So, I've participated in [ profile] the_lj_reboot and made myself a snazzy layout using only CSS to modify it! Sailor Moon is love.

As for the design, I was (and am) in a rut artistically, but I fell in love with the image. So that got me started. And then I made the background pattern. I knew I wanted something that was more minimalist, so I stuck with a white background and a teal-green color scheme.

Coding the stylesheet was a bit tough. I had I think 3 going at the same time, before I figured out what the problem was and then I figured it out, finally. So I suppose that was my process, in a nutshell. :D

The tutorials by [ profile] grrliz for making CSS layouts are wonderfully helpful. Check them out if you want to make a loverly layouts! :)

ETA: I thought I should mention that IE hates this layout. Firefox is constantly making love to it though.

Spiffy! :D I really like your layout. I'm going to have to browse through that comm to pick up some tips and tricks, I'm tired of LJ layouts.

Thank you! You should check out some of the other layouts, because they are really really great. A lot of them look nothing like livejournal layouts. :)

Thank you (about the screenshot). :D

I know it's terrible. I'm putting a post together for [ profile] s2flexisquares so I can get some help on the CSS. Hopefully I'll get it to work.

That's awesome. (And it does look kinda funny in IE, but great in Firefox.) :) I was tempted to do the LJ_reboot, but couldn't find the inspiration to make a layout. :\
