New layout

Hi folks!

I know I'm a terrible insanejournal friend right now, but my life is pretty stressful at the moment, and I don't have the free time to write and participate in my journal. :( I wish I could change that, I really miss the online world.

Today, though, I had some time left and went looking for a new journal theme I could use, and I found a theme that I like very much! This time it's a brighter one.


+ Thanks for the layout basic codes go to passing_girl.
+ Modifications made by [info]reijamira. I used some handy codes and resources by passing-girl, s2flexisquares and julzroguenine.
+ The pretty Supernatural mood theme I currently use at my insanejournal was made by the talented [info]causette.

Oops, I did it again...

... I got myself a new layout! Muhahah, it's really getting a regular thing for me to change my layout every now and then. But I can't help it, really. I keep seeing all these beautiful layouts and I'm thinking to myself 'Hey, that would look great in your journal. You need a change, anyway.' At least, this time, I kept the header. :)

New Layout & Header

Finally, after hours of working on my very first header, I'm pleased enough to use it for my new journal layout. Of course, I made a Grimmjow/Ichigo header because I'm utterly in love with these two Bleach characters, so a Grichi header it had to be. The header is by far not perfect, but for my very first one it is precious to me! :) I like it. This time I wanted to have a lighter layout. I've grown a bit tired of my past darkish one. I also made the fonts a tad bit bigger than in my previous layout. I hope it doesn't look wonky in other browsers! I only have Firefox 2 and it works fine with it.

Enough talking, on to the credits:

New layout and sharing a Grimmjow background

Whoohoo I finally finished working on my new Grimmjow themed layout! Har har. This time I used basic codes by minty_peach. In other words I took this particular layout and modified it to my wishes.

The biggest problem I had to work out, was how to get some of my backgrounds transparent. I tried it with opacity, but it didn't quite work out the way I wanted it to. That was where the LJ community s2flexisquares came in handy. I searched through it and found a helpful entry.

How to reach transparency on entry backgrounds:
Basically you can reach transparency by creating a color filled image in PS, setting it to 80% opacity and then lay it on top of a transparent background. Merge the layers, save it and upload it to an image hosting site and then use that image as a background. That's it. Really simple, ne?!

I only tested the layout in Firefox, my sister told me it looked fine in Opera too. I don't know what it looks like in other browsers though. That's why I'm asking you, if you use a different browser, could you please tell me if the layout looks like this or somehow wonky? That would be absolutely lovely of you!

Oh and I also made my very first wallpaper/background. I always wanted a Grimmjow layout and I loved that sexy silhouette!Grimm image ever since I first saw it, so I thought why not make a background from it.

I like to share:

Layout under construction!

If you happen to visit my journal right now, you may find it all wonky and messed up, that's because I'm currently working on it!

Please ignore this. It's merely there for some testing.

Italic text looks like this

This is a bold text.

Hi! I'm a blockquote!

BLEACH goodies: 10 icons/animations & screencaps

Yesterday I changed my layout. I really needed a change and I was in the mood for a darkish layout. So I made myself one. I'm pretty satisfied with it. For the background I wanted to have some sort of texture and after fiddling around with the PS filters I came up with something that looked fancy enough for my liking. I was a bit sad that I couldn't use the black font color for my entries because when I tested it it was really difficult to read people's posts. So I had to change it to a lighter grey that is much better on the eye and I really like it that way. If you took a look tell me what you think, would you? :)

Today I made some animated icons. I always wanted to learn how to make those. It was really fun working on the gif's. I intend to make more in the future. This time there are only three of them and all are from Bleach. Bleach is such an icon-able anime. I remembered those two scenes from the earlier episodes where Renji and Ichigo had those awesome slashy moments (Well they have them quite often in my opinion. *g*) and I always wanted to icon these scenes. I hope you like the results as much as I do.

And last but not least I also want to share my Bleach screencaps from episode 02, 03 and the Opening & Ending caps part 1.

It's Bleach goodie time. ^__^

First of the screencaps.

And now on to the icons.

New layout and birthday wishes

Ah finally I finished working on this layout. Took me 2 days! The basic codes are by the talented passing_girl @ LJ.

I applied the layout to my LJ at first, then, because I quickly fell in love with it, I wanted to have it here at my IJ as well. Only problem was that passing_girl wrote this layout for Smooth Sailing. Here I use Flexible Squares, which I grew really quite fond of.

And I didn't want to switch my IJ back to Smooth Sailing either, because Smooth Sailing tends to mess up the comment page whenever a thread gets rather long. Some time ago I found a great code for Flexi Squares to pretend this on s2flexisquares @ LJ. I'd rather not miss out on these codes.

Well, as it was, I had to re-write passing_girl's codes so that they would work for my Flexi Squares layout.

What a strain but it was worth it! Now I have a new and very shiny layout which fits so perfectly to my Sam and Dean header. Awww and the sidebar. I love it. I never had a layout like this before. Whoot!

But enough with the incomprehensible babble, on to more important things.

Today I want to wish two of my friends a very happy birthday!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Party hard, guys! :)

Info and a poll

Okay, so I've changed my layout. Again. Yeah, I know this is some odd habit of mine, but now I'm pretty pleased with it. It's lighter than the one I had before. I think I will add a background pattern and some fancy stuff, like link-decorations, but in penny numbers, I don't want to overdo it.

Here on IJ I modify my layout with a theme layer. Yay, now that I have a permanent account, I can do this. Over on LJ I only ever have had a free account. Oh dear, I actually wanted to upgrade to a paid account shortly before LJ went mad and all. Thank god I did resist!

Anyway, before I got myself my first journal ever on LJ one year and a half ago, I hadn't known one tiny bit about CSS, coding, html and the like. Then I got my account and started messing around with my layout pretty soon after that. It's just that I must have a shiny layout or else I won't feel "at home". *lol* So, I actually googled like a lunatic, went here and there, did this and that, made a whole lot of mistakes, and somehow, after some time, I got the hang of CSS, at least so much so that I won't stare like forever on a stylesheet without knowing what's it about. Go me.

Then [info]only_gremo and [info]mllesatine gave me this permanent account as a birthday present two months or so ago, (Oh dears, I can't thank you both enough for that! &hearts &hearts), wich opened a whole new world of coding to me: the theme layer. Yep. And even though you can put a CSS sequence in it; which I, as I said, am quite familiar with; there's also that other stuff I don't even know how it's called. I guess it's html coding, but I'm not sure. Anyway, my point is, I have yet to get the hang of it. It looks (and I think it certainly is) a lot more complicated than simple CSS. I hope it won't take me too long to understand.

Anyway, my current layout is also modified with that complicated coding stuff. It's mostly because I found this great LJ community called s2flexisquares where you can find codes for all sorts of things you wish to adjust, change or whatsoever.

However, I don't even know why this post got so long in the end. I just wanted to inform you about my new layout. I'm not even sure whether you guys read this in the first place... erm yeah, whatever...

I'm also entertaining the idea of posting more of these tutorials/how-to/helpful stuff guides. I really enjoy writing these and I hope they will help others in some way or another. Maybe I should make my first random poll about that?! ---Yes, I should do this...

So here it comes, my first very simple and very random poll:

Poll #394 Tutorials

Do you want to see more tutorials/helpful stuff/how-to guides?

Hah, I made the first vote! I know I know, how crappy is that, voting in my own poll. Don't judge me! It's my very first poll and I was curious. I voted for yes, because I enjoy writing these tutorials, so...

Quick update

Today, I updated my user-info. I changed the text and the look of it. And I also messed around with my layout code in order to further customize it to my tastes.

I'm also working on a new HOW-TO guide, this time on how to change those mini icons here on IJ. I noticed quite a few bugs when using the codes from LJ.

Besides, [info]1x2x1_realm is now up and running. I pimped it on 1x2_fans over on LJ. We actually got more members due to that, but the asylum is still very inactive though. I hope that will change soon!

