One person noticed my new "banner", thanks mimoo. In fact I have tweaked the whole color scheme on the blog. It's easy to do on Blogger, just customise (top right button on your blog), then go to fonts and colors.
I found this really cool color website (via The Storque on Etsy) where people/designers create new colors and color palettes. Other members vote on them to drive them up the hot list.
Each color is listed with its HEX # and RGB (red, green, blue) mix. I'm no expert but all I did was copy the color HEX # that I liked and paste it into the fonts & color section on blogger (one at a time).
Take a look at the site, it's fantastic. I like the trend section on magazine covers best : Colour Lovers
