Blog Skin

Bagi yang sudah lama mengikuti blog saya pasti sadar tahun lalu saya mengganti blog yang lama dengan yang baru dengan memakai url yang sama. Sudah hampir 8 tahun saya nge-blog  dan blog yang lama berisi banyak sekali kenangan tapi akhirnya saya memutuskan lebih baik itu saya jadikan konsumsi pribadi :p

Bagi yang sudah lama menjadi pembaca blog ini pun pasti sadar saya suka membuat layout sendiri. It's true that for the last 3 years I've been somewhat neglecting this blog. Put aside my old-almost-stale excuse ("I'm so busy, doing uni abroad isnt easy. tsk!"), finally I realized that.. nope, simple is not always nice. My blog is so boring. Maybe this is also due to those dry courses i've been doing for the last 3 years but, really, I crave for colors (pastels!) and shapes. So after few many, many, hours..


See those colorful pastel polkadots? Oh, I'm in love with them! Frankly speaking I scanned copied them from my iPad sticker that I got from Typo yesterday and /sighs/ sorry, but none of those pictures are mine (except for the 'polaroid' photos on the banner) :p

Noticed that something's off with my iPad decal? I bought the wrong size :p
Since I feel bad, I'm giving credits for everyone..

Blog Template - okay, I still remember I did this 7 years ago when I was still in junior high (up until I was in high school, pre-IB madness for sure). Editing css and trying to make it as original as I could. Surprisingly, just like the old days, I had to spent hours and hours to get this somewhat simple template done yet this is not from scratch. I got the basic code from here.

The Original Template
Fonts - Apart from the default post font, I used Indonesiana Serif and Dawning of A New Day for the banner. They are free from Dafont.

Stickers - This is the most important credit, I got those cutesies from here. She made a cute doodle font set by herself and, for a non-art student like me, that is just awesome!

The Doodle Font
Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram Buttons - I got the doodled FB and Twitter icons from here. The set doesn't have Instagram icon so I edited a bit with original logo from here.

This is so much fun, I wonder why I never thought about being a web designer :p anyways, I wanted to share some more random stuff but too tired to take pictures and upload them nicely. The next post, that is :)

For those who are celebrating the magical 25th of December,
I wish you a lovely and merry Christmas :)
