So LROSE5 and I are doing a collab!!! I know this is not how a typical blog tour works, but we put our own spin on it!
We teamed up in pairs- and we’re doing collabs related to LTBL on our blogs! Be sure to follow the ones you haven’t already so you don’t miss the tour! (Some of the blogs are private, you might have to request access)
This is my SECOND collab with Lrose5!!!! ✨
(You can read the first one here!)
What are we doing for the collab?
This idea was suggested by Diamond! Lrose5 and I will be RECREATING one of our Featured images,blog button and one of our design orders in each others’ designing styles! We make OUR designs look like the other person designed it! there will also be a short description of why we chose certain illustrations, layouts etc.
This is going to be so much fun!!! (Since graphic designing is a category in LTBL and we have a free collaborative design service, we thought we’d do something related to that!) So we’re basically, just copying each other’s designing style😂😂 If you don’t get what I’m saying, just read on…
My designs will be on Lrose5’s blog and her’s here! Let’s get into it!
The parts in bold are mine, the normal ones are Lrose5’s.
Graphic #1 – Blog Button
Lrose5 made her Blog button look I designed it, and here’s the original one (left), and what she made!(right)
“I went to Evin’s blog button page. I did a thin gold wreath around my button and choose a curly font since her’s was curly. I did a bold normal font since that was kinda what she did!!”
Ooh it looks pretty accurate! Although I wouldn’t have chosen that golden circle border because it looks a bit too plain?
Graphic #2 – Design order
Lrose5 and I have our own FREE design services! You can check out her’s over here . We thought doing one of our orders would be fun! This one is an order of a Sidebar image quote graphic.
I choose this graphic because I saw that Evin likes using little circle frames around some of her designs!! I used the swirly for the quote and the other font for the writer of the quote because I think that she uses swirly fonts for the main body of text and normal fonts for little extra words.
I would’ve used flowers in this, for some unknown reason😂 but not that wreath, I just feel like the colors are dull. I really like that font! Even if it is a tad bit swirly.But overall, this looks pretty good!. (I’m trying to be honest here okay?)
Graphic #3 – Featured image
We recreated one of our featured images and here is Lrose5’s Original one (top) and the recreation (below)
I choose this one because I saw that Evin likes using pastel colors in some of her designs. I added the, “what happened this week?” because Evin sometimes does little extra phrases/ sentences in her featured images.
Yess this looks like something I would do! BUT I wouldn’t have included that holo circle.and maybe not those illustrations😜 You are right about the phrases and the pastel colors!! Great job😉👏🏻
And that is it for this collab! I really enjoyed doing it😜🥳🥳
