Sally Mitchell already had a WordPress website but she wanted a new look, as her existing site wasn’t showing off her lovely, handpainted, personalised, wooden gifts to their best advantage.
I used the Circumference Lite theme from Styled Themes and used the built in customiser to choose a colour scheme that reflected Popsyclunk’s bright painted colours.
I added some more decorative touches to match the feel of Sally’s handpainted gift range, including rounded corners, blocks of colour around the menu items, a seamless wooden background from Pixeden and a yellow polka dot header.
I repeated the pale blue colour blocks around the dates in the blog posts and added a post separator similar to the outlines that Sally paints on some of her pieces.
Here’s a screen print of the new home page.
