Create Beautiful Designs
It didn't take long to discover that making icons for my LiveJournal wasn't the only thing I enjoyed. Sometimes you just can't find what you want so you have to do it yourself and here I've been makes layouts in Flexible Squares for a couple years now. You can find them all at this site (Smooth Sailing Layouts are mixed in but can also be found here).
Many of my recent layouts are responsive to computer and tablet screens. LJ takes over after that and gives us their version of the mobile screen.
Not everyone is a coder so for the things you have trouble with, I'm there to lend a hand. I may not respond immediately but I'm willing to help you make your livejournal beautiful.
In many cases there are header or background images that go with a layout I've produced. In no way do you have to use these images. They are there for my inspiration. Use what inspires you.
Make LJ Your Own
I'm a firm believer in making livejournal your own which means you can find many tutorials to help you improve your livejournal experience over at my LJ community Layout Lounge.
