sometimes they work. emphasis on the sometimes.



it's not me, it's you.



bigger and scarier than anything I can find under my bed.

Ahh! Prettiness! <3 I think your Harry sig is my favorite... if only because he actually has green eyes. XD


Lol, jk. I actually really love your blend. It's so... interesting. I just want to sit here and stare at it for an hour or two. (x [if only I had that kind of time]

Hi Val! you're incredible!! :drop: I mean....can I have this?(;


if you don't make a tutorial, I will be very mad :glaring:


ok no I won't, I lied. I just really wanted to use that emoticon :P


your really do have incredible stuff though. all your banners are spot on - even your vertical ones! I think those are much harder. I also love the simple complex that you incorporate into your images.


^perfect song choice


just really great stuff! I can't wait to see what else you come up with in the future!

How have I not commented here before? I feel so bad, Val. Please don't hate me!

But you know I've always been a fan of your graphics. You pull off dark stuff so well in ways I wish I could!

I especially love +this signature and your first two banners (although I hate Katy Perry, haha).

Anyway, I have finally corrected my lack of gallery comment here! And we haven't talked in ages so I am going to your profile to say hello. You better still love meeeeee!