Anyway, I'm off to bed now! Good night, folks!

New Layout up

Gosh, I'm drop dead tired! Have been messing around with my new layout all day long. Finally got the hang of certain things though! For instance how to work with "Flexible Squares" CSS codes, how to create a theme layer and a whole lot of other interesting things. I guess I will write a tutorial or something, but for now I will just fall into my bed and sleep the sleep of the just. Wish you all a good night!

My first asylum!

Yesterday I created my first asylum: [info]jaredp_fans. It's an asylum for all the Jared Padalecki fans out there.

Creating an asylum isn't really that difficult! Only setting up a proper layout, writing rules and stuff like that is a little bit tricky, but I like tricky things! :)

Anyway, I was wondering if someone knows where to pimp my asylum? Any suggestions? Also, I can't seem to find a setting section where I can enable/disable the tags-function so that members will be able/not able to add tags on their own! Does anyone know where I can find this section?

ETA 08-20-2007 @ 3:08am: The problem is now solved! Information on how to set the tag function for asylums can be found here. Thanks to [info]mllesatine for providing the link and [info]das_dingsi for giving such a useful piece of information!

New layout

After three long days of hard work (and trust me when I say 'hard work' it really was hard work!) I'm now pretty pleased with my layout! Of course, since I'm way too much obsessed with Supernatural, I made a SPN themed one. What do you say? Do you like it? Tell me! I'm curious! and fishing for compliments

I'm so happy I found a header that features not only both Sam and Dean Winchester but also the third main character, the famous Impala! Yay! Thanks to fallen_for_lost for this awesome piece of SPN art!

It really took me awhile to find it, though. You wouldn't believe it, even though the whole internet is full of great art and pics and the like and ElJay is just one little corner where you can find a lot of pics/icons/headers, stuff like that; it's really damn difficult to search directly for something! Say a SPN header or icons, for example. So far I uploaded 84 of 300 icons and I'm still looking for "Thank-you" or "For-the-win" icons, so I went over to ElJay searching for some nice icons and I didn't find any! Can you believe it? Even with the help of ljseek I came out with nothing! Mm, that's quite annoying if you ask me!

Anyway, on to another topic!

+++ I need your help! +++

The other day I stumbled across a really hot icon of John Winchester (aka Jeffrey Dean Morgan). It was an animated one, had a dark red background, showed possessed John and said something along the lines of "Evil just got sexy". Stupid as I sometimes am I didn't save it to my folders! *stupidstupidstupidstupid* And now I really want to have it! I would really appreciate it if you could watch out for it, and if you stumble across it, please point me in the right direction! It really drives me crazy that I can't locate it on my own!

ETA 08-18-2007 @ 02:30am: I found it! LOL I've just found it! Man, I thought I saw that pretty icon a few days ago but according to my history it was yesterday! LOL See? This will happen if you spend way to many hours on-line! Anyway, here is the wonderful icon! I was looking for that:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
It was made by lidi. Also my memory seems to be pretty fuzzy! I thought the background was dark red only and let's not mention what I thought the icon said! LOL I'm getting old!

However, I'm still unsure of what to write in this journal! Should I write about the same things as I write in my ElJay? Should I also make it semi-friends-only? I don't know! But we'll see! I'll think about that for awhile. For now I'm immensely pleased I got my layout up and running!

First Post

Okay, here it is, my freshly born account at insanejournal! Whoot, whoot! I came over here from livejournal, and will use insanejournal as some kind of back up for when LJ decides to pull some shitty crap again, like yeah, the strikethrough for example or not letting me log in for hours! That's really not nice. In fact, it's freakin' annoying!

So, yeah, my layout sucks and believe me when I say there will be some major layout messing around in the next time. Oh yeah, oh yeah! This will take some time, I'm sure, but once my layout is all shiny and stylish I'll be more active around here! I have to find some new communities and some interesting friends, of course, so that I can start commenting! I'm going to hit the hay now! Good night to everyone who reads that stuff!
