Layout: Botanique

image preview | [info]tess048


It's gonna be a busy, busy month, so the theme for March is going to be simplicity! Stripped down layouts without a bunch of bells and whistles so that I can ensure that I have time to both move and still post fun content! To add some balance, April's theme is actually going to be the opposite, so if you're dying for more sliding and popup info modules in your layouts, you're gonna love next month's lineup!

That said, today we have a blushing one column layout with image accents and a custom non-Google font! It should be pretty easy to replace the banner and userpic backgrounds, but make sure you change the padding on .inner-entry-userpic if your icon is sitting funny over its background. Next month I may make extra background options for this layout, so let me know if you'd like that so I know if it's worth the time to make them!

This layout has no sidebar, so make sure to stick credit in your profile page instead! Enjoy! ♥

Aw, thank you!! I know I don't make a lot of stuff like this, but I think this month will be fun!

I swear, they get even more beautiful with the passing of time ♥

And I love how you made it even easier to install it, that we don't even have to replace a thing? Because it's really hard to go through the HTML coding with my glasses and all? So even if I use 'Replace all' and everything, I always make a mess of things and I have to fix it manually. So, THANK YOU!

They are lovely! ♥

Aww, thank you! ♥

Oh no! I'll keep that in mind and remember to make more 100% plug & play layouts for use on here for those of you who have trouble with things like that! ♥

Just created this character who LOVES PLANTS, and in coming to find a totally different layout to use for her, I saw this one instead and went oh, this is ideal. Thank you for inadvertently making the perfect one!
