Version 12: Sheltering Branches
- 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
- Using Feed2JS.org 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 version 3!
- 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!
