This layout is basically a tweak on a Blacklettered which is itself based off Central. It is very simple and minimal and sans-serif.


  1. Go to your Customize page.
  2. Under "Select a New Theme", type "Blanket" in the Search box.
  3. Find "Peach" (by [personal profile] sforzinda) and click Apply Theme
  4. Click the button that says Customize Your Theme.
  5. Click Custom CSS on the left. Uncheck use layout's stylesheets! It should look like this!
  6. Copy and paste the following into the custom stylesheet box and click "Save Changes":

With image header —

Customizing the Header

This layout was designed with a simple-to-customize header component. The default size of the header is 700 x 120 pixels, but you can tweak the CSS to other dimensions by changing the numbers in red.

To change the header, find these lines of code (hint: they're at the very top for easy editing) and replace the url in red with the url of the image you want to use!

#header {
margin: 1em auto 0;
background: url(http://spoony.valiantknife.org/dwidth/modernism/header.png) no-repeat;
padding-bottom: 1em;
border-bottom: solid #eee;
height: 120px;
width: 700px; }

I love this layout, but the links are too light for me to read. Would you please tell me which part of the code I need to tweak to make them darker?
