Hey guys! Missed me, huh? I missed you! <3 Wow, it's been uber-long since we've chatted last, huh? I have been doing minor designing here and there since we talked last, but nothing major and somehow I never got around to post about those projects here. Truth be told, I've been super-busy with the writing/translating/reading&book-blogging part of my life, and Ps play took a backseat for a while. And God, I missed it!! So it feels good to be back. I mean, I never left, but you know...:D Today we're talking about the awesome fun I've had with Britt from the newly-named Brittersweet Reads. You know Britt, she’s the Bookworm we’ve talked about a while back – her blog used to be Please Feed the Bookworm.

In the meantime, she’s moved to WordPress, and chose the fabulous Tweak Me as basis. The fab Nose Graze “translated” Britt’s design into her uber-easy-to-customize-and-enjoy theme. But then Britt went on a hiatus for a bit, and when she came back the shiny new Brittersweet Reads was born. Britt wanted to revamp her style, and being the lovely creature that she is, she wanted us to work together on her new style – ofc still using the kickass Tweak Me theme. And work we did xDDD Feast your eyes on the results!

Britt got a new custom header, background, post divider, sidebar description image, rating system, blog button and some minor tweaks here and there to go with the shiny new goods.
It’s always fun to work with Britt, there’s just something bubbly and super fun about her, you know? Plus we totally geed out, jedi style xDDD
And she wanted her new look to reflect the royal bookworm-ness of her soul and all sorts of topics she’s gonna talk about, in sparkly awesomeness too. I’m kinna loving the results, tbh.
Please do visit the Brittersweet Reads to see it all in its shiny glory xDDD

Talk soon!

Masquerade Book Tours

Hey guys!
Today we’re talking about a real fun project I worked on for Diantha’s Masquerade Book Tours. Obviously, there’s a masquerade motive going on, and I’ve had a great time working on it. Diantha wanted the awesome Johanes Djogan‘s SkyBlue theme customized, and I for one feel it works awesome for her needs.

Take a looksie at what came out…

Diantha got a Basic Blogger, coupled with a customized drop-down menu, custom header, a bunch of text stickers, a few extra buttons, a Twitter old layout header, and a sticker, so lots of goodies, lol. Love the outcome? I hope you do 😀

Talk soon!

Blogger Theme: The Magic Attic

Categories: blog buttons, Blogger theme, completed designs, icons, rating system, stickers, theme tweaks, widget

Hey guys!
Bragging time again 😀 You know you wanna know about it, I can see it in your eyes. Aaanyways, I did 2 things this week and I’m loving them both.

1. The Magic Attic – Blogger Theme

This one was my first minimalist theme, with dark colors. I love dark colors, well I love all colors but I totally love doing new things. Check it out:

I really like these themes with widgets in the header section, I don’t know why but I’m totally loving them. I’m happy Bree liked the theme, and I hope she’ll have fun using it.

Though it is minimalistic-style, I did do the header, social media icons, a post signature/post divider, a blog button, rating system and a few post stickers, Bree’s blog has a lot of activities going on 😀 Go check it out for yourself and see everything live.

There’s one thing that I’d like to mention, and that is that themes like this one that have more color coding them image inserts in them load a lot faster then others very rich in graphics. When you have a lot going on on your blog, you might want to consider the loading time. Just saying 🙂

2. Belle Books – Rating system & Blog Button

The lovely Emma told me she’d like a rating system and a blog button that would showcase her love for the anime style. Again, a first for me, and me being a total anime otaku (xDD), I had a heap of fun making these:

See them, on the right? Pink & yellow baby, all the way 😀

Though I often make the rating system, blog button and such matching the themes I do, it’s not a must that they’d be all matchy-matchy, then can go together well without having theme elements incorporated. It all depends on how you like your stuff, in the end.

Anyways, on to the next, right?
