St. Patrick's CSS Challenge

Sat Mar 1, 2014, 6:05 PM
:iconjournalcss: and :iconjournalskin:
are teaming up for a St. Patrick's Day CSS Challenge, our second monthly challenge of many more to come....


Catch  a  Leprechaun, follow  the  rainbow  and  find  the  pot of gold,  go  green, because  St. Paddy's  is  the  theme!
Your task is to incorporate  the theme "St. Patrick's Day" in a beautiful, free, user-friendly new Journal skin or an equally beautiful new Journal design through the use of colour, typography, graphics, design or any other elements which you think relate to the theme in one way or another. You're free to interpret the theme in any way you want, but in the result the theme must be clear at first glance. Suggestions besides the obvious green, are shamrock/clover, leprechaun and his gold, colors of the irish flag.

This  contest  will  have  two  categories:  Even  if  you  can’t  code  CSS  you  can  still participate.

1: Complete CSS
A fully functional skin with design and code, preferably as Installable one.
2: Design Only
A skin design only.  You will be required to provide the unflattened psd file or high quality individual spliced images if your design should be chosen as winner. The design will be coded and made freely available for use.

The Rules

  • Need to be a member of either journalcss or JournalSkin
  • Entry must be new and created specifically for this contest and state this in the description with a link to this journal

  • Coded Skins should include a live preview (use for this)
  • No collabs between artists!
  • Entry must be submitted into the combined Mardi Gras - St. Patrick Challenge folder of your group -  this is to ensure your entry is counted.

Thanks for adding all my snippets to the galleries.  If anyone has problems with them, let me know, some of the codes might be dated...  I haven't checked on them in a while ;D
