The more I looked, the more I realized that I needed a conservative and straightforward look to deal with this site’s architecture. I swapped the banner for a fractal I sound about five years ago – and then ded some really amature-ish effects to the corner so you could still see my page title. You still can’t see the title very well – and that’s on every wordpress page until I change/fix. Also, although I like the fractal, it doesn’t go with the colors and look of the rest of the template. For now, I don’t care. It’s more important to have a shape I can work with. If I’m feeling ambitious, I’ll see if I can learn enough php and/or css to simply change some colors. I’d also like the titles to be sans serif also. Bottom line, it’s not perfect, but it’ll do for now. The tinkering continues.
