This is something that I've wanted to try for a long time, and with the help of numerous tutorials all over the net, I think I figured out how to do it. So I present, my first LJ layout featuring Kira and Rei from MARS!

Thankies to ameute for putting up the gallery where some of the pics I used came from. The brushes I used came from a couple of sources; the burnt negatives and the text brushes came from a wonderful site called .::Touchstone's Art::. The owner of the site has brushes for mostly Photoshop, but there are a couple for Paint Shop Pro users. The paperclips and the paper came from  The little polaroid photoframe doodads were made by me. If anyone wants to use it let me know and I can email the zip file to you, or point me in the direction of a good site where I can upload it and post a link back here. 

I also made a few icons before I got bored with Paint Shop Pro Studio:

There's one more icon I did but it's a special one that goes with the layout. : )

*Sniffles* its not looking like the preview. I put it in S1 and in Generator. Am I doing it correctly?

Did you copy the entire code and set the custom colors exactly?

yes but I'll double check to be sure.

I think I know what it is! Your entries and scrunched up smaller than mine; that can be fixed in the overrides section. I think mine is set to 400px or somewhere around there, and I based this layout off of my journal and I didn't change the size of the boxes. I just looked at your journal and it looks great!

That's it! Thank you, I just adjusted the number and it made it less squished. I'm all pleased ^_^
