Free Customizable Deviant Lace  Journal Skin by Shattered-Earth Free Customizable Deviant Lace  Journal Skin by Shattered-Earth
Wow, thanks for the DD! I hope people will also take a look at my other art TuT

Just in time for the Free premium membership day! Try this skin out free of charge! <3 This is a free journal skin for anyone to use so long as they do not remove credit or edit it other than the designated editable logo top and option info box

Preivew the skin LIVE here: [link]

How to Use

Just install to journal and it should be ready to use. There are some code things you should be aware of:

Use this to make a header
<h1>Header Text Goes Here</h1> and you should start the paragraph on the same line for best effect!

Use this to make blockquotes
blockquotes look best with a line break in front but not one behind! </blockquote>

And don't forget your basics like

:bulletgreen:Commission Info/Footer
You CAN change the commission info box. When you go to your skins, you EDIT this skin, and the last box at the bottom (the footer) has the commission info. Just change the "Commission Info" part all the text under it to whatever you want! Suggestions for alternatives are friends, features, links to your own art, etc. :) Visually here: [link]

:bulletgreen:Header "My Journal" Image
You CAN change the logo at the top if you know how to use photoshop or any program that opens PSD files and saves as 24-bit transparent pngs, feel free to change it yourself! Just download the PSD file HERE: [link]

And look for the layers that say IMAGE MIDDLE (That's the pencil) and TEXT to change the text. You can also adjust the RING if you would like. These already have filters and effects on them so all you have to do is draw!

After you save it as a 24-bit transparent .PNG file, upload it some where and look for this bit of code:
.journalbox .journaltop{
background-image: url('http : //fc08.deviantart . net/fs71/o/2012/019/3/5/280273041_356448_lacemiddlet_by_shattered_earth-d4mv472.png');

Replace the underlined URL there with your new header URL!

:bulletgreen:Matching Boxes
Want the rest of your DA page to match? Use this background!


If you have any questions please feel free to ask! This is my first shared skin so there might be issues, I will be happy to try to address all of them <3

:bulletred:There's a white line on my journal?
This is a bug my fault :( Just re install and it should be fixed now

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-02-21
Free Customizable Deviant Lace Journal Skin by *Shattered-Earth looks great and blends well with the colour of dA, and is very easy to use. The suggester loves this for more reasons than would fit in this description!
This skin comes with a matching custom widget background too.

Hey this is really great and I want to use it as long as I can due to the one-day premium membership day. Great simple yet charming design!
I have an issue with the editing though...Not familiar with coding at all but I tried following your steps. It came out like this though…
Could you help me fix it, if you have time? 
Shattered-Earth Apr 7, 2014   Digital Artist
It looks like you changed the dimensions of the .psd i gave you, have you tried sticking to those? 

If you change the size of the image you have to change the offset to match (the numbers under the URL in the code where you put in that new image!)

Thank you a lot for replying!
Oh, yes I did expand the top, so I could mage the included image of that dude bigger (his hair and all) I match it?
Shattered-Earth Apr 7, 2014   Digital Artist
Where it says background-position:-150px 20px; literally the line after the url you put for the image?

You need to change the numbers to move the image. I cannot do the math for you so  you will have to either do the math or use trial and error. It's the same method i would do so you won't save any time by asking me to do it for you XD

Oh I see! I just got that they move around when I change the numbers and did "trial error" just as you suggested. Thank you very much and again: beautiful journal!
