Okay folks, taking up from where Island Dog left off, Ideas for a Community Theme Project - Holiday Edition, I thought it would be nice to continue this with a Valentines Day Theme.
I haven't jumped out here and taken responsiblity for much of anything so i thought it would be nice to take the lead for a ommunioty project for a Holiday Theme.
What do you say?
My idea, subject to further input from the community.
Valentines Day Theme Pack with a Dream as being the core for the Theme
This would include at the minimum: (updated to show skin volunteers)
•WindowBlinds theme (for XP, Vista and Win 7) - k10w3
•DesktopX Theme - RedneckDude
•DesktopX Widgets - RedneckDude
•CursorFX theme - Vampothika
•Dream - CarGuy1
•Rainlendar - RedneckDude
•RightClick Skin - Nimbin
•ScreenSaver Skin (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
•Icons (IP or just some dock icons) - Vampothika
•Object Dock backgound - RedneckDude, DisturbedComputer
•Wallpaper (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
•Logons (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
•BootSkins (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
(If you would like to do a skin that is not listed please leave a comment on the thread)
At the end this would all be wrapped up in a Theme Manager suite, I have to do something.
We need ideas for a unique name plus design ideas for the Dream. If someone is all ready working on a Dream, all the more better.
Now, I'm a non-skinner so you folks need to let me know if there is enough time to pull this together for Valentines day. We are only talking a little more than five weeks as we should have it done in time for folks to use the theme. In that line of thinking the Theme probably should not just say Happy Valentines Day in words but show more of what Valentines Day means between two people who care about one another, if that makes sense.
Okay, so lets hear your thoughts.
No lace on my screen...sorry...rednecks don't do lace.
Okay, we still need a name for this project, someone has to have a good choice out there.
Still need some more volunteers either for the remaining listed skins or others. Come on folks, ti will be fun, I promise.
I still can't get over being called prissy, uppity and soppy at 61 mind you, old and grumpy I understand. Where has all the romance in life gone?

Here's just a rough, vague idea of the direction I was thinking. I wanted to try using the layers function in WB7 for my next blind, and I think this Valentine's day theme will be the perfect opportunity to learn some new skills.
Karen, you'll have to hook me up when you're done, so keep the PSDs.
I'll do my best, Jim. I've been trying to get in the habit of working from a copy of my originals, so I don't merge the layers and save it without thinking. It's a mistake I've been making because I use the keyboard commands to merge and save, and sometimes my hands get ahead of my head.Here's a shot of what I have so far, after working with it a little more.
me likes so far.
A name for the skin (My heart to you(rs))
k10w3, looking very good.
Here is a wallpaper I compleated called falling hearts, you are welcome to it if you want it Philly
OK -- Here's a mockup of what I have so far. I've imported the images into SKS7, and so far, things are looking pretty sweet on Windows 7.
It wasn't that. It's my getting frustrated trying to figure out how to make them. But thank you for the nice comment.
Title for this one-
My Dirty Valentine?
oooh i like that!!
B U M P
If anyone involved needs the PSD for the wall, PM me your email address and I'll send it to you.
I'm also about finished with the dream so if you would like to test it out, let me know.
Needing some more volunteers to help fill out the theme, if you know of someone who just might want to help give them a shout.
ausvet could do bootskin perhaps? he does those dosent he??
Double post -- sorry
I've re-done my original idea, keeping only the taskbar and taskbar buttons. I know Valentine's day is not much of a guys day, but I'm toying with this idea of a his and hers version of the WB to try to get more guys into the "fun" -- I've uploaded an beta version of the guys here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/wgtmhjfmmwy/A2.wba
I'd appreciate if anybody could give me some feed back on this -- is it too risqué, too cheesy, (in particular the mouseover start button). Any comments at all -- good, bad, indifferent -- I'll accept them all with gratitude.
k10w3 I kind of like the original version.
Valentine's Day can be a guys day, they may blush some.
What will be different befween the 'guys' and 'girls' versions?
The graphic on the mouseover start button in the new version is small so it's hard to tell what it is.
The girls version has a little silver cupid for the start button, and I don't have animation for it right now. I, too, liked my original graphics, but there's a problem with the way the black curly decals stretched -- when the window was maximized it looked all pixelated and was really unattractive.
All I can say so far is that it will be hard to do docks for this because of the graphics. Not that they are bad....just that they don't work well with OD as far as stretching. But I'll give it a shot.
Tomorrow's my day off....time to go back to the drawing board. (I should have started this the second week of December).
