It's a small offering, I know, but if you click on the image below it'll take you to my deviantART account where I've shared a similar wallpaper. Best I could think of for a virtual Easter present. ;-)

And this was simply too adorable to not share...

Happy Easter everyone!
olde_fashioned: (18th C. -- Romney ivory)
This is a monstrous collection of 18th century icons. I've got loads of batches that I haven't gotten around to posting, due to being busy, and this is only one of them. There are more 18th century paintings than you can shake a stick at, from so many different artists that it was quite a feat to keep track of them all! Where I couldn't discover the name of the artist/painting, I've put "unknown" next to as much information as I have.

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (TDK Batman Begins -- carry me away)
More icons of The Dark Knight, some left over from when I was making my first batch, others made when I was in the mood for TDK (Heath Ledger's win was about the only good thing about the Oscars) and also some Batman Begins and iTunes-style humor icons thrown in. ;-) I had so much fun with all these!

Most of the others are from promo pics on sites kindly shared with me by [livejournal.com profile] visionsbeyond (thank you again!), so you can blame thank her for my succumbing to the temptation of using the hi-res pics on the two wallpapers that I made to match this grouping. ;-)

olde_fashioned: (N&S -- true love (train car kiss))
In honour of Singles Awareness Day St. Valentine's Day, and you can partially blame [livejournal.com profile] spikesbint and [livejournal.com profile] kf_creations with their recent N&S batches, for getting me in the mood. ;-)

Lots of black-and-whites and alternates, (and two wallpapers!) and I went overboard on the kiss again...just a little...*halo* But who's gonna complain?? If this scene doesn't do it for you, then you're either not human or just not romantic.

olde_fashioned: (winter tree)
My Christmas batch this year is hopefully something everyone will like; I didn't have as much time as I had hoped, but oh well.

Forty icons of various stock trees and chickadees, nearly all with the theme of winter. I think trees are gorgeous and chickadees are adorable, and there is also a winter tree wallpaper with a Robert Frost poem on it for those of you who want something slightly festive and yet not overtly so. ;-)

Merry Christmas everyone! )
olde_fashioned: (TDK -- Gordon watching and waiting)
What began as a small batch of promotional images and posters, rapidly evolved into a ginormous post as I found more and more iconable things, and began entering icontests over at [livejournal.com profile] tdk_still. The reason there are so very many is because I have been making them on and off ever since seeing the movie in August, so they've been collecting for a while. ;-P

I know, I know, it's not the typical thing you see me making icons of, but hey, I really like the movie, and find it very visually interesting. Thus it makes good icons. There are also two wallpapers for those of you willing to stare at a picture of Batman everyday, lol! ;-P

And yes I am aware of what comes out on DVD today...mwahahaha! ;-D

''Let me get this straight. You think that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men on earth, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands. And your plan, is to blackmail this person?'' )
olde_fashioned: (1920s fashion -- a la mode)
You can blame my watching the BBC House of Elliot series for this batch. ;-P These are one of quite a few batches made a while back but which I haven't gotten around to posting them yet.

Four dozen icons and three wallpapers, all with the theme of the 1920s, mostly Gazette du Bon Ton fashion illustrations, but with some Vintage photos as well. :-) I was really aiming for an old look with these, with the "scratchy" textures and whatnot.

olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- The Lady of Shalott)
Thirty stock icons all with the theme of Autumn, because it's almost that time of year again, and I know someone who loves fall as much as I do. ;-) Hands down the most beautiful of the four seasons, I had a lot of fun scouting for images and working with such vibrant colors. :-) I also made up a coordinating wallpaper just because.

olde_fashioned: (Default)
A massive batch of costume drama wallpapers, ranging from Pride & Prejudice 2005, the BBC's North & South, Jane Eyre, Emma, Lorna Doone, and 1950s fashion.

As ever, do not claim these as your own, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!



It is a truth universally acknowledged, that any person in possession of a computer, must be in want of a wallpaper. )
olde_fashioned: (PotO -- this is OPERA!)
A batch of The Phantom of the Opera icontest entries for [livejournal.com profile] poto_stillness. All are from the movie with Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler, and I've included two wallpapers as well because I just couldn't resist. ;-)

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy! (and if I catch you stealing, I'll sick the Opera Ghost on you!!)

olde_fashioned: (Scotland -- take me home)
I've rounded up a few icons that I've been making on and off for a while now, all with the theme of Scotland. ;-) Scottish castles, scenery, thistles, and a few Scottish paintings, including the very famous Scotland Forever! by Elizabeth Thompson. I've also included love banners and a wallpaper for those of you who love Scotland as much as I do. :-) I've been really in a Scottish mood due to reading and watching Kidnapped, lol.

As ever, my icons are not bases, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (18th century -- Copley blue sleeves)
Almost three dozen icons of one of my favourite subjects: 18th Century art and fashions! 8-D Most of these are by Thomas Gainsborough, but there are a few John Singleton Copley icons, as well two wallpapers.

I've preserved the titles of the paintings at the bottom and have numbered them to correspond with their sucessive icons. ;-) Mostly minimal this time around, because I felt it suited the portraits better. They're so lovely, they don't need any textures.

And yes I made one of Blue Boy. ;-P

olde_fashioned: (N&S -- a summer's romance)
I've been rounding up all the various images that have been collecting in my files, and so this time I've got 8 different wallpapers to share. :-D There are various ones of both adaptations of Pride & Prejudice, as well as one of North & South and several different fashion plates.

As ever, do not claim these as your own, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

Something as timeless as romance, as lasting as love... )
olde_fashioned: (W&D -- happily ever after)
Another perennial favourite of mine is Wives & Daughters. I guess I've been in the mood for Gaskell lately, and it's easy to forget how good Molly and Roger go together this series is. ;-D

Twenty-two icons this time, mostly of Molly, a couple of Cynthia, Lady Harriet (who totally rocks, in my very humble opinion) and a few of Roger Hamley. I also made a wallpaper and matching friends only banner, with complimentary icons.

As always, my icons are not bases, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

olde_fashioned: (S&S2 -- Marianne)
A batch of icons from the 1995 adaptation of Sense & Sensibility, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet, which is another one of my favourite movies. :-) These are mostly of Elinor and Marianne, with a wallpaper, and a love banner with two variations.

olde_fashioned: (JA -- Love and Freindship)
Three different wallpapers, with the first being a Watteau painting, the second a Regency fashion plate, and the third also having a fashion plate, this time from the 1830s. Please comment if taking, and enjoy!

''A clean gown has not five minutes wear in an open carriage.'' )
olde_fashioned: (P&P3 -- Jane pink ballgown (a))
Twenty icons of the 2005 Pride & Prejudice, and two wallpapers. A lot more of Jane and Bingley this time. Who cannot love that scene? I do not care if it's not in the book -- I think it's sweet :-)

Yes. A thousand times yes. )
olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- The Lady of Shalott)
Having recently become interested in making desktop wallpapers as well as icons, here is my first public attempt: John William Waterhouse's The Lady of Shalott. Fans of Anne of Green Gables will recognize the poetry. ;-)

I am half sick of shadows... )
