New Icon & Paid Account!

<-----------------Check out my new icon!!!

It was made to my specifications by the lovely mara_snh , because, although I have ideas, my photoshop skills are nil. Isn't it awesome? I think it's awesome.

It's a screen cap from Phantom Traveler, and if you listen to the DVD commentary on that episode when they pan to that shot of Sam, Jensen says "Think, Sam - Think!" and it cracks me up every time.

In other news...I now have a paid account. I just couldn't juggle around with 15 icons anymore - whenever I wanted a new one, I would have to get rid of an old one...and I love them all so much. I actually have a folder on my computer called "icons" that has over 100 images in it. Not all from SPN, my former loves Naruto, Avatar, and random other things are well represented too.

But, you know what a paid account means? Customizable Journal! It's a slippery slope, my friends. I forsee me spending the next few days going a little "customizing" crazy. I apologize to those who want updates or new fic. I know I've been teasing some of you with my fic ideas and then not writing them - I am horrible that way.

So now Sam and I must THINK about how we want my journal to look....oo, the possibilities are endless....

ETA: Crap. I apparently don't know how to customize my journal...I need an "Idiot's Guide to Customizing LJ"

Cool! I will totally take you up on that.

Firstly, I want to know how people put header-pics in...I've got a screen cap that I want to use.

Ah.......thats one of the things I don't know how to do. Ive had a look through the help section for journal customizing and I can't see it there either. I will investigate for you.....

(gigglesnort is for your icon)

No worries! We will discover it together! There are other things that I want to do that you have done, but I'm not sure exactly what I want things to look like yet...but I will bug you when I have!

I actually really like the colour scheme of my current layout...I just thought it'd be nice to jazz it up a little bit.

Sad!Sam is sad that he can't help you with a header-pic, despite his awesome scrunchy-faced, YED-bestowed demonic powers. :-(

If you find out let me know.

I am loving my crazy new Twin Peaks theme. Everytime I see it it makes me giggle.

Ok....
Umm...there's something about having a "theme" layer and then there is a code that you copy and paste into your "theme" layer.

I'm going to go try a few more things, I may be back...

ETA: Ok! I managed to find a tutorial that showed me how to put in a header in my current theme "smooth sailing"...so yay! How does it look? A little big, I think. Plus it seems a bit redundant to have the picture header and then the written header..but whatever. I'll figure that out later.

Let me know if you know anything about theme layers...what I'd ultimately like is sort of a cross between this theme and your theme with a picture header.

Oh wow! I love the picture that you've chosen! Which episode is that from?

So you mean you want a backgroud image as well?

I think the picture is from the end of Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things...it's definitely S2 anyway, because it's when Dean pulls off the road and tells Sam that he thinks their Dad died for him.

I love the picture because not only do you get a full Impala-shot, and the boys, but you also get to see how absolutely gorgeous Canada is ;-)

Anyway, I may change the words on it, or make the picture a little smaller, the one I have up now was mainly just a test.

I was thinking about a background image yeah, or just another colour along the edges. I'm not sure yet though.

Its beautiful, and weirdly, its almost exactly what I was imagining originally for the opening of my Twin Peaks/Supernatural fic...
