91. Chalkboard featuring Arrow  
Layout Style: S2 Flexible Squares
Features: Embedded Fonts, Background Sidebar, Header Image and Background Image
Layout Width: 1000px

All embedded in coding from Google Fonts

Additional Layout Directions:

  1. The header image doesn't have to be used. The layout is using a header image of 1000x300.

  2. Upload Chalkboard image to PhotoBucket.

  3. Chalkboard image direct url from PhotoBucket needs to be added to the following coding sections: blockquote; #header; #sidebar; .userpic, .userpicfriends; .comments; .userpiccomment; .datesubjectcomment

  4. Wood image is too large for PhotoBucket so I recommend using your Scrapbook. Make sure you use the original image url.

  5. For additional help see the Helpful Tutorials list below the images.

What do you mean? If you are looking for me to make you a specific layout I can try if you give me an example of what you are looking for.

I can also customize or change some of my own layouts.

I don't really restructure layouts by other makers.

I also have a lot on my plate so it might take a little time. Let me know.

Wow, this is awesome. I might just use it - not sure quite what I'm in the mood for yet. :)

Lovely job!

Thanks. I'm kind of obsessed with the chalkboard look right now so I had to make it.

If you need my help let me know. *hugs*

Hi, do you take requests for layouts done in Expressive?
Jill aka Josireesanwar on January 16th, 2015 09:15 pm (UTC)
No sorry. I'm fluent in Flexible Squares. I've never even seen the coding for Expressive.

I have a question. For your sidebar, how do you get the text to appear like that? The "things to see" and "About Me", etc. I tried normal, big, bold, etc and nothing is showing up. I feel really dumb lol.

Also is that an Arrow moodtheme? I would love it if you have the link to it or if you made it. :)

Thank you so much!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on February 4th, 2015 11:00 pm (UTC)
It is coded into the above layout.

You aren't dumb it is font that is coded into the layout. This is a tutorial that explains it.

This is the Sidebar Titles coding for Flexible Square layouts....

li.sbartitle {
list-style: none;
color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7);
text-align: center;
letter-spacing: 2px;
font-family: "Homemade Apple", trebuchet ms, arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 22px;
text-transform: normal;
margin: 1px 0px 0px 8px;
text-shadow: 0px 0px 2px rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7);

This is the font coding for the specific font from Google Fonts.

@font-face {
font-family: 'Homemade Apple';
font-style: normal;
font-weight: 400;
src: local('Homemade Apple'), local('HomemadeApple'), url(http://fonts.gstatic.com/s/homemadeapple/v6/yg3UMEsefgZ8IHz_ryz86Kmk7U3V72hKgu0Yds_deA8.woff) format('woff');

You have to have the font coding in your coding to get the "font-family" in the title section to work.

This is no doubt the best base layout for my own design! My thanks to you for creating this one :)

Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 5th, 2015 08:09 pm (UTC)
You are very welcome. I'm especially proud of this one too.

OMG! Thank you so much for all your hard work!

I've wanted to change my style from a basic one for so long, but never understood what other sites were talking about. You made it so easy that I, a noob at coding, could understand!

Thank you so much! ::hugs::
Jill aka Josireesanwar on November 12th, 2015 12:41 am (UTC)
You are so welcome. I'm glad I was able to make it easy for you.

Re: Wood image
I'm glad you like it and that you figured out how to get the image. I wasn't putting the link in just the image but I've started linking them. Sorry it was confusing.
