dA Nuevo by GillianIvy dA Nuevo by GillianIvy

Featuring :Before and :After CSS3 extras

This was originally designed to be like the new dA default non-premium skin, only with a bit of color to it. However, I got carried away, as I often do.

Faux dA Journal Category Menu

You will need to edit for your name and adjust the date/timestamp, or have it hover to say whatever you like.

Edit the following in the HEADER:

<div class="sub_Menu"><p class="mavatar"><a href=""><img

class="avatar" src="YOUR AVATAR URL" alt=":iconYOUR NAME:"

title="YOUR NAME"></a></p><ul><li class="author"><abbr class="timestamp" title="The Date Goes Here">Moments

ago</abbr> by <span class="name">`<a class="u"

href="">YOUR NAME</a></span></li><li class="category"><a

href="">Journals</a> / <a

dA NuevoNew journal Design for FREE!!!It has been decidedly too long since my last free skin.  And what better to offer my watchers than a fresh design featuring the new CSS :before and :after?  As you can tell, I am having a bit of fun with this.  There are two inspirations, the first the :devecssited: contest, Pure and White.  This doesn't quite go within the rules (only one color).  And since I never do anything so bright, figured I'd have a bit of a go at it.  Next, it was mentioned to me that when you enter in CSS to the "Edit Skin" it overwrites the new non-premium default skin to look like the old green type.  Soooo, that was what this began a

Multiple backgrounds with scrolling effects. No extra HTML required for that.

Standard HTML

This does have HTML formatting such as bold, strong, italics, etc. Including an alternate <p> formatting for orange text. Please see the Live view for examples.
Bold, Strong, Italics, Emphasis, Underline, Strikethrough, Insert, Acronym, Abbreviation, Code, Teletype, SuperScript, SubScript and Small. As well as subheadings 1-6 (ignore preview says 5, it was a typo...). Also <blockquote> and <hr>.

Lit, big, and mini Thumbs

Lit thumbs are formatted to be legible and coordinate with the journal. You can create a big thumb by adding the word "big" before the thumb, like so: :bigthumb316253481:. For mini thumb, simply add <small>:thumb316253481:</small> around your thumbs. For emotes and pngs with transparent bgs, use <em>:thumb316253481:</em>

Credits and Inspirations

The bg noise image is a deviantART image from the default non-premium journals.
:iconecssited: hosted a contest for white themed journals, see all entries here: [link] Which inspired the color scheme of this layout.
All doodles were created by me.

p.s. August 7th is free Premium/dA's birthday!

How are yous?

Alright today. The kiddo had a so and so day at school today. Not a good day, but at least not a bad day. And grocery shopped for the Thanksgiving feast.
Astrikos Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012   General Artist
I hope the kiddo is all good. Meanies? Can I go and slap them? Unless it relates to grades or getting in trouble.

Oh yay!

It's him doing the trouble... He keeps getting out of control, throwing tantrums. Ever since school started. He doesn't want to be at school so acts out in order to get sent home or suspended. So not fun.

How has your day/weekend been?
Astrikos Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012   General Artist
Aw. I hope he's alright and stops doing so...

I had a half day, so lovely. Week end was enjoyable. I ran to the park with my father Saturday +Sunday.
(things are getting better. I'm still cautious however. )
