UKJapan journal skin - Reading by annako UKJapan journal skin - Reading by annako
EDIT 2: Important! Listen guys, you can definitely use/alter this for your own personal use and not credit me, but not for commissions/sales. In other words, the CSS should be free, and no one should be paying for an altered version of it. Otherwise, feel free to alter it for yourself, you don't even have to tell me you did or credit me.

NOTE: Only subscribed users can use journal layouts. Sorry.

NOTE 2: Although you have my permission to completely replace the footer image, please do not trace/edit the original footer image. Replacing it with a completely original artwork of your own is fine, as long as you're not editing mine.



1) Install journal skin to your account.
2) Save this blank footer pic I made: [link]
3) Stick your own footer image to the blank footer pic. Be sure to save in transparency. If you don't know how to do this, please google it.
4) Upload your new footer image to photobucket or some image sharing site. Copy the image url.
5) Make a new journal, and click "Options" in the tab above your journal title entry. (It's beside Journal Text)
6) In the body coding "Skin CSS", Ctrl + F "footer-grey" and it will bring you to a line:

background:#ccd9c8 url('photobucketlinkhere') no-repeat top;

Replace the url inside the brackets with your own footer image url. YOU ARE DONE YAY \O/

Live Preview: [link]

Okay, since I was getting some people who were interested in this xD;

My UK/Japan journal laaaayouttt /o/ \o/ \o\

This ghastly thing took me a freaking 12 hours to code correctly. >:I This is why I don't do CSS. But there was no UK/Japan journal skin available to download here, so I had to make my own OTL;;; WELL, IF YOU'RE IN THE SAME SITUATION AS ME, NOW HERE'S YOUR UK/JAPAN JOURNAL SKIN READY FOR DOWNLOAD.

Feel free to change the footer picture to your own, no need to credit me for anything. xD

There's a lot of things that can go wrong since it's my first time coding a journal skin, so be careful. Also, can only work correctly when viewed with Mozilla Firefox. Sorry IE users...


UK/England/Arthur Kirkland and Japan/Kiku Honda are from Axis Powers Hetalia and do not belong to me. A day for the images, and another day for the coding. /cries

I was just wondering if the text was supposed to look like this -> or if it was my browser?

If it's not my browser, is there any way to fix it? Can I draw a larger speech bubble? :P

Thanks ^-^

what does subscribed users can use journal layouts mean, sorry to ask, my brain is all messed up today from reading a really bad bad story
annako Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
only people with a premium account on dA have the ability to change their journal skins. So if you aren't a premium user, you simply can't use the skin.
babyhorsie Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello! I've been wanting to use this skin for a while, changing the footer picture, but for some reason it isn't working. I did your tutorial until step 4, making the picture transparent and uploading it to an image sharing site. But when I try to put the link on the skin codes, it doesn't work for some reason. When I click on the preview, the picture doesn't appear there. Could you help me with this, showing me which is the problem, or(only if you want to, of course) I can give you the link and you place it on the journal codes? I really want to use this skin while I have the subby, but I can't! I've been trying for the whole day, with no success :(
annako Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
sorry for the late reply, I'm rarely online nowadays! Do you know where in the code you've placed your link? Try showing me a screenshot of your coding? =)
babyhorsie Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Don't worry :D I already solved the problem ^_^
