Celtic Knotwork Creatures

I saw a really fun thing on another blog several weeks ago. There were alternating images loaded below each comment left by the readers. It looked fabulously fun! I have been thinking for a while about how I would like to restyle my comments in a way that is interesting, fun, and sticks with the old-world style of my blog.

I spent a week working out some new knotwork creatures and knotwork patterns to use. A few I scrapped because while they were very handsome patterns, they wouldn’t work with the blog’s style too well.

In addition to the alternating comments, I also noticed author specific styling on a different blog. This idea is something I chose to use as well. Naturally, I worked up a raven knotwork for my own reply comments. Additionally, I chose to switch the direction of this one to balance out the page composition.

Now that I have the design and painting done, I can prep them to work on my blogs background and the web. The next step is rewriting the code, but that won’t take too long. One thing I noticed, once finished, was that all knotwork animals I chose are animal forms of the Celtic goddess Morrigan.

I want to do a couple more simple, non-animal patterns but that can wait a little longer. I still plan to customize the bottom page navigation which I left half worked on, and then set up Pinterest etc.

Hope you are all having a little creative fun this week!
