I have been tossing around the idea of putting a new design up for Zenful Creations, my design portfolio, since the last CSS Reboot, but that great idea got 86’ed due to time constraints and Hurricane Wilma (what a time that was)!
After missing Adam’s event, I was bummed, so threw it on the back burner until around Christmas. I got that urge to re-align again, so I settled down into Photoshop to try to get something going for the next Reboot event.
As is my normal practice, I head off to to stock photography websites, this time iStockphoto.com, to peruse the keyword of “Zen” and see what inspirations await me. I took an immediate liking to a photo captured by a photographer there named Cecilia Lim and her photo titled “Simple Relaxation” – a shot of the single Frangipani flower, with a rock and the incense.
As soon as I saw this photo, my mind went in a million different directions, I designed FrangipaniZen, and then marked it up; I themed WordPress2.0 with it, and only had the “portfolio section” left to implement. I thought I was almost ready. Then after all that work, I decided I did not want to use it for the main site. I hate it when that happens!
So, since I still LOVE the photo, but just not enough for the main page, I have made a few adjustments to the original WordPress theme, and here it now lives, unwasted at least 🙂
