PLEASED.

Ah, to heck with CSS grid layouts and trying to have the frame hug the screen on all 4 sides. I think this works:

Auronlu Shrine -- New Skin (only one page done so far).

Of course, this gets me no closer to doing something I haven't done in a year: compile links to all the new fanart, fics and icons people have made, including moi.

But the frames on the old shrine were SO UGLY. Every time I went to work on it I cringed.



and THANK YOU THANK YOU to my guinea pigs and helpers. I learned a lot peering at all the weird bugs you showed me!

Isn't it PURTY? I am very happy with the header graphics, if I do say so meself.

And yes, I have finally beaten the evil layout code into submission!

It looks fantastic! What's the font on the "Auron and Lulu" header? It is beautiful, and I am a font nerd!

Ooo, a spirit after my own heart!
That font has finally replaced good ol' Zapfino in my esteem. It's called Mutlu. Find it. It's yummy. I am a junkie of handwritten and calligraphic fonts, thought not usually so flowery.

Mutlu has this up-and-down thing going with characters hanging above or below the main line of text, which inspired me to play with superscripting individual words in the headline and then tweaking the font size or negative-kerning a few individual characters (e.g. the & overhanging the L) to exaggerate the effect and make the squiggles crisscross at artistic spots.
