Icons - Inspired by Giles Haikus from SOG 2013, all worksafe

I am so behind in last year's and this year's SOG - I can't believe it's already my posting date! I promise to continue going back through all the entries, many of you will continue to receive delayed comments! :)


I like to challenge myself with icons - so this year for SOG, I took inspiration from the awesome haikus of last year's Giles Haiku Day! I selected just a few from the group and have made an icon that, to me, represented the idea or moment of that haiku.

And to make it even more challenging, I made one regular icon, then another with one or more textures created by the talented Jordanna Morgan/Wolfbane.

Thank you so much to the lovely haiku writers for allowing me to play with their toys for this entry. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them! :D I have attached each original haiku to the icons, with full credit to each writer.

Please feel free to take and use, please just credit. Enjoy!
