Daily Deviation

Given 2014-02-02
Surreal Journal CSS by SimplySilent is a treat to the eyes. The colors match, the shapes match, the fonts used match, and all of it together makes for a journal skin looking just as spiff and professional as any full-fledged web design.
It is not only a very good skin and easily customizable, it also shows Simply's dedication, hard work, and passion. I can only admire, wide-eyed wonder, how she manages to top each of her skins with one even better.

I like the buttons, and how the whole page is set up, Very organized, 5/5 on everything. ^^ (If I had premium I would use it) I think that people who struggle with keeping things organized (Such as me) would like this a lot, it shows people where and how to find thing such as the gallery and things, And it provides a lot of space and I like that you have the username and icon of the persons account, again I would gladly use this when I get premium, might be still around I will that is, I hope that others like it too, I find it very succesful. ^^

Using your journal skin for a contest announcement :la:
Did you intend to make horizontal rules invisible? Easy enough to change in any case :shrug:
Uhhh, probably not. :shifty: Perhaps I should proof-read my code whenever I re-upload it :XD:
such gorgeous journal! :heart:
