It has been almost a full ten years since my friend tZ2
created my old icon and it is a massive 50x50 pixel change for me. My old one was appropriate, and I'm sure you all knew and recognized me by. "I like pink, therefore, I am"
it proudly stated everywhere I went. It's no less true but it didn't really define me anymore as an icon."So much thought into 2,500 little pixels!",
you might be thinking. But this has plagued me for the last few years.
My new icon shows my change as an artist, different from the pixel-text me when I was 13 years old and chatting to people in Comic Sans MS with magenta fonts.
What it is now is my very favorite type of pink bead, the one, in fact, that makes up the majority of my Princess Peach Bead gown. Silver-lined, permanent finish, opalized pink in size 11.
I pretty much die every time I hold the beads in my hands. They're glorious
Hopefully, soon, I'll be updating my journal CSS with a corresponding layout. I love what you did for me, FloraLuna
, so many years ago, but it is time for the orange and green 60s wave lines to go on and take their place in history.
In finalization to my previous journal about the sequins: I was indeed overthinking it. I included instructions for doing 36 count over one in the previous set of princesses and that was just plain silly of me. I don't think anybody in their right mind is going to do it that way.
So I am just going to plan for 18 count like normal.
I will be stocking the sequins myself for my Etsy store and they will, unless something drastically changes, $2.50 for enough sequins + a few extras to get Esmeralda's skirt properly finished. If I can manage the time I will do a sample section of her skirt myself and include it with the pattern.
Side step: if anyone has a PSN they'd like me to add, just say so.
I can't do much of anything online but I'd love to connect and oggle your trophies.Pinky My Catalog
