I’m teasing, I know

I was reading through Terry’s ArenaWP and saw that he doesn’t have anything against releasing a theme entry to the public before he releases them in his site. Well, that’s good. If that’s the case, you guys will see my two entries sooner than you thoughtβ€”sooner than WE thought.

Since the deadline for ArenaWP has expired anyway, I don’t see any harm in showing you guys the new themes in their full glory. They still won’t be available for download here at the moment though. I’ve submitted the themes to Jame’s Theme Viewer and Silkjaer’s WordPress Theme Park. To be honest, I don’t want my server to shoulder all the download requests. I’m being hosted here by SheeroMedia for free, and I might be pushing my luck too far if I do that hehe. I’ll just put up alternative download locations here when the themes are up in those sites.

I have installed Ryan Boren‘s Theme Switcher plug-in on the side bar so you guys can easily preview the themes.

By the way, the newest theme I made is called “Kurtina,” which is translated in Filipino as “curtain.” The story behind it is pretty boring, I was just inspired by the nice texture and patterns of the curtain my mom made for me to put on my bedroom windows. I initially used this as a the main layout of my photo blog, Pixeliera. I’ll be changing the layout of that site soon to a more simplistic, photo-bloggy feel, so I just modified the theme a bit for general use. Enjoy!

  1. Gail, I saw this Kurtina theme sometime ago and thought “Wow, now that’s a theme”.You are truly a gifted designer and this theme is just awsomely beautiful.

    I am very serious about themes and I do not impress easily.During a time in which nearly every desugner is building dull white pages and passing them off as works of art, you are truly designing themes that WOW the senses.

  2. Btw, the version of Kurtina on Pixeleria is beautiful as well.I hope you have future plans to release that version also.Both are theme competion worthy.

  3. DANA: thanks πŸ™‚ I really appreciate it. I was honestly nervous about releasing it to the public… Kurtina and Isla were actually the themes that I haven’t gotten feedback from my dad before releasing them (he’s a great artist/photojournalist, and his feedback is always on target), and my fiance was in a hurry when i showed him. Thanks again πŸ™‚ Definitely very encouraging for me to do more free themes πŸ˜€

    And yep, I am planning to release the Pixeliera version of Kurtina. Just a bit busy right now, but I will get to it πŸ™‚

  4. DON: Thanks! πŸ™‚

    DEREK: YOU SHOULD!!! πŸ˜€ It’s a great way of showing you’re Pinoy to fellow Pinoys, and at the same time have the “mysterious” meaning behind the name to people who don’t understand Tagalog. Message me when you’ve released your Pinoy-titled theme!!! πŸ™‚

  5. THANK YOU SO MUCH, DANA. I really can’t thank you enough for the support you’ve given my work all the way through. It really means a lot to me πŸ™‚

  6. Congratulations, Gail! May 17… Pinoys reached the summit of both Everest and the WordPress 2.0 design world. πŸ™‚
