This is what I got up to. Now don't think that I'm a whiz at Photoshop or Illustrator.
I've had a lot of help along the way from the awesomely talented Shu Daniels who is a true whiz at all things Photoshop.
So, I'm having to submit a web banner I've laboured to put this together.
I'm not going to give the actual time it took me to 'put' this together...but I'm just say this - it took me more than an hour.
