Some Outlander, M&C, Sweeney Todd and various others @ 05:54 pm


I've made some more Outlander icons of various characters from the series, Claire, Frank and Jamie. I've also got some Master and Commander, a little of Austen related icons and just some stock I was fooling around with. 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.

More Romance Cover icons and many others... @ 11:45 am


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). Also, misc. icons including one from the book Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides which I just finished - excellent read, I highly recommend it, and one icon of Heath Ledger from Casanova RIP.

And hey! We're over 200 members now - thank you!!

Austen, North & South, and The Count of Monte Cristo @ 06:03 pm

Current Music: Girls Just Want to Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

Another post - in the same week!

This time around I have various period icons, including 7 icons from various Jane Austen movies, 4 from North and South and 2 from The Count of Monte Cristo. Many from icontests, if you scroll over them, you'll see where they were from. I'm starting a series on some "moods" P&P ones, this is the start, if you like them, I'll make more. All P&P caps by me. More P&P icons with be forthcoming from both versions - I'm on a kick.

23 Kisses... @ 10:11 pm


...or some are near kisses. I don't know what's gotten into me - it must be Spring fever. I've spent all day making kissing icons from many of your favorites! I made one each with and without text. Enjoy!

This is my first batch, I'll try to make more of your favorites, I'll throw in modern ones too - this batch was all period films.

Credit is wonderful, but not necessary - hope you enjoy them!

Please do not alter or add text to my textless icons, thanks!

12 Jane Eyre icons @ 09:28 pm


I've simply fallen in love with this movie. I'm sure this is the first of many Jane Eyre icon posts to come, though I will intersperse other favorites in between. I also have some "Emma" icons from the Gwyneth Paltrow version.

Comment, credit and enjoy. No hotlinking please. Please do not alter or add text to my textless icons, they are not bases.

Crediting is lovely, though not necessary. But, if you choose to do so, credit goes to julielu or crymeariver_ I do like to hear from you if you take one, though, since it helps me to know what went over well for future posts.

A polyglot of icons @ 05:22 pm


I know it's been a while since I've posted, I've been busy with my new job and don't have as much time to make icons anymore, but at least I haven't stopped completely - nevah!

I've got a cornucopia of icons this time, I've been saving them up. Mostly Austen based, because I recently saw Sense & Sensibility again and loved Alan Rickman in it. Also some of Emma, (both versions) and some P&P3. 10 Pirates, 6 Master & Commander, mostly of Pullings (I know a few people who are crazy about Mr. D'Arcy), I couldn't make up my mind, so some have borders, some don't, some have text, some don't. Also, I have 3 Outlander icons, from the books by Diana Gabaldon. I finally made a David Wenham icon of Jamie, he's another favorite for casting, and I chose Tom Hollander as Tom Christie, who is the actor I picture in A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I have them headed as all from that book, but the ones of Roger and Jamie can be from any of them. I've also got some Narnia icons as well, all from various challenges. I also have a challenge entry from The Libertine 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. No hotlinking please. All caps are made by me, unless it was from a challenge.

ETA: Oh boy - thank you I now have over 100 friends subscribing on my friends list! You're the best and so supportive and generous with your comments! Thank you!!! :H

6 Master & Commander, 10 Pirates and more of your favorites! @ 10:49 pm

Current Mood: nervous nervous
Current Music: Is She Really Going Out With Him? - Joe Jackson

A little bit of this, a little bit of that. I'm reading Master & Commander by Patrick O'Brian, at the moment (love it!) and there was a certain part in the book that inspired me, just as Jack is announcing that he intends to land with the party of men for a raid on Spain, which involves a lot of running.

'Me sir?' cried James.

'Yes, you, sir; I am going ashore.' There was no answering the decision of this statement, and after a pause he went on to the detailed arrangements. 'Let us say ten minutes to run from the cove to the tower, and..."

'Allow twenty, if you please,' said Stephen. 'You portly men of a sanguine complexion often die suddenly, from unconsidered exertion in the heat. Apoplexy - congestion.'

'I wish, I wish you would not say things like that, Doctor.' said Jack, in a low tone: they all looked at Stephen with some reproach and Jack added, 'Besides, I am not portly.'


So, I give you some rather silly 'portly' icons of Jack Aubrey, trying to come to terms with his, er... his 'genteel figger.'

I also have some Pirates, some Autumn-like icons from the book, Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon and Anne of Green Gables, and Sharpe with Sean Bean, all from the 1st DVD and some Jane Austen icons! Enjoy!

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. No hotlinking please. All Sharpe and Anne caps made by me, Pirates caps from challenges and thephotobox, and M&C by makeitstopjamie.

P&P (2005), Narnia, POTC, DMC, lots of stuff! @ 07:15 am

Current Mood: amused amused
Current Music: Breakaway - Art Garfunkel

Multi-fandom post, including some from Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man's Chest (yes, I'm joining the many ranks, since I just saw the movie), Narnia icons from various challenges I’ve entered and some photos of royalty in movies, like Elizabeth and A Man for All Seasons (since I just read The Other Boleyn Girl and loved it!) Only 1 Outlander icon of Fergus as depicted by Orlando Bloom for Voyager, (credit to tempest_icons for the tutorial and this style) some icons of Ioan Gruffudd from some challenges, Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson from the upcoming Woody Allen movie, Scoop, and some various Austen and Pride and Prejudice (2005) icons, some from challenges intermixed with them. You may have seen some of these icons already, but I'm just trying to keep them altogether with their particular fandom. Pirate caps from thephotobox, P&P3 caps made by jfran2258.

Comment, credit and enjoy. No hotlinking please. Please do not alter or add text to my textless icons, they are not bases.

Current Mood: tired tired
Current Music: Whatever Gets You Through the Night - John Lennon

Various icons from different fandoms, trying out some new techniques, some kind of dark or way out there! LOL!

1 from Anne of Green Gables
4 from the BBC version of Emma, (one of which won first place at austen_stills)
1 from Sense and Sensibility that was entered in a challenge at austen_stills as well.
1 of Richard Armitage from his new endeavor as the artist, Claude Monet
2 of Colin Firth from his most recent work in The Last Legion (or whatever they're calling it now.)

Multi-fandom Post @ 10:09 am

Current Mood: lazy lazy
Current Music: Rio-Duran Duran

It's been a while since I've posted, first I was on vacation in Florida, then my laptop was being repaired and overall, I just haven't been in the mood. But, I'm getting motivated again and here's my first batch. More to follow as I get back into it.

Below you will find multiple icons I've made from various fandoms this time, some unfortunately, only one in each: Pride and Prejudice (BBC series), Anne of Green Gables, Emma (BBC Series) (from a cool tutorial by garishlight), and Dragonfly in Amber, the book which is a part of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.

Please credit, comment, share and enjoy.

Please no hotlinking and no altering of my textless icons, they are not bases.
