I give up on trying to upload templates here, haha, but this is something I made not at all for themeforest. I dont ever plan to try and upload it or anything like that.

However I would like your opinion on it, in case I ever decide to use it for something. Opinions and suggestions are much appreciated.

Hi mharr765.

Lot of the themes that I saw that were rejected are having problem with colors. The design I see right now has a really good idea, but little weak on colors. Maybe a lighter background will help to lighten up your whole design!

You might also consider how the background cloud will look in larger displays. Here is a great tutorial on large backgrounds.

Good start, header is nice BUT everything beneath it could be done better. First I would remove that wooden bg and leave just clouds and some illustration. Content with white transparent overlay is ok. Sidebar needs improvement and typo must be better.

I don’t think the “sky” header matches with the “wooden” background at all.

i agree, the concept is not bad, but there needs to be a much better transition between the header graphics and the wooden bg, the swishes should have a certain “end-effect” on the right, they are cropped up too brutally, green news title color doesn’t integrate well (I’m actually hard pressed to find a design in which that exact green would work), section titles on the left are a bit out of style, you would need a footer, or something to finish it up at the lower end, it looks unfinished. There’s tons more things that could be improved, but as I said, it’s not bad at all even like this, with a little bit more work it can be seriously cool :)

You can use a picture of a green hill and put in below the sky and set the background color ‘green’..
