A new seasonal promotion is starting again at C2F. With each new promotion comes a new theme for the web site. I'm fairly pleased with this newest theme I've been working on. I decided to do something different with the panel tops and bottoms. Instead of the rounded corners I've been sticking with, I altered it to be torn paper. I scanned a real piece of torn paper and masked it out for realism. The cool thing is that I am still using the same HTML source. Just by altering the CSS and using different images, I am able to achieve a variety of effects.
I'll be making the theme live tomorrow. Yesterday I was working on a graphic for the home page. Perhaps I'll write about how I made it. By the way, does anyone know of other sites that regularly change themes or color schemes? I think it is pretty cool to be involved in a project that changes its appearance this often (about once every 3 months). I don't know of a lot of sites that do this. The way I wrote the CSS makes it quite easy to create new themes. I guess I am kinda living out my dream for Esotropiart. My original hope for Esotropiart was to create a host of different themes that would either be loaded randomly or chosen by the user. I simply don't have the time to devote to creating new features and adding content to my site. Too many other projects receive my attention.
