It's so boring! What's wrong with me? I have no imagination right now! HELP! Maybe it's the FONT! It's to busy?

I didn't think pink icicles would look right. ;)

TIA

You need a different font, period. Also the scattered circles don't really feel icy, add more ice textures to the background.

Icicles aren't smooth, they are bumpy. I think the text icicles are too dark, lighten them up. :)

aww not that much blur! :( :D :idea: ohh maybe select the icycles that were sharp. then go Selection>shrink>2-5 pixels. then make a gaussian or motion blur (slight). then Select>Deselect.

(off-topic) Amy, This is for you, check the last page viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7024

That looks pretty good, I still don't like how the text icicles blend in, but I'm not sure how to fix that. :)
