omg firstly, I just want to say how freaking cute your duck icons are!!

I always forget how cute ducks can be, forgive me xD

I think signatures are definitely your strongest graphic type but I think you're doing so good

:) I cannot wait to see more!!

Hi Sammi!


Thank you for dropping by, too! And I meant it about the icons - look at my gallery - I have none and for a reason, too! Haha! And thank you so much for your lovely words, truly <3 Using the same fonts repeatedly used to be one of my big critiques back in the day so since then I've gone and downloaded a tonne from the magical dafont and I'm playing around with them in the hope that the right one fits :) Thank you so soooo much! :glomp:

Hi Shona!
I love the uniqueness of your comp! Like with +this. You wouldn't expect it to work, but it does! I also like the comp on +this, as well as the colouring! Speaking of colouring, I also love it on the CI I already mentioned, and on +this signature. Your blend is so cool too! I like the contrast of the bright, colourful flowers around the edge and the dark, mono interior!

Hi hi!! Your gallery is so lovely, and your banners are to die for! So soft and pretty, with great texture use!

I also love that you're not afraid of bold fonts, they can add so much to a graphic!

Can't wait to see what other pretties you make :loves:

hey, shona!!! i wanted to return your lovely gallery comment <3
you've been working really hard on tda lately and your gallery looks so great, i am crazy about +this chapter image, the background is so subtle and well-done, not to mention the outstanding composition!

i also really love the coloring in +this sig, the pink shades work so well with the white, it's lovely.
your recent entry for the fruit challenge is also one of my favs, i really love what you did with the text and the general vibrancy of the whole piece.
i hope to see more of your graphics soon!! have a great week :dumbles::loves:

Dayna! Eek thank you!!! I remember when I started out and always had the same two and it was always my biggest critique, so I'm glad I've finally gotten rid of that problem haha Thank you for your lovely comments! <3 The number of hours I spent moving all those people around and flipping them back to front and changing sizes.. gahh D: :lol:Glad you think it seems to work okay! <3


Ashley! You are so so incredibly sweet - thank you so much for such lovely comments! :wub: Your words are very kind and I shall do my best to keep trying to improve in between throwing my laptop out the window! haha! But genuinely, I can't thank you enough for the feedback - it really does help to know what seems to work and why <3


Thank you all so much! So humbling to have such lovely comments :worship: :worship: :worship:

Hey Shona! :D

Dropping in to say how lovely your graphics are. You have a great sense of composition - I especially love it in your 2nd signature, chapter image, your 1st and 3rd (horizontal) banners. Your coloring is pretty too!

Do keep up the great work! :dumbles:
