Yes, I know, that was a needlessly long title. But it serves dual purposes. I will be using this journal as a test journal for a new Typography styled skin which the focus is the text, not the graphics. I want to achieve a magazine/poster type of look. This is going to be an exclusive skin. The first of several which will only be available to one lucky Deviant as part of a pointraising effort to reinstate the Super status for #CSS-Babes. I have recently been appointed the status of Super Babe, and my very first act shall be to start a pointraiser! DA is currently having a sale on Super group subscription, meaning this is the time to get as many points together as quickly as we can. So, my fellow babes may be contributing exclusive skins at super low prices. We haven't hashed out all the details yet or even informed all the Babes.
But it can't hurt to get the promo ball rolling and make you all yourselves. Thinking of you, ^pica-ae

Dual purpose number two! Big congratulations to the wonderful ^ladygagz for his participation in the grand opening contest for ~eCSSercise. Your stamp illustrated the purpose of our group as well as entertained with cute emotes. Great execution! Please everyone go tell him how awesome his stampness is!
Triple dual purpose (okay, I can't count?), would be a journal MEME I saw on ^neurotype's most recent journal, which featured me, sort of making me need to go ahead and do it. It's a fun little feature one where you post up faves. Good way to show community love and fill up my journal with something other than "Lorem Ipsom, this is a test"...
- The first thing I faved:
(I have 89 pages of faves, this is the first from this account, I closed my old account, but many are faves from my first days on DA)
- Two I forgot about but still love.
Both are favorite artists I had watched in my old acct. One I just recently re-watched, the other hasn't posted since December.
- Three that baffle me.
I am baffled at 20 faves and ZERO comments!
- The last four I favorited by different people.
I cheated on this, as my last four were DD's or someone I recently featured, I want to give random exposure here
- Something that should totally have a DD.
Vincent Van Gogh fan art for Doctor Who.
- Six pieces by friends.

Idea behind this particular skin, it uses only one image, a simple semi-transparent white square. The focus would be variable fonts, using switches of font size, style and color to bring more visual depth to the character of the journal. The magazine styled fonts juxtaposed with a hand written style Google WebFonts* that goes off the boundaries of the journal to give it the feeling of someone taking notes in the margins and side lines.
