Wow! Your banners are fantastic, especially the way you use lighting effects and text. And that sig you have is so haunting and mysterious. Beautiful work!

Hey! :D


I just wanted to pop by your gallery and say hello. The first thing I noticed was this banner which is so cool and modern. I love the colour scheme and how you've composed it. The text is such an integral part of the banner and it all works so well. I love that style. The same with this banner. The red is so dramatic and adds such a great element to the rest of the graphic. Those two are my favourite graphics by far and I love that style. 


You're so talented. I can't wait until you update again!

Hey Kristina,


So I've looked at your gallery at least a hundred times since BBLB started (especially during the bowdown mini challenge) and I keep wanting to comment and then chickening out because I just don't even know where to start. I feel certain that I've already told you at least 50 times what a wonderfully talented artist you are, but I'm here to tell you again. You are so talented. I just can't even get over how lovely the things in your gallery are. 

Some of the highlights:


this I love the purple coloring on this banner and I think in general this is some really strong texture use. Everything flows really well and this stood out immediately as I looked at your banners,


this You already know I love bright colors. This jumped off the page at me. Aside from that, there's something really pretty about the soft and the structured being mixed together with the texturing on the left and the gridlines on the right.


this So this was actually the piece that inspired my bowdown mini challenge graphic. It's a lot darker than your other stuff, but it's so lovely. The stock use is really good and you layered all of the different images in a really interesting way.


Normally, I would try to leave a small bit of concrit in a gallery review, but I honestly don't have anything to critique here. My only thought is that that beautiful banner you made the other day with Lupita on it should be in here. That was some really stunning texture use and it's quite a bit different than your other banners.


All in all, gorgeous work. I'm so lucky to have had such a talented artist as a partner for BBLB and I hope you know just how much your graphic work inspires me to keep improving.

i saw your post in the last creation thread and had to stop by!

everything you're doing here in just magic, wow. the lyra malfoy banner has to be my favorite- what a fun and creative use of more "normal" fonts to great effect! i can't wait to see more of your stuff around!

Hey Kristina!

I’m here to drop off a bit of holiday love on your gallery!

First, I wanted to just take a moment to say thank you for taking the time this year to help me learn how to graphic. I wouldn’t have made it through this process without you and I really appreciate all of your kindness and patience.

I’ve really seen a big jump in your work over the last month or two. I notice a sort of distinct style developing with your silvery coloring and the soft, blended textures. It’s really lovely.

One of my favorite things in your gallery is your bluff header in your other section. The comp is really pretty and I like how you mixed in some warm colors with the silvery colors.

I’ll be back in the new year to check out all of the pretties you add to your gallery!

Wishing you happy holidays and a new year filled with all of the awesome things you deserve! :hug:

Someone I recognize!! Hello! Kristina, you are so amazing  :loves:   I absolutely adore your style. Everything is so soft and intricately composed, and I am amazed. +This is just gorgeous. I can't get over the coloring, it's stunning. And the comp on +this is so so good. Your chapter images are mad cool too. I've always been horribly confused by that shape, but you definitely aren't. I just really love the way you compose all your graphics. The way you draw attention to people's eyes is particularly unique and I am a big fan (especially the way you did it +here, plus the text is dope). So yes. You are v talented and I will be waiting patiently for more pretties from you! 

P.S. I'll fight u for that member title :P



i'm kara and i'm klutzy, obviously
