Well, I am getting a tad better with GIMP so I wanted to create a label for my first batch of homebrew. This is only my second label attempt, but I am somewhat pleased with it so far.

Just wanted to throw it up to get some opinions and suggestions. Thanks!

Slightly too much yellow. Maybe you can incorporate some light or mid tone brown around the outer edge and the circle around the dog that has the "Cricket Amber Wheat" text. I like it though....great job.

Changed up the color just a tad so there wont be as much yellow. I think it was a great change and definitely a good move. Thanks Gregredic for the suggestion!

You could put IBU and ABV information if you have it. Its looking good...I think the color change really helped. Seems like the picture of the dog isn't as pale. Good work.
