CelticStrm-Stock's Journal Skin CSS Contest

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 8, 2014, 6:14 PM

The Journal Skin CSS Contest

The Mission:

     Create a new installable journal skin of a medium to large body size that will be suitable to use for features. I am planning an upcoming series called "In The Stock-Light" that will be featuring new and unknown stock providers. This means the background shouldn't be too heavily loaded with images that will distract from the features. The header and footer areas are ok, but the body should be subtle or solid. The text should also be clearly visible against the background and at a normal font size for the body font. I would like to see some paper or subtle fabric type texture in the body area of the journal skin. All of my regular stock will be available for participants to use for free in this contest. (The exclusive gallery does not apply.) 

The Theme:

     The theme should either suit my user name (celtic or storm themed) or the "In The Stock-Light" feature series. You can either go light with dark text, or dark with light text. My favorite colors include pink, black, purple, and aqua/teal. Let your inspiration and creativity flow! Let's have fun with it!

The Prizes:

  :star:  First Place: 1,000 :points:, Multi-Journal Feature, and 3 Exclusive Stock Packs from my gallery

  :star:  Second Place:  500 :points:, Multi-Journal Feature, and 2 Exclusive Stock Packs from my gallery

  :star:  Third Place:  250 :points:, Multi-Journal Feature, and 1 Exclusive Stock Pack from my gallery.

The Deadline:

The deadline is 11:59 p.m. CST on March 31st.

All contest entry submissions should be linked in the comments area of this journal or sent to me via note. 

Other Information:

All entries should adhere to dA guidelines and use legitimate resources that allow for use in journal skins. My stock is always available for journal skin use provided that it's credited in the artist's comments area and I'm notified of use. Do not use images from google,, or celebrity images for this contest. Skins that do not adhere to dA guidelines will be disqualified.

The winning skin should be available for my use only. All other entries (including 2nd and 3rd place) will be able to publish your skin to the dA gallery for others to use.
