Thank you, everyone!

I've also revealed the entries in the challenge entry post.

Now, discuss! How did you make your icons? Techniques, tips, difficulties?

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for my icons! It feels amazing to be appreciated, especially since it was my first time participating in the challenge.

I used PSP 9. For the 'running up that hill' icon, I made the hill with the oil brush (giving it that scratchy look) and used a stock photo of clouds and another stock photo of a bird, set to screen and multiply respectively. I drew the hill's outline with the pen tool and then clicked on the line I drew with text to make it follow the path. Voila! I love how it turned out.

I used the same pen tool/path technique for the 'love love love' icon, drawing it on top of 2 layered light textures by peyton_oxxo @ LJ.
