This is a collection of the
old page layouts I used for Rushita.com (or Rushita's Room) before.
I used to just delete old designs (html files and pictures) from my hard
drive after half a year or so, but I've starting to save them as screen
captures and make a collection of them. That's because I've spend
a lot of effort and time on most layouts and I like every single one I
made. It is such a waste to just trash all the art work. I
only have a few of the more recent ones and those really old ones are already
trashed o.o;; These layouts witness the development of the page and
also the improvement of my html and art skills, and each one tells a different
story... Click on the thumbnails to view the layouts in full-size
(quality reduced from the actual original layouts). They are now
arranged in reverse chronological order.
||He is Born (Christmas 2010)
- This layout features the baby Jesus on a Christmas ornament. It
was first designed for my forum signature image for Christmas, and later
applied to this site. The main message on it was the lyrics of "Because
He Lives". Even though it is not a Christmas song, it brings out
what Christmas really means to us personally. The same snow-falling
effect used in 2008 was applied here as well. The navigation menu
was the ornamental icons on the top right.
||Strawberry - This is a layout
made with real frames. This is probably the first layout I actually
did with frames over 13 years of making the site. Continuing the
cute little girl theme from the previous Christmas layout. This is
actually a very simple layout due to lack of time, however, it still took
me quite a bit of time to get everything to work properly.
This layout ran for a very
long time from March 2010 to November 2011 (and yes, it came out really
late, so we still were using the Christmas one till March! >.>)
||Stars (Christmas 2009) -
This layout is dedicated of my newborn daughter, thus I used a cute girl
wintery image. The main message is the lyrics of "He's Everything
to Me", a Christmas song without the traditional Christmasy tune.
The lyrics already has everything I wanted to share about what Christmas
really is. The midi embeded of course is the music of the same song,
so you could actually sing-a-long. The gift box on the top right
of the lyrics linked to the site called "Jesus is the Gift", which also
aims for the true meaning of Christmas. The hidden mouse-over message
on the little girl is: "My dear daughter, when you grow up, you will understand
Jesus loves you." The navigation menu is the star icons which will
change to orange when they are mouse-overed.
||Christmas 2008 - This layout
is a modification of the non-Christmas version of Duet of Love during the
using the hand-drawn snowflakes images made for the layout of Christmas
2006. The midi is "Angles We Have Heard On High", matching the Christmas
message: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom
his favor rests."
||Duet of Love - This is a
La Corda D'oro theme with my favourite violin couple Hino Kahoko and Tsukimori
Len. The name "Duet of Love" is came from their heart-warming violin
duet of Ave Maria. The nagivation is self-explanatory, clearly marked
on the music scored design. The mouse cursor image is Lili, the Fata
(musical fairy). The hidden mouse-over message is "Him...", "Her...",
"together their hearts soar." The accompanied 404 layout was the
image of the Kahoko's broken violin. I love this layout very much.
This layout was up for a
full year from November 2008 until November 2009.
