Tranquility-A Desktop Wallpaper

I have been busy making masks in the last few days and a spin off was this image which I converted into desktop size- although a bit smaller in this version.
The old engraving I used was of Cotoneaster sp. These have been laden with berries this year. Perhaps we are due for a cold winter?
If you would like a copy for your own desktop, you can download a zip with larger images and instructions, HERE

Many thanks for all the super comments regarding my "In the Pink Papers!
Here at last some elements which will co-ordinate with the papers.
Again more heritage in style :)

"In the Pink" Scrapbook papers

When I was creating my last desktop, I really had in mind to make a new scrapkit using again the Fringe flower.

I hope you like these pretty papers which I thought could be used for contemporary or older style images.

Soon I'll add some co-ordinating frames and other extras.

I've placed a zip in my scraps folder on 4 shared. It is free to download HERE.

I'd love a link back to this page if you use the pages in a layout or tags online :)

The Shipping Pages Scrapkit Extras

    I have included as extras for this scrapkit zip:
  • 3 blocks for text [or whatever :) ]

  • 1 brad

  • 1 wee anchor ornament

  • 1 bit of red tape or divider

  • 1 frame [and no it doesn't come complete with Capt Scobie !]

  • 1 stencilled text overlay

I used the font JJ Stencil with some "grungy" texture to create the text overlay. It is available from http://www.haroldsfonts.com.

You can download these extras from my 4shared files HERE or HERE

The "Shipping News" - Heritage Scrapbook Papers

These two backgound pages for a Heritage Album were created to display information for my Family History. I have some antecedants who served in the Royal Navy but I also thought they would suit some of my emigration records too.
In the next posting I will add some extras to decorate the pages :)
If you use them in any online published material, I'd love a link back here :)

One is 1536 X 960 pixels [widescreen]

the second 1280 X 960

You can download a zip with them both, here or here.

The Potato Vine _ A Desktop Wallpaper

Yes it looks like Spring!

But no. This pretty creeper, Solanum jasminoides is found in many Australian gardens, flowering at the end of Summer and early Autumn.

I used a photo taken by my son in Canberra last week to put together this desktop.Thank you Paul!

You may notice that I have used the background paper from my floral scrap page as a mask for the background!

If you click on the image above, it will bring up a larger image to download.

If you have a wider or bigger screen, you can download a zip with other sizes, HERE.

Welcome to the first day of May!
