expressive: life's a spectrum

A layout I made for my personal journal, but I'm sharing because I'm nice. It was loosely based on the Adobe site and I've created a few custom color schemes based on the software palette.

how to install
1. Apply any Expressive or Mixit theme. (Please note that some Expressive/Mixit themes may come with attribution images. If these show up in your layout, please comment here.)

2. Scroll down to Choose a Page Setup and select 2 Column (sidebar on left).
Define your links. These are the links that show up at the very top of the page.
Make sure any drop-down boxes are set to No, paste the code into the box, and click Save Changes.
custom color schemes
If you want to give the layout a different color scheme, replace (CTRL+H) the #0063BE (lighter color) and #22217F (darker color) in the code. Below are some suggested schemes based on Adobe's software.

That is an astonishingly pretty layout. Wide, but with no sidebar, and minimal header menu. Nice.

Hello! I was looking at your journal and I saw that the words were all lined up after the userpic and that your tags didn't edge off to the side of the layout. Is there a way to get it like yours?

Very nice and minimal. I like that you made the entire header the home link :) My only personal concrit would be that I prefer visual feedback on rollover, and there's no active rollovers in the layout (though it's obvious this was an active choice on your part and not an omission). Still great!
