The Making of a Logo

I have been working on a new online shop to carry my art.  Realizing that I needed a logo, I have been doodling  . . . .  First I thought about using a textile logo, you know, warp and woof of fabric (in the middle section of this page . . . .


But, and since Abigail Jayne is the pseudonym for my art pieces, I thought that the logo should be the initials. I have had fun playing around with some concepts for the letters.

I think I have settled on  an embroidered set of initials, then a photograph that I will tweak with photo editing software.  Here's the embroidery in process:


Here is the photo, manipulated:


Sew . . . . not finished, nor decided on a final product for a logo yet, but having fun with it!!!

That is such a cool idea! I need to fix my shop banner. I make things the size Etsy claims they should be, but the text always gets cut off! I'm not sure what to do about it, but I really do want some text on my shop banner. As for a 'logo,' I guess it's just me! =)

Logos are hard! I don't have one for any of my online stuff, just the names of my shops in cool fonts, haha. Good luck with your final design!
