Apologies to everyone, both of us mods have been suffering from what is commonly known as scatterbrained disease. So we're just going to take a break, and resume our regular schedule this Sunday with a new Episode Themed Challenge.

Just so everyone knows, we never got any entries for Challenge 07 - Keep Calm, so it's been closed, officially. Hopefully the next challenge gets more participation!

Anyway, we hope to see you all bright and ready to make icons this Sunday for Challenge 08. :)

Hey guys, me again. :p
Just letting everyone know that we still have 0 entries for Challenge 07 - Keep Calm. That means that unless we get some more entries before tomorrow, we'll be canceling the challenge and moving on to a new one. If we get a few entries and some more interest, we might extend it, but that's only if we get some entries.

It closes tomorrow night at midnight(GMT), unless we extend it.

Hey guys! Just a quick reminder about Challenge 07 - Keep Calm. It's really simple, so I encourage everyone, not just the icon makers, to give it a shot!

All you have to do is make a fun "Keep Calm and Carry On" type icon or two, and we can all enjoy the wonderful crack that's sure to come.

This theme was suggested by the ever-lovely mustbethursday3. It's a bit different kinda challenge, so we hope all of y'all will participated, if you're an icon-maker or not.

I'm sure by now you've all seen some of the "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters as icons or the like, right? Well for this challenge, you get to create your own! You can see several examples by amaranthine3 here. They're really quite fun!

You can find out more about Keep Calm and Carry On here, as well as a generator. They don't have to fit a specific or strict format, but they need to have the basic handful of lines in the "Keep Calm and Carry On" format. You can use the text in a regular icon, or on a text-only icon. It's up to you!

-You may only any images or resources you like for this challenge. Images may be used more than once, but the icon must be visibly different.
-Each icon much be centered around a pairing. You do not specifically have to have two people in each icon, however, the theme must be shippy in some way.
-Icons must be new and made for this challenge specifically. They must remain unshared and anonymous until the winners for each challenge are posted.
-All icons must meet LJ's requirements; .gif, .png, or .jpg format, 100x100px, and less than 40kb.
-You may submit a total of 5 icons per challenge.
-Brushes/textures/text/blending are all allowed; animation is not.
-Each challenge runs for one week.
-Comments on most posts are screened, including voting and submissions.
-Please make sure you have read the rules here.

Again, the generator can be found here, and if you would like to use screencaps or such, you can find galleries here and here.

Challenge closes next Sunday the 13th at 2400 (GMT)
