I thought the voting was pretty tough for this challenge. Such a great set of icons. However, we have some winners so let's see who they are. I've also made banners which you can find at the end of the entry.

Hiatus officially starts now. I am however going to be going back through the entries and checking for any unfinished business. Like banners that I haven't made yet. So keep an eye out for those belated banner entries.

Thanks everyone for your participation in the challenges here.
 
 
Before we get to voting I want to let everyone know I'm putting the community on hiatus for a while. I'm not sure exactly how long.

I also want to say how very sorry I am for not getting voting posted sooner. This is one of the reasons for the hiatus. It seems like I'm always apologizing for being late or forgetting to do something and that is not fair to you members. I know I'll get inspired to come back to this community at some point and start posting challenges again, but right now is not the time. I'm not going to say interest has died off in this community because I still think we have nice turn outs for challenges. But it's not fair to you guys when challenges and voting, etc. are posted late. I think if we all need a break and to come back fresh and inspired at some point in the future.

Now on to voting. I really love these icons. They are wonderful! I hope it fun for you all to share your favorite books. That was part of the objective for this challenge I think. Let's vote! :)

Hi everyone! There is still plenty of time, but I wanted to remind you about Challenge 123, the Book Cover Art challenge.



I hope you all think this is a fun challenge. It's pretty wide open as far the images you can use to icon. So you can be extra creative.

Thanks. :)

Welcome to Challenge 123 – Book Cover Art.

For this challenge we are going to be iconing book cover art. It can be the cover of your favorite books, your favorite book cover illustration or illustrator's work, vintage book covers, the skies the limit really. Just please no stock image generic book covers like the kind people use for textures.

I'm not providing any images this time, but there are some links under the cut to help you find what you are looking for and give you some inspiration. If you have any questions ask them in a comment.

Happy Iconing. :)

Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know that Challenge 122 is extended till this Thursday, July 26th. That's just a couple more days.

Another person entered which is great. But that still leaves us with only four people who have entered icons. I hope some more of you will be inspired to enter the challenge.

Welcome to Challenge 122 - Salt Cellars

Can't believe I didn't think of iconing these earlier. They are the perfect size for icons. I used to get these for my Mother whenever I ran across one at a garage sale or antique store. They are varied and beautiful and most of the salt cellars I got my Mom are made of glass. In the past salt cellars were used at individual place settings on the table. Such a great idea. No passing the salt.

I've supplied quite a few images, but if you have your own salt cellar images you are free to use them.

Also, this challenge is going to last a few days longer than usual because I have company this week and then I'm going to Comic Con and won't be back till the 18th.

Happy iconing!
