Version 12: Sheltering Branches
Debuted in November 2011
My own pencil artwork!
Photoshop Elements 8.0
2-column centered floated div layout
Two columns for content
Big image sliced up into header and background
HTML tables used to organize navigation and RSS feeds
to bring in RSS feeds on the main page
Drawing my own artwork and using it in a layout
Styling all those RSS feeds and social media widgets
This design is the first mostly-white layout since
This is also the first time my own artwork has appeared in one of my web designs. I hand-drew the tree and leaves with pencil on printer paper and scanned it into my computer.
I was really nervous about drawing anything for my site, since I don't consider myself an artist, but it actually turned out better than I expected.
To offset the stark white, I used a LOT of different shades of green, just like tree leaves!
