The end has been coming for theoldvicarage for a while now. I ran out of steam with icon making and, to be honest, I felt like I needed a fresh start. A new journal was in order. You know, I've never had an icon journal this long. I'm proud of myself for keeping it up. And I've had lots of fun making the icons I've posted and getting to know some of you through them. Hopefully that'll continue over at thornfield

Hope to see you over there!

Icons #105 - Jane Eyre [01 Oct 2006|02:41pm]
I love the Brontës. I love the Beeb. I love Toby Stephens. Needless to say, I loved Jane Eyre ;)

there was no possibility of taking a walk that dayCollapse )

And I'm now up to speed with my affiliates so everything should be sorted :)

Icons #103 - Classic Movie Stars [19 Jul 2006|01:43pm]
[ mood | hot ]

I've done some of the requests and things and I'll do more soon. I just didn't want to wait ages before posting because I hate coding huge posts. Anyway, in this post - too much Robert Montgomery (although can you ever really have too much) and various other gents and lots of beautiful ladies in their glad rags.

play something light and sweet and gayCollapse )

Further Requests [15 Jul 2006|05:44pm]
This week's challenge over at icon_crack gave me a snazzy idea - to remake some of my icons. So, going with the classic movie star theme, you're quite willing to go over my posts here at theoldvicarage or over at starleticons_ and choose an icon/some icons for me to remake. Please choose ones made from photographs as opposed to screencaps because it's pretty unlikely that I still have that same screencap and I don't feel like going through and making one of the exact same frame because it would be rather time consuming - I'm sure you understand. Anyway, I think it'll be rather fun and a good excuse for me to make lots of icons. And yes, I am still working on those requests from earlier, as well as doing other things of my own.

1. I know a lot of you are history buffs so I thought that you may be semi-interested in a journal I have set up to house book reviews, photographs, art, anecdotes, whatever, relating to the world before 1918. It's all very new but I'm terribly excited. So - ladyaudley

2. Comment to this post with pictures, not galleries, of your favourite classic movie stars (classic being anyone who was at the peak of their career before the end of the 1960s) and I will icon them. You can post as many as you like and I can't promise that I'll icon all of them but I will give it a shot. Lesser known people are appreciated but I can cope with the Audreys and the Marilyns. So give me your pictures!

Icons #101 - North & South [07 Jun 2006|09:44pm]
I'm reading the book so I felt the need to icon. Yeah. Thornton does strange things to a girl. Featuring silly fangirlish filenames. Ah, to be Margaret.

I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sillCollapse )

Icons #100 - Multifandom Post of Doom [29 May 2006|06:01pm]
I've been making lots of strange icons lately, and I just checked to see how many I had in my 'yet to post' folder and discovered that there were 90. Seeing as the next post was to be my 100th, I figured that I may as well make 10 more and post them all. They're very varied in subject, style and whatnot, so there's probably something for everyone. Also, there's nudity in one icon, but it's an art icon so it's tasteful. And it's Andromeda which makes it alright anyway.

stoop and feel it, stop and hear itCollapse )

1-6: The Best Years of Our Lives
7-14: Mythical figures in art (image name contains artist and subject)
15-43: Classic actresses
44-47: Doctor Who - The Idiot's Lantern
48-64: The Secret Garden (much Dickon love because I want to marry him - when he gets a bit older)
65-82: Bleak House
83-85: Gigi
86-88: Cover Girl (my instant pick-me-up film)
89: Jin (because he's pretty)
90: Tony Leung (because he's also pretty)
91-94: Cat On A Hot Tin Roof
95: Chungking Express (because it's also pretty)
96-100: Gilmore Girls (icons of suckage)

Icons #99 - Veronica Mars *CONTAINS SPOILERS* [10 May 2006|09:17pm]
I've been on the biggest Veronica Mars kick these last few weeks. So I gave in and made more icons. My last Veronica icons were apalling, I'll readily accept that, but some of these aren't so bad. These are all from episodes 2.20 and 2.22 but mostly the latter so please don't view them unless you've seen the episode. Most aren't that spoilery but I really don't want to be the cause of any upset.

my mind will not accept that in your grave you must remainCollapse )

Icons #98 - Requests & Others [02 May 2006|11:09pm]
This is such a bits-and-bats sort of icon post. I really have no idea what's in here. Also, I'm sorry if I didn't do your request this time but I'll try do them all soon. I just felt like posting because I had a good sort of number to post with. And I'm bored. And I need another icon post before I get to the big one oh oh. Also, style-wise, these icons are pretty... simple but messy. Fun fun fun!

some fools fool themselves I guessCollapse )

Request Time! [27 Apr 2006|11:09am]
I don't know what to make icons of so I thought I'd ask for your help.

Link me to some images, as many as you like, and I'll try to make icons of them. They'll be in the style I want to make them in and they'll all be completely and utterly shareable. I might not make them all, I'll see what works. Try to choose images of high quality because that will make me happy. And please only link me to clean images. I'm not going to icon anything objectionable anyway so.. *shrugs* there's little point in linking me to them. You can choose anything. Any fandom, anything. I'd really like screencaps rather than photographs because I find them more interesting but I will icon any type of image.

Yeah, I think that's it =P

ETA: I'd really appreciate it if you could just link to images and not galleries. And pleeaaase don't be really vague because I'm in a lazy sort of mood and hunting for pictures really isn't what I want to do. If you are vague, I'm most likely not going to fulfill your request.

Icons #97 - Multifandom [24 Apr 2006|09:29pm]
I am completely unable to stick with any one fandom for too long although I promise that my next post will be one fandom. At least I'll try to make it so. I also tried to stop making boring icons but I'm quite sure that didn't work. Alas. Also, Photoshop stopped working so it took me days to find a working graphics program. Blah. And if anyone can tell me what on earth causes the huge gap at the top of my page before the icons, I'd much appreciate it =/

it's rather dull in town, I think I'll take me to ParisCollapse )

Icons #94 - Miscellany [16 Apr 2006|07:44pm]
I've got so many icons on my computer so I'm going to have to post them in seperate posts as I absolutely detest those huge posts. They'll be relatively fandom-friendly so if you're coming for one particular sort of thing (the art, the period dramas etc), you can find them all easily =) So here we go, the first post. Mostly modern things and whatnot.

Read more...Collapse )

Icons #93 - North & South, 2046, Little Women & Wuthering Heights [27 Mar 2006|07:25pm]
I've quite enjoyed making this set. They're all of things I've been enjoying lately - 2046 (which is a brilliant, colourful and original film and anything with Tony Leung is fine by me), North and South (makes the fangirl in me squee, I mean really. Thornton? YESPLZ.) and Wuthering Heights (Laurence Olivier. Need I say more?). There's also a couple of Little Women icons. So I hope you enjoy them as much as I loved making them, hoorah.

with all your faults I love you stillCollapse )

01-16: 2046

33-34: Little Women
35-44: Wuthering Heights

Icons #92 - Old Hollywood Glamour [24 Mar 2006|07:07pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Just some super simple black & white icons of a collection of glamorous and fabulous classic actresses. A number of icons are made from scans I have yet to post. Must remember to do that!

some others I've seen might never be meanCollapse )

Scans #7 - Classic Movie Stars [19 Mar 2006|10:25pm]
More scans, this time better quality. I'm so impressed with this book! I've not even scanned half of my favourite pictures yet.
