Free July 2016 Desktop Calendar

Hello there,

I know it's the beginning of Summer in the Northern Heisphere, so I will try and keep it short for you all out there.
Although I am allergic to wood dust, and my skin won't get along with it.. I love, love, love creating stuff out of wood, like for example hair sticks and baord games.
I wanted to create a digital, wooden Boho-Style Table/Tray out of wood 'scraps'.

I used the clone tool, different layers & layer masks. Cutting wood digitally & the use of the grid. option. Playing with drop shadow alternatives.Also a bit of dodge & burn was used again.

I can only hope you like this one. Since it's one of my personal favourites of this Year.

Are you still reading this blog? ;)
Are you heading for a staycation or do you have something planned for this year's Summer Holidays? Like going abroad...

And if you're from the Southern Hemisphere, does it feel stupid how blogs are so Northern Centric when it comes to the topic of Seasons and the likes? :)
Tell me, tell me...

Yours, 
 Nokta

Free June 2016 Desktop Calendar

Hello dears!

May has gone by so quickly. I am shocked to say the least.
And though I am a tad bit late, I have the June Desktop Wallpaper with me.

For this I used the clone tool, different layers & layer masks. Changing the colouring, and giving it a slightly 'canvasy' look by using & mixing different textures.
Also a bit of dodge & burn was used, where it was needed.

I wanted to give it that grainy, stark feeling of some of those old retro photos. Being bolder with the colours yet having that slighly dreamy feeling.

Well, on to the Wallpaper for June 2016.

I hope it is to your liking.

What about you?
Did May pass too fast for you, too? Anything coming up this Summer?
I would love to hear about it!

Yours,
 Nokta

Free May 2016 Desktop Calendar

Hallöchen!

Another Months has come and gone. It's time for the free May 2016 desktop Calendar.

I have been ill for most of this months so I was 'able', or rather had the time, to look through a few 15 year old memorabilia and I remembered my time in the UK.
This unique shop, Tiger Lily, in Oxford which used to sell penis shaped noodles and opium scented incense sticks and that lovely, old hotel in London, Regent Palace Hotel, I stayed at for some time. :3
*sighs* Good times.

I did remember two things best.
01.) After the great fire of London, the houses were built of stone. Cut stone, brick stone, etc.
02.) Everywhere you go, you have those distinctive street signs.

I used the clone tool, different layers & layer masks to change the brick stone wall partially. I wanted to see if I could change these stones, without it being visible which part was and which was not in the end.
Then creating the centre piece in the style of Street name plates from London.
I also wanted to work out a (semi-)realistic looking bevel and drop shadow for this plate.

Ok enough of my blabbering, now on to the Wallpaper for May 2016.

I hope you like it.

How's your health?
How a you, any major changes in your life?

Yours,
 Nokta

Free April 2016 Desktop Calendar

Greetings, Lovelies!

The 1'st Quartile of the Year has come and is about to be gone. The month April is soon knocking at our Doors. With it Spring (North) or Autumn (South) in tow.

From now on I will post the Desktop Calendar a day or two before that Month actually starts.
I feel as if that way I might actually get it to spread more on the internet. I mean, it's free. So why not try? :)

This time I thought of a Sottomano (desk pads). They're my favourite classic items on the Desk. No real writing/work space is complete without one of them.
Also, I was trying to create an unique texture out of many different textures, playing with blending modes and layer masks. This new texture in turn was used for the different pages.
I used 4 colours, for the 4'th month, 4 Seasons, 4 Elements, 4 Quarters of the year and so on.

So without further ado, the Wallpaper for April 2016.
April2016-DeskCal
I hope you like it.

How has the first quarter of 2016 been for you? Anything new? -I hope it was a good year so far.

Yours,
 Nokta
