Experimental Banner

I'm experimenting with a few pictures in Google's Picasa. How's this shop banner? I'm trying it on in the shop for a while... if you have thoughts, feel free to be honest - I want to know if I look fat in these jeans!

Your link didn't work for me but I looked at your E shop and I LOVE your new banner. Very contemporary and tasteful. Good choice.

Sue, thank you so much for your comment - both on the banner and the link. I've found that Blogger isn't the friendliest for publishing; it has a lot of quirks, and screwing up links is one of them. Anyway, thank you for the kind words on the banner. :)

it looks wonderful in your shop. very tasteful. (full honest disclosure, the hanging ellipse kinda bugs me.)
but the overall feeling is perfect.

for your blog, i think it needs a bit of a border so it doesn't blend into the gray background. and i think the words "the blog" should move over to the right a hair so they're more over the silver, as in your etsy banner. and strangely enough, the hanging ellipse might work in this circumstance. or something like parenthesis or brackets around the blog.

the blue and gray is a great tone for you. much love. (hope you don't mind my critique!)

e: Thanks so much for your thoughtful reaction. I really do appreciate your comments. I hear ya on the hanging elipse and moving "the blog" to the right. I'll futz with it next time I get a chance. I'm a little frustrated with Blogger in terms of the title formatting, and if I could get to where I want it, I wouldn't have the border problem. But I'll play with that, too.

Again, thanks!
