Version 2: I thought the hand is not necessary so when I redraw the above, I didn't included it, this is done in Adobe Illustrator
As for the colors, it changes a lot, depending what I am thinking or seeing but mostly, I lean toward blues and bluegreens. For the name 'Rainswept,' it just came to me when I happened upon another blog with 'swept' in its name and I decided to put that together with 'rain.' Also, I had many blogs with 'rain' in the title so this works for me.
That's it. The final version of my header but don't depend on it staying around too long as I have a habit of changing it every couple of days or months depending on my mood. (And as you can already tell, I have changed the colors to a more muted blue.) I like to show the in-between steps but there really aren't any except for many similar versions that barely have any differences. Any questions, just ask.
