The craziest, most mixed up batch of graphics, ever.  
Yep, I'm screwin' everyone up again with random stuff.  But I can't help it if I find something I like.  Lots of Andre ladies, snag away.  I was in an Andre mood.  I need to work on some others, such as Attila or Terry as well.  Next project.....*giggles*

Comment, credit, snag, looooove.....

I don't mind the use of the textless icons as bases as long as you give me credit for the coloring.

To save time and because I'm lazy as hell (but I don't want to offend), unless specified, all tutorials, bases, brushes, textures, etc..that are used her are listed under my memories.  I add them to mems as I go, so they should be there.  If you have a specific question about where I found something, I'll be glad to try and answer you. ;)

18 Katherine Heigl icons

Banners:
 
The above banner has a bit of room under the butterfly for extra customization, such as your journal name or a fav saying.  If you would like for me to add a customization, please reply to the post with your request.  If you do it yourself, let me know, i'd love to see what you add.

How did you do the coloring for Katherine ? It´s so beautiful !!

Thanks very much!
Umm...I took the pics in sets, black and white ones and color. I don't remember the exact formula as I just played around with them, but for the color, I created a new layer and desaturated it, then used brightness/contrast to emphasize her features. Then I lowered the opacity of the b&w layer until it there was just a small amount of color that peeked through, enough to give it a soft tone. Then I went to filter/noise/add noise and gave it a grain, playing around with the settings. I believe I kept monochromatic unchecked, but you can play around with it to see if that's what you want.
For the b&w pics, I used a coloring program I have that does sepia tones, but I also think you can use photo filter/sepia and it will work the same. I duplicated the layer so I could set the opacity the way I wanted it, then added the same noise filter to it.
Then I added one of these two swirls, set to screen:

I hope that didn't confuse you. I'm really not good at tutorials. I do my creations by trial and error and most times I'm not even sure how I came to the final product. ;)
