Betty a La Mode

Past Layouts

Banner Version 1

Version 1 // April 2007 – July 2007 // Sparkles

My first layout, and one of my favourites, it took a few tries to get it just right and this was the end result. I wanted something which made BALM stand out from the other fansites during it’s first few months and it did just that!

Banner Version 2

Version 2 // July 2007 – July 2007 // Retro

Hmmm…. wasn’t too keen on this one, which is why it didn’t even last a week! I was so uninspired that day and the result was a bit rubbish. I love the flowery background though, I may re-use that at some point.

Banner Version 3

Version 3 // July 2007 – August 2007 // Scrapbook

I love this one, it took an age cutting out the pictures and piecing them together, but in my opinion, it was worth it! I was inspired by the Mode ‘Book’ and with the different departments placing their own separate parts of the magazine together.


Version 4 // August 2007 – ??? // Patchwork

When the new promo shots were released for Season 2, I knew I had to make a new banner. The problem was, I couldn’t decide which one to use… so I used all my favourites! Simple, and colourful, I really like it. Oh and I used a great ‘Stitch’ brush to give it a textile feel.
