Graphix N Words

Icontests

Grphxnwords is an text icon challenge community. The main focus of each challenge is a theme with some words on the icon. The text doesn't have to be legible, just there. It's kind of the opposite of a HUSH icon community. Thank you and be sure to check out the links below or the userinfo :)

Icons

You may post icons here as long as you read the rules. I will be able to tell if you haven't.

Reminder [April 02, 2006]

shadowshamrock
Hey guys there are a lot of ties for challenge 24. If you haven't voted please vote here.

Also there are only 3 icons in the waiting for challenge 25. I know extending it won't do any good so if you'd get your entries in before Monday at 11 I would be really thrilled :) Enter here. Also no one said that the newfound way of doing challenges was hard, so I'm predicting the theme wasn't liked. I hope that was the case and if so I would like to know if I should just scrap it and start over with 26 on Monday :)

What's Going On [March 27, 2006]

shadowshamrock
[ mood | impressed ]

I officially love icontestlove cause she always gives me ideas that are creative and make me not want to give up :) SO just to state there is going to be four parts to each challenge. BUT you can only have TWO icons.

this is the example she gave me that I absolutely love.

We supply:
1) One screencap (or promo pic, whatever...)
2) A theme
3) One stock picture (or fashion pic)
4) Lyrics/Text of some sort

For example:
1) Screencap from Love Actually
2) Theme: Love
3) Stock picture of a rose
4) Lyrics 'Too Lost In You' by the Sugababes

Great. Hopefully that should be enough to work with.

Reminder [March 26, 2006]

shadowshamrock
[ mood | more like worn out ]

Hate to bother everyone again but this is your final reminder to get your entries in for challenge 24. I'm either going to hand the community to someone else or close it completely if there isn't going to be participation. I'm tired from work and this icon community is starting to make me feel really sad. I know you guys are all more creative than pretty pictures. So if anyone wants to take the reigns, please let me know. I'll be more than happy to hand it over. I tried everything... I really have.
