Free October 2016 Desktop Wallpaper Download


So it's almost October, my month... my favourite Month!!
Autumn is getting better, rainier, colder... :)

And with it all comes a new Desktop Calendar.
This time I wanted to make a loew key piece, since I really just tried my hand on smaller things, partially using traditionally pieces, which I digitalised.

I hand-dyed and aged a new Din A4 size piece of paper then scanned it. I used not just tea, but red cabbage.
I distressed parts of the paper with a tea bag, roughing its texure.
Then I created an aged piece of paper with the same dimensions, but digitally.
Afterwards I did blend both textures together... with old folding marks, scratches and all.
Adding the border and a few extras like the main star sign of the month (according to the Western Astronomy) I tried to give it the last final touches.

I wanted it to be a bit more simplistic, really focusing on mixing different mediae.
I hope you like it.

I have been a bit absent again this month, RL in general was very favourable but also time consuming.
I hope to remedy this soon, so I have a bit more time for this blogging hobby.

What have you been doing?

Free September 2016 Desktop Calendar


so it's 2/3 of the Year 2016 gone, hm?
Summer's end is nigh, at least meteorologically speaking.
The whole World lives on credit... foodwise.
And what have you been up to? :)

Me, I have been lounging and done some work.
Then some good old stay-cation and some more work. :)
Afterwards I went back to my monthly game of creating a wallpaer calendar for September.

While working on it I did notice, that I actually needed to work more on bevel, shadow and texture work.
I scanned some of my own hand stained papers to add a 'used' feel to the wallpaper. ( I stain with black tea, coffee, red & purple cabbage, etc.)
Also trying to work out a better type of cutting and blending to let items look more real.

Here it is, September 2016

Hopefully you'll like it.

We had some very hot days over here, somewhere between 30 to 38 °C (86-101 °F), which is so not typical for Northwestern Europe, and I didn't really like it.

What about you, lovelies? How was your Summer(northern hemisphere)/Winter(southern hemisphere)?
Are you waiting/wishing for some cool evenings? Colourful leaves?
Sitting in a cosy corner of your home with a book/pet on rainy days?
I would love to know!! ^_^

Royalty free stock Image

Hello, Lovelies!

A littles less than 6 months ago I became a member at pixabay to share stock images, which I created but won't use personally none the less.

The first one was this...

royalty, free, image, PinkPanthress, Floral, Squares
( 3000 x 3000 pixel Original size )

...and it seems to be a hit, so I thought of sharing it on this blog.

If you can use it, have fun & share what you created with it.

Please credit, critic, share/link & if you like comment.

Free August 2016 Desktop Calendar

Hey hey,

I hope you all had a good time so far... 2016 sure goes by fast.
And with a new month another Desktop Calendar is there.
This one was more 'experimenty' so to speak. :)

This time I was trying to play with scratches, different shades & fog to create a texture form 'Scratch', using different layers & layer masks, too. I wanted to recreate a stitch border, with yarn texture and gaussian blurred shadows beneath the letters & numbers. Also I created a pattern & put it on top with opacity set very low.

I hope you like it. ;)

Work & health have been a bother these months
I hope to get into blogging again around end of August or beginning of September... when it's cooler and Autumn is closer.

I hope to be more around, too, at that time.
Anything you want to say? Anything new happening? Tell me! :)
