need new design

I'm bored with the look of my journal. I'm just recording what I've been using so that if I don't like my changes, I can go back. I don't expect anyone to have any interest in this, so I'll just hide it under a cut.

Okay, the "Expressive" layout is cool, and both the Minimalist Blue and Unity Blue themes are good; I also like the color scheme of the DJ theme. I don't like that the layout does not have any color customization options; perhaps that could be done through CSS but I don't know anything about that. The "Bloggish" layout is okay too but has the same lack of color customization. "Refried Paper" does allow custom colors, but I'm not sure it's actually showing all the components I want.

...and Expressive, Minimalist Blue, has won for now. I'll see how long I like it - the previous design lasted for two years I think.
