Coastal CSS by Abfc Coastal CSS by Abfc
Info
I was browsing, thanks to boredom, through the Photography > Nature > Waterscapes gallery the other day, and when I saw "The Weightless Grasp" I felt as though it was screaming to be a journal background for some reason. So I designed the layout and got permission to use the background and, well, here's the finished product. :3

Many thanks go to *hotburrito2 for letting me use his marvelous photo as this journal's background image. C:


==> Live Version <==

Code

"Journal Entry"
<div class="content"><p>Your journal goes here. Be sure to put the "<p></p>" tags around each paragraph so they'll indent and look nice. ;]</p></div>

"Footer" (This must remain intact!)
<div class="credit">Journal coded by :devabfc:
Background by :devhotburrito2:</div>


"CSS (beta)"
.journalbox {
    background-image: url("http://fc08.deviantart.com/fs20/f/2007/308/9/e/the_weightless_grasp_by_hotburrito2.jpg");

Parting Words
This layout hasn't been extensively tested and, as such, there is a chance that it will have bugs. If, and this is very unlikely, you experience any difficulties, just let me know and I'll fix it ASAP. :)
Also, if you have any questions in general, feel free to ask. :D

Feedback appreciated. ;]
