I see so many pretty backgrounds on blogs and was wondering how could I do that. I would love to design my own and put it on my blog.

Sorry for not responding to your post until now....Today was my youngest son's birthday...He turned two, so I have been quite busy....

Anyhow, I would be glad to help you. Can you tell me what program you are using for graphics? Personally, I use Photoshop and Fireworks to create my backgrounds. Photoshop is much better in my opinion. The best way I have found to create them is to use brushes. You can create a new layer, lighten it's visibility, add layer styles, etc. You can also take a photo and create some very interesting tricks with it.

Exactly what kind of background are you looking to create?

A few of my friends like to go to The Cutest Blog on the Block - Free Blog Backgrounds, layouts and more! and they have easy tutorials and also premade templates you can work off of AND it's free. Hope that helps!
