New header change ....  
I still love Billie (obviously, duh, she's Billie!), but I really loved how this graphic came out and the colors worked with the layout, so I thought I'd proclaim my Sheldon and Penny love by changing my header for a little while.

OMG! You love Sheldon and Penny and yet you're NOT a member of "Paradox!?!?!?" It's the sheldon_penny comm. I'm co-mod and it has grown from 50-some members (when I began co-modding) in mid-December to almost 800. It's got great fanfic, fanart, fanvids, tons of great discussion. You got to get there and join in the fun!!!!

No Billie? :O

Again, I still adore Billie -- but I've had her -- and solely her! -- as my header for like six to eight months now. I just wanted to give S&P some love. It'll go back to Billie.

Well, aren't you just a fickle one! Poor, poor Billy, being discarded like that! ;)

Looks beautiful, though. :)

Fickle?!?!? Billie's been my header for six to eight months. My ONLY header has been Billie. I just wanted to give Sheldon and Penny some love.

Thank you. :)

Yeah, yeah, your devotion span is six to eight months... I say fickle and I mean it!!! lol. :)

I really like how the filter works with the image. Usually I don't like the artistic blurs too much, they tend to give the images such plastic feel. But this is really nice.

I still love her, I just wanted a different banner to promote Sheldon and Penny. I'll go back to Billie soon enough, I'm sure.

This was awesome how it worked. It's actually four different textures using different layers, with the image laid in between four times with different layers with just a little blur. Unfortunately, I've yet to find another Sheldonn/Penny image it works with. I'm going to be going through Billie, Doctor/Rose, Jason images too because I do love the effect, it just takes particular shadings and contrast in the original image to work.

I'm messing with you, dear! :))

That sounds interesting. What kind of layer effects did you apply? I think I would like to try that, too. :)

1. Base texture - normal
2. Sheldon/Penny image - color dodge
3. 2nd texture - overlay
4. Sheldon/Penny image - linear light
5. 3rd texture - overlay
6. Sheldon/Penny image - linear light
7. 4th texture - saturation
8. Sheldon/Penny image - Lighten

And then I flattened the image, and used the "blur more" filter twice. Again, though, the shading in the image itself really has to work with the colors to work. Some came close, but they cast odd lights/shadows on their faces, etc. that made the actors look unattractive in that light, or it flat-out didn't work. I'll keep trying this on other images though because I do love the end result.

Heh to your icon. But you know me, I must defend my Billie love! lol!

Love the textures! And the end result is really good. I must try some of mine with these guys. :)

No need to defend the Billy love. I know it didn't go anywhere. :))
