Songs of February

It could happen that there are misspellings in these lyrics since we just copy and paste. If you notice that, please infrom the mods (and make the icons with the correct spelling ^.~)

Month: February
Song:It's OK Love by Saybia

This is the song you're challenged to include in your icons;


It's OK Love by Saybia
[listen to a sample]

Caught in a well
between heaven and hell
it's getting lonely out here
highways and hotels
and headliner shows
it's all just making me sad

Sorry if I ever let you down
I never meant to
stayed inside the only world I knew
'till I forgot
that nothing is as beautiful as when
I am with you
and life isn't life out there
without you here

Just when I thought
there was nobody out there
no one who quite understood me
I glanced to the side
and I found you there smiling
patiently holding my hand
saying over and over
it's ok love
easy love
I'm here

So finally I'm ready to reveal
what my heart tells me
bring out all that's good inside of me
and let it shine
knowing that I'll never be alone
while I'm with you
and that life isn't life out there
without you here

Just when I thought
there was nobody out there
no one who could quite understood me
I glanced to the side
and I found you there smiling
patiently holding my hand
saying over and over
it's ok love
easy love
I'm yours

Mod-post

Mod post!

Don't worry, nothing horrible going on.


Firstly I want to say that we couldn't have gotten a better start of the year! Very first day we got two new members and January has been one busy month, whoopa. More claims than ever before. And I hope it continue that way! Tell your friends, drag people here, the more the marrier ^^

While I'm at it I want to remind/clarify you of some rules people have either asked about or had trouble with:

  • Your title icon shall only include the song's title. Not anything else from the song, ok?
  • The text on all icons shall only be lyrics, not character names or anything else. If you want to use tiny text, that's fine, write whatever you want, as long as it's completely unreadable.
  • You can only claim this month's lyrics, not lyrics from like October.
  • You can claim absolutely everything, we mods will just have be creative in our categorizing XD
  • You may very well use stock images and such, no worries. As long as it's motivated.
  • The texture icon should have a quite visible texture not just a small colour blo somewhere or a gradient to colour it. Don't be afraid of textures!

    If you are the least unsure about a rule or if an icon counts, as lets say desaturated, don't be afraid to ask!


    The has been changes too!
    Starting with February there will be three alternatives instead of two. This cause many of you have started to claim like 5 claims or something. And cause we wanted to spice it up a little ^.~
    This brings me onto a little warning I suppose I should include. The third alternative is Closer by Nine Inch Nails... it has been chosen cause it is totally naughty. So there are bad words and some porny imagery in there. And it will be inetersting to see what icons you can come up with XD

    The other change is the Claim list. Since one of the rules is that you can not claim the same subject/song como as someone else I've added the song in the list too. So it will look like:
    Stargate: Atlantis | Rodney McKay | It's OK Love | unsung_hero_99
    [that was the first claim of the month]

    For February we mods also want to show that we do listen to you guys and suggested songs. So the first two alternative songs are user-suggested ^^


    Lastly I wan't to push you a little. Try to make your icons as different (from eachother) as possible! Don't be afraid, see this challenge as an opportunity to try new techniques, brushes and fonts!



    Good luck with this month's challenge and keep up the good work!

    Mod-post : question

    Hi again lovely community members.
    I forgot one thing in the "big" mod-post (and I'm lazy and doesn't log in to the mod account, bad me)

    I have a question (ok several tied together) for you, it is important that you aswer it!

    We have had the main song uploaded for sample listening every month, it's not the case this month. (Sure, if you want it ask us mods. We have it and love it XD)
    Do any of you download it? Is it necessary? Does it help you get in a creative mood?
