How to join CSS-Babes?

Challenge Weeks 13-14

Sun Aug 30, 2015, 11:20 PM

Week of August 24th

Challenge : Monochromatic

:icongillianivy: suggested by GillianIvy 

Cyanotype, selenium and sepia coated coffee stains, black & white and greyscale...  So many shades of monoshade!  Two tone is a favorite of mine, and why not add an extra splash of color?  I've always loved those black & white portraits with a subtle shade thrown in (or not so subtle).  Journal skins designed with a limited color palette tend to look elegant and refined.  Sort of a nod to the classics.

Week of August 31st

Challenge : Back to School

:iconcelvas::iconposerfan: suggested by Celvas & poserfan 

Well, this is ironic...  The reason last week's articles are late is because of this very thing.  I started third grade homeschool on Monday last week and proceeded to be completely exhausted of my will to do things like check my e-mail, write articles, click 'like' on Facebook...  Instead, my minuscule free time I spent watching shows I missed and longing for more free time.  I fantasized about being one of those Moms who drinks wine after school each day as I took a looooong shower.  And no, I don't even really drink.  The last alcohol I had was probably around St. Patrick's Day.  

One of my favorite things about back to school season would be all the supplies.  So many beautiful notebooks and pens!  And things I do not need, but I want them!  So, it is the very first thing I think of.  Images of pens and papers and composition notebooks (why do they all have that marbled cowprint look?), lunchboxes and book bags...  And of course, school buses!  And let's not forget classroom decorations.  So many ideas for journal skins.

Their birthday is coming up.  So, be expecting big changes....  I am surprised they are redoing the icons already.  We haven't had these very long and everyone is just now used to it.  Senior and CV haven't changed yet.

But thanks for sharing your fix.  I don't know how the site will look next week.  A mixture of anticipation and fear.

Oh yeah, that's true :/ I guess I should leave the rest of my frantic fixes until then.

And it's a shame because I really liked the old icons, these ones not at all.

Frantic fixing is good, helps everyone else who is screaming at the glaring orange that does not match the rest of the site right now and messing up their skin color schemes.  Neutral colors would've been so much better...

Oh, I remember you (group)! I'm intrigued and happy to see you're active again, I also read the journal you've posted about rising the group from ashes... :D
I wonder, what submission limit are you having for the members or Babies?
GillianIvy Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Members can't submit, only Babes can.  There is no limit, it is subject to vote.  And the favorites section should be open to all, I believe.  I made a lot of changes to acceptance options, hopefully I haven't fubared anything too much!  Except one thing :shifty:  shhh!  

So, submit away!  I'll be adding everything from the feature to the favorites section whether or not they are member/babe.  I think things can be submitted to both places?  I have no idea!
