After a 5 year hiatus, and a new laptop, I've started making icons again, and a lot has changed since I posted to my former icon journal locations, so I decided a new one was in order. You can now find me at undomielicons.

And a teaser from my first post.

Better late than never, I suppose... and yes, I totally "cheated" and used tonight's cap for bowtiesnbonnets for this. ;)

Hi!  
I've had my old layout up since last August, so I decided it was time for a New Layout, and when I'm not busy making/posting caps to bowtiesnbonnets, I've been working on some icons to post at lace_parasol and windsong_icons. So, hopefully within a few weeks I should have something to post! (Life has been really busy lately, so I haven't had a lot of time to work on them.)

Hope you're all doing well! Tell me what's new in your life, if you want to. :) I've been exploring new interests, like belly dancing! I've also been loving the latest season of Doctor Who, and Alice in Wonderland (2010).

I've been busy for the past six weeks or so putting together a "Cap-a-Day" community with my dear friend jess_squirrel at bowtiesnbonnets, where we'll take turns each week posting caps from favorite movies and television shows. I do hope you check it out and watch!

Featuring Amy Pond, from Doctor Who. It features one of my current favorite quotes.

"The good things don’t always soften the bad things; but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."
-Doctor Who: Vincent and the Doctor


One of these days I'll figure out some use for this journal that's more than just announcements of things like layouts and communities...

I will now be posting my icons to two places - at windsong_icons with autumnjoy, and lace_parasol with maiden_of_stars. They are both very dear friends and I'm honored to be working with them. :)

When I haven't been iconing, I've been quite busy on my Tumblr's. And yes, I have several.

A Merrier World - A collection of words and quotes.
Chiffonwings - My random, fandom, things that make me me blog.
The Secret Life of Daydreams - A fashion style and house design "inspiration board".
Said The Princess - Ethereal... Whimsical... Beauty.
Teacups and Rain - Whatever doesn't fit the themes of my other blogs goes here. Generally, it's Something Beautiful, but occasionally it might be funny or cute. :)
I'm On A Special Diet: This is Gluten Free - Pictures of foods that are gluten free.

If you follow me, would you mind leaving a link to your tumblr here so I know who you are? :) I can't promise I'll follow you back... I'd love to, but it can take me hours to keep up with my dashboard now, and so I'm constantly trying to weed out the ones that don't seem to have as much in common with my interests as I first thought, but even so, it's still overwhelming.

I made a new layout yesterday. I stuck with the Twilight theme so I can still use the lovely icon mata090680 made for me as my default icon. I hope it's not too dark for you as it is rather dark on one of my monitors... it looks weird though if I try to brighten it up. Hope you like! :)

I didn't start out planning to make a picspam. I was just going to make a quick text list of the things I liked best about the film to share with my friends. Then I decided that it needed illustrations, and voila! Picspam! Two weeks later, and this is the result. I hope you enjoy! There's lots of little comments about what I enjoyed. Also, be on the watch at windsong_icons. I made lots of icons from these scenes that I'll be posting in parts over the next month or so.



I will find the place where I can see him again...Collapse )

I am looking for a new webhost, and if you can suggest one, it would be greatly appreciated! It's been so long since I've needed one that I don't even know where to begin to look. I would prefer one that has a yearly, rather than monthly plan, but I'm open to anything at this point. Thank you very much!

P.S. I thought I'd let you guys know that for the first time in about a year, I have half a batch of icons made and ready to post. I'm hoping to have time soon to finish the other half and post it at windsong_icons. (It's been a stressful, exhausting year, let alone several computer problems, that have kept me from making them.)

Things I Love
Things I Love is a new feature I am adding to my journal. Every so often, I will make a post linking to various blog entries, and occasionally other websites, with things that have caught my eye throughout the week(s). For the past couple years I have posted posts like these on my personal journal, but wishing to avoid public posts on that journal I decided to move them here. I have made two backdated entries with the archives of those posts. I hope you enjoy looking through these links!

Archives: December 2007-2008January-March 2009


Things I Love: From March 17th to October 31st, 2009Collapse )

P.S. Happy Halloween everyone! :)

Please note that the author of this post may not agree with all views presented on these blogs. Sometimes, maybe not even all views expressed in an article posted here - sometimes I just find things interesting and thought provoking. Also note that most recipes linked to have not yet been tried by me. Oh, and I can't eat gluten, so anytime you see "GF" it means it's a Gluten Free recipe, but many of them are workable for you regular all-purpose flour people… if even all it does is provide inspiration.

I have a question for all you graphics people out there. Are there any good graphics programs out there for under $100 US dollars? I have a friend who is wanting to get into icon making and is wondering what program to use and I really don't know what to tell her. I use PaintShopPro9, and I've had it for 4-5(?) years so I don't know what the current (affordable) standard is in icon world.

Also do you know anything about Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo x2 Ultimate? She found it on Amazon.com for $44.99 but I know nothing about it, and don't know if it would be what she is looking for or not.

Thank you! :)

Just a quick note that I put up a new layout. Twilight related this time. Pretty happy with the way it came out. :)

On a Twilight note - lims_twilight is open for sign-ups for their next round. I won't be participating this round - having a hard enough time remembering to make my icons for austen_lims but maybe next time. :) Still, thought I'd mention it if anyone wanted to participate. :D

And, just yesterday, my friend tinuviel428 created a new icon journal to house her icons. Check them out at different_sky - her work is fantastic! I've always thought so. :)

I'm planning on participating in my first LIMS (Last Icon Maker Standing) and I'm a bit nervous about it - I'm always afraid that I'll forget to get them in on time and stuff like that, but at the same time I'm kind of excited about it! Anyway, thought I'd promote it.

I put up a new layout that I made.... I think it's a bit overwhelmingly yellow, and perhaps a bit too faded, but there is still something I really like about it, despite that.... and I don't really feel like fussing with it anymore. ;) The little text is paraphrased from the Switchfoot song "This Is Home" from the Prince Caspian soundtrack. I was listening to it a lot when I was working on the header and it just seemed to fit the feeling of it, so I used it.

Sorry all I ever do is post about layout changes on here. I have plans to work on some icons that I can post at windsong_icons sometime in the near-ish future, and I'm also hoping to rework my paid account layout tutorial, with detailed picture instructions. It may take me a while to do it, but I'll get to both, eventually.

I put up a new layout last night. It features my latest obsession... Twilight. I'm still undecided whether I prefer the header in B&W or color, so I may or may not be switching it back and forth over the next few days. Also, I'm hoping to edit my user info page soon. It badly needs to be updated.

Wow. I haven't written a tutorial since the summer of 2006! Yikes! This tutorial is based off of this set of icons and was requested by elerrina_amanya. Part 1 explains the steps I take on almost every icon I've created for at least the past year, if not longer. I thought it deserved to be seperated from the rest of the tutorial.



Image program: Made in PSP9 (Probably would work on lower versions.) Probably is translateable to PS.
Level: moderate beginner to intermediate (Because of the adjustment layers.)
Additional Tools: These textures from graphic_sl - Circle Texture, Curved Texture
Notes: Please do not duplicate my icons, or the icons in this tutorial. See tutorial for additional notes.
