Misc Headers  
Okay...so I have made a few of the new style of headers. They look really good on white backgrounds. :)

There aren't very many because I didn't really have a "theme" to go from, so I ended up just looking for random pictures and quotes...I didn't make any icons for the same reason. I might make more graphics later, though!

These are beautiful!

I've just been messing with layouts and the new system confuses me. How do you add a banner and change your background color? Most of the styles don't seem to support those kinds of changes, which makes me sad. LJ is stifling my creativity...

Well, to be honest, I haven't played with layouts in a really long time...and I'm not sure I've messed with the new system at all. So I'm not really sure I can answer your questions. :|

I can, however, tell you that when I did play with changing layouts, I'd always use the 'how to' journals, both general and specific for the particular layout I was trying to change. It can get pretty technical in those journals, but if you find what you're trying to change, they can be very helpful!

i had the same problem. i finally got so frustrated that i just chose a pre-made layout. But thee only one that really gives you a lot of flexibility is the Veritable Flow Layout. It has options for background images and colors, as well as text colors, text box colors, and etc. Except its still not a very creative layout design!
Good luck with figuring it out. :)

Well, if you have a paid account, you can do a lot with Flexible Squares, but you have to use those how to journals to figure it out. That's what I did a long time ago with my personal journal.

sorry, I don't have any input on the new layouts...

out of curiosity (and so I can see how it looks) whose journal were you looking at?

Thank you, I copied #1 and just saved it as a picture because I have no idea on how to make it a header but very nice.

These are lovely! Saving a few for desktop use—I'll credit in the filename in case I decide to use them on LJ eventually. Thank you!
