly lighter than my page’s background so I ended up adding a border to it.
