Outlander-ish icons - Battle of Culloden and Mamma Mia! (icon requests) @ 10:16 am


Happy New Year everyone and welcome new members!

I know I haven't posted in forever, but I've been doing other things, I'm really sorry. But, I made 6 new icons that are Outlander/Dragonfly in Amber related in regard to the Battle of Culloden and Bonnie Prince Charlie, for you military enthusiasts. Another one is sort of A Breath of Snow and Ashes related of an American colonial 18th century man with a long gun. He's not Jamie, but it gives you an idea of what the gun was like - they were long! All books by Diana Gabaldon and her Outlander Series.

Update: I've since posted some Colin Firth icons from Mamma Mia and 2 Ralph Fiennes - help yourself!

About future icon posts, I really need some inspiration, I don't normally do this, but if anyone has any requests at all of icons, any kind, post your request and I'll see what I can do. I got the DVD for Mamma Mia, so I can do anything in that now. I hope this can get me out of my icon rut.

Credit is nice, but not necessary, but post if you take something - thanks!

6 Outlander icons @ 09:05 pm


I've made some Outlander icons of various characters from the series. I've been experimenting with different people other than Gerry Butler as Jamie. And I've made an icon with Diana Gabaldon's ideal Claire as well! Credit is wonderful, but not necessary. However, I would appreciate it if you would comment if you're going to take any, since I like to know how well they're received, and it helps me when I'm deciding what to make in future posts if I know what went over well. Let me know who like or don't like as Jamie. I like this Claire, and I intend to make many more icons of her with this actress.

Stay tuned, I expect to post some more icons next week too!

An early Valentine's Day post... more romance novel covers, some from icontests, (scroll over the icon to see what the book is that I used.) Also some Austen icons (some from icontests).
