Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Aye, thought I might give a little more perspective on why I named my blog Wings of Salvation. My previous skin, the seraphim one, was done extremely quickly. People have different ways of expressing anger, and besides my flurry of bad language on the day before that, I was still brimming with anger when I woke up at like 6am. So I did the seraphim skin extremely quickly. As for this new one though, I took my time doing it. My internet connection was severed, and although I can see the wireless connection of my home, I suddenly couldn't connect to it. So since I was so free with no internet, I took my time looking through my computer for a cross I haven't used in my designs before. After that, I spent around 3 hours designing everything else and touching up everything.
So how'd I come up with this effect? Actually it was an accident. I was just playing around with different blurring effects in Photoshop since I rarely use them, and I found it worked very nicely when used with wings. Why wings? I doubt any of you will remember, but Karen Hoi used to have the words "Wings*tt*Praise" as her regular nickname in MSN. Like you know, my regular nickname is "† P§¥KØ †™". So since I chanced upon her profile, I decided to add wings to the cross with that memory. I used it in one of the songsheets for a cellgroup meeting and it looked nice. So, since I wanted to change my skin, and was pressured to by Liang Teh, I thought I might as well do it. I called it Wings of Salvation because the Holy Spirit descended "like a dove". Hence, the wings. There you have it. Zheng Xuan, your girl was my inspiration!
