Bases and Icons by Maggie

Yesterday only bases, today icons too! :)



You arrived at m_for_maggie's icon journal! :) IT IS FRIENDS-ONLY!

It was firstly created only for base posting but later I’ve became addicted to icon-making! :) In my icons I usually use stock photos, brushes, textures, lyrics, and famous quotes. They are posted in specific themes or totally random! My bases consist of stock photos (random or with a theme) but eventually (not many times, though) I make fandom bases.

You are most welcome to friend me, but please follow my rules! I only add the ones who give proper credit to icons. I check out your userpics to see if you give credit to ICONS (I don’t request credit for bases).

Wanna see some samples of my work? Here you go. Icons:


Icon sets are posted only here, in khushi_icons and obsessiveicons but base sets are also posted in basicbases. My posts are always FRIENDS-ONLY, even in communities!

You may visit me at my personal journal, but I must warn you: there I only write in Portuguese! :D

- Please credit bases_by_maggie in keywords or icon comments (if you don’t know how to do it, ask me) or in your userinfo. I know, I feel terrible to ask you this, but that’s the only way other people can find me and besides icon making involves a lot of work and creativity, much more than bases do! :(
- Leave a comment telling me what you take. That way, I can keep track on your preferences.
- I’d rather you wouldn’t change my icons.
- Don’t claim them as your own!
- No hotlinking, please!!!

- No credit needed.
- Please, leave a comment telling me SPECIFICALLY what you take. Don't give me the "taking a few, taking a lot, taking several" talk. I think I'm not asking much. Every base is numbered for that reason. It's for your own good, because I ask this to keep track on your preferences and make MORE of what YOU LIKE. YOU are the ones who lose by not telling me which bases you take.
- Customize!
- No hotlinking, please!!!
- Take what you want and enjoy!

See them here, in a public post.

You can find them in this public post!
