[personal profile] write_in_red

I always have these grand plans of what I am going to do for my layout...I do. And they are gorgeous in my head.

I took the stylesheet for this layout from [personal profile] sunrisetr here on DW. It was a lovely layout. But I really wanted a winter header. And since I had just fallen in love with the animated banner that [livejournal.com profile] lusaly just posted, I was not to be swayed.

So I got it in my head that I could adjust the layout to have a banner and change the color scheme to fit what I wanted...

Why can't I just be satisfied with what I have? huh? Beats me...

To begin I save the banner and upload it so I can put it on my page. Yea. I managed to find the right bit of code and its done...except its only about a 1/4 of an inch big... I go change the pixels till I find a happy medium, but now its repeating...grr...ok. I'll come back to that...

But now I want the colors to go with the banner. Color chart here I come. I pick out a pretty blue and a ghostwhite color and go to town changing colors in the code...one at a time and refreshing a separate tab to see what it changed...lol. It was ridiculous.

I've made some headway, but I can't finish the rest of it, because I made myself promise that I would go to bed at 4 a.m. I have to be at the store at 8, or I would continue on my way. I may only get 3 hours sleep, which is sadly par for the course, but I like what I did so far.

Go me.
