Some Old Fashioned Rose Seamless Tiles

These rose backgrounds are quite large seamless tiles 1000 X 1000 suitable for either printable or web design. Please feel free to recolour to suit your own tastes :)
I've also included in the zip a transparent .png rose image.
If you use any of them on your webpage, I'd love a link back to here!

The rose is one from my garden...a lovely single rose Golden Wings, which I have given a pinkish tinge here which doesn't exist in nature.

You can download the zip HERE

An Art Nouveau Heritage Scrapkit

I had my paternal grandmother in mind when I created this scrapkit. A bit formal and hopefully elegant enough for her!

I deliberately selected tonings that would complement sepia images, but please feel free to adjust to your taste.

Jane Eliza HANDFORD married my grandfather Wilhelm Carl KRIMMER in August 1903 which was right at the height of Art Nouveau fashion. ...a fashion most common from 1890-1914.

This kit contains papers and elements all created by me in Paint Shop Pro from dingbats and copyright free images.

If you use these elements in an image posted online, I'd really appreciate a link to my page.

You can download my kit [6.4 MB] HERE or if you would like just the two background papers [1.37 MB], you can find them HERE
Here is an example using some elements from the kit:

The two papers are .jpg images 1600 X 1600 . All are at 200 dpi.

You can download a zip with them all from my file sharing page , here or if you have any trouble with the download, also here.

Printable swirly album page backgrounds

When I created these papers, I was aiming to produce something that would be suitable as a background for old style photographs as well as modern.

I have put them all in a zip which you can download here. [or here if you have any download problems]
The zip contains:
6 co-ordinated swirly patterned papers [.jpg]in monotone pinks and greys suitable for a mini album or as a feature on a larger 12 inch by 12 inch page.

Also 4 co-ordinating border overlays 2 pink/red and 2 grey [latter not illustrated] in transparent .png format

The grey papers and overlays are very suitable for recolouring to suit your project. [They look good in sepia :) ]
Papers are 8 inches X 8 inches at 200 dpi

Overlays are 8 inches wide.

I'd love to hear if you have found them suitable!
