olde_fashioned: (Ever After -- just breathe)
[personal profile] olde_fashioned
Fresh from Round 1, my entries for the Last Icon Maker Standing contest [livejournal.com profile] costumelims. ;-) A bunch of various costume-related themes are all featured in this post, including but not limited to Jane Austen quote icons, the movie Ever After, one each of Pride & Prejudice 2005, North & South, Lorna Doone, as well as a few duplicates because sometimes I made multiples before deciding which to enter. ;-)

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

Teasers:
1 2 3

Please, if you take anything, be so kind as to take note of the numbers of the icon(s) you're saving, since I am always experimenting with my styles and I would like to know what people like best. (This helps me so I can make more!) The numbers are above the icons.

Lorna Doone always makes me think of those cookies. *sigh* My heart is in my tummy.
& I have to watch Ever After again. It's been too long.

Beautiful icons, by the way. I love the Dracula set...

LOL! I like the Walker's shortbread cookies, with the old Scottish paintings of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald on the tin...*SIGH*

Thank you for the comment!

You're welcome for the comment
and just yesturday I was shopping at my local Walgreens and came across a box of Lorna Doone cookies, thought of this post, and started giggling like a fool. I'm sure people thought I was crazy or something. Anyway, I bought a box. Care to share?

From: [identity profile] olde-fashioned.livejournal.com
LOL! Why thank you! I don't mind if I do. *giggles and takes cookie daintily*

Would you care for some tea? ;-)

Oooh! Why yes, please! I don't mind if I do!

(just had an awesome idea for a facebook profile picture: reading Lorna Doone while eating from a box of Lorna Doone cookies and sippin' from a cuppa tay)

Thank you!

I'm a late-comer to the Ever After fanboat, lol, but I think it's probably something I'm going to have to end up buying...if for no other reason than screecaps! ;-P It's just soooo pretttyyyyy....

You made such a great set of Dracula icons (really love #20)! The Ever After sets are just beautiful. =)

Aww, thank you! :-D

I really liked the textures you chose for the Dracula challenge; I kinda went hog wild playing with them, lol!

*sigh* These are gorgeous!!!!! I love love love #6 (great framing and soft texture use), #11 (everything -- text, colouring, crop etc -- is amaaaaazing!), #16 (really interesting crop and texture use), #17 (fab texture use).

I love your icons and the like! I just found a Jane Eyre C.E. Brock and thought... "does anyone else swoon and sigh over this scene besides me?"

O sorry, but I was wondering how in the world did you get rid of the advertisement that graces the top of live journals. I can't find out how to get rid of it. Thanks.

Thanks mucho. If I ever could manage photoshop, which is like a foreign language, I would so do it now. Bravo to your blessed ability! I'll try in the future!

Snagging 1 and 23, but all of them are great!

BTW Have you seen my other comment? (http://olde-fashioned.livejournal.com/118860.html?thread=2760780#t2760780) In case the old link to the pic doesn't work any longer here's a new one. http://scotch-and-sirens.waw.pl/mosaicmiddle2.JPG

Waiting for your answer with caught breath.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you! My mailbox is a mess, lol, and I've been incredibly busy.

You can use what you've made, since you've already made it, but typically I prefer people don't alter my graphics any. If you credit the graphic as "made by (you) using olde_fashioned's icons" then that would be fine. :-)

Thanks a lot!

I credited here: Credits: Header, Icons and Smilies (http://scotch-and-sirens.waw.pl/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4&p=11#p11), saying this:

50 Miles of Good Road's header is made by Sylwia using olde_fashioned's icons. All her icons are astoundingly beautiful. You can find more of them at her blog Olde Fashioned (http://olde-fashioned.livejournal.com/).

I'll also credit you every time anyone mentions the icons throughout the forum, as I expect people will, since they're all so beautiful.

Thanks once again. You've made my day!

Ah, I'm just glad I haven't said anything embarassing yet, LOL!

Hugs back to you, although I confess I had to look that one up. ;-P

I like #2 and #5....What does it say on #2???

Date: 2009-06-08 06:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] olde-fashioned.livejournal.com
Glad you like them! :-)

The writing on #2 is just a scribbly texture, I don't think it really says anything. ;-)

Have you ever seen Ever After? I bet it's something you would love, Lindy.
