How to Add Pastel Gradients to your Design
Create a New Page
Let’s start by using a premade layout from the Divi library. For this design, we will use the Telehealth Landing Page from the Telehealth Layout Pack to show off our gradients.
Add a new page to your website and give it a title, then select the option to Use Divi Builder.
We will use a premade layout from the Divi library for this example, so select Browse Layouts.
Search for and select the Telehealth Landing Page layout.
Select Use This Layout to add the layout to your page.
Now we are ready to build our design.
Adding the Pastel Gradients
If you are following along with the tutorial, open the layout pack for this tutorial in another tab for easy access to the premade gradients. We will be copying the background gradient styles from this layout to the telehealth layout.
Open the module settings for the gradient you want to use in your design and copy the background.
You can copy the background by right-clicking over the Background section in the module settings or by clicking the three dots next to Background and selecting Copy Background.
While copying and pasting the background from our layout is the easiest way to recreate the look in your own design, here are the settings for the gradient we’re using in this tutorial:
Now let’s open the Telehealth layout and add the background gradients. You can paste the background gradient to a module, section, or row by clicking the three dots or right-clicking in the section settings and selecting Paste Background. You can also paste the background with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + V while you hover over the module.
Start by adding the gradient background to the “Reinventing the Wheel” section.
For the “Some Things are Easier From the Couch” section, set the background gradient position to Top Right so that it blends with the section above.
Next, add the background gradient to each of the circular blurb modules surrounding the image.
We need to adjust the text and icon color for these blurbs so that they stand out against the background gradient.
Next, add the background gradient to the “Become a Member Today” row and the testimonial modules in the next section.
Finally, add the background gradient to the footer, and you’re done!
Now let’s take a look at the final design with the pastel background gradients.
