As promised, here's the code for the layout I've been working on over the past few days; I called it Junk Dealer because I put it together for an RP journal for Maqui, really (and the accent color is inspired by the NORA insignia on his vest).

CSS and special mentions can be found beneath the cut.

☆ Includes custom entry pages.
☆ The CSS is streamlined to make customization easier; you'll only have to change one value to change any color or font. All color and font definitions are found in the bottom two sections, titled Text and Colors.
☆ Fonts used are Verdana and Georgia; to change either one, you'll only have to change the font family name in the Text section.
☆ The two red accent colors are #8d1823 (text) and #a43742 (elements). Each value only appears once, so just replace that with the color you want if you'd like to change it.
☆ To set this up, select any Basic Boxes theme and then change the page layout to 1 Column (modules at top and bottom; no sidebar) Then, under Customize your theme, navigate to Custom CSS, uncheck the "Use layout's stylesheet(s)," and paste the CSS into the box; save your changes and then go to the Modules section. You should set your modules up to look something like this (you can use whatever tags display you would like); this will ensure the modules display properly. Also, it doesn't matter if the extra modules (Syndication, Time Loaded, Powered By, Style Credit, Search, and - for paid accounts - Active Entries) are unchecked or not since the CSS is set to hide them.

And that's that; enjoy!

This community is a resource for any icons and layouts that I put together; I'm not particularly frequent about posting any - I mostly make icons when I feel like there's something new I'd like to have and my layouts are created on a whim - but it's nice to have them in a good, central location where I can share them with others.

I mostly create icons for whatever has caught my fancy; generally, this is whatever fandom I love. The ones that will likely get the most love are Ouran High School Host Club, Final Fantasy XIII, Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Vesperia, D.Gray-man, and Xenosaga.

As for layouts, I prefer clean layouts that generally provide some room for flexibility. I also like keeping any background images to a minimum, both to main that clean look and to offer versatility. I suppose this might be a nod toward the concept of "simple and elegant." None of my work is particularly stunning or groundbreaking, but it generally gets the job done well enough - and it's hopefully easy on the eyes.
