Rosellas Desktop Wallpaper and Calendar desktop

One of my favourite birds that frequent our garden would have to be the pale headed Eastern Rosella, Platycercus adscitus. These birds are not as colourful as their cousins the Crimson Rosella and nowhere near as bossy and argumentative as the smaller lorikeets that manage to displace them from the bird feeder!
The image I've used for my desktop wallpapers is one of nineteenth century painter, John Gould's fabulous coloured engravings from "Birds of Australia".
To complement the image I've used papers from my Colours of an Australian forest collection.
There are 2 different desktop styles and 2 different colourways. Both zips have a desktop wallpaper in 4 sizes, one with and one without a calendar for August.

Colours of an Australian Forest-scrapbook papers

There are 6 different papers in this set of forest inspired grungy background papers.
Two are the more conventional Eucalypt forest colouring ..2 have a wintery feel and 2 reflect the forest at night.
The papers are 3600 X 3600 and are fairly heavily textured as you can see from the detail below. I think they would work well for contemporary images and also any heritage photos.

A Neat Bow Script *

This script for Paint Shop Pro will create a neat bow using the materials of your choice, whether solid colour, gradient or pattern.
The resultant file is in 2 layers without a drop shadow, so that bow and ribbon can be used independantly..
The finished ribbon is 12 inches X about 1/2 an inch at 300 dpi [3600 X 131 pixels]
The bow is approximately 4 inches X 1 inch
Mid to darker tones work best and less "busy" patterns will show off the lighter colour of the ribbon edge better.
Images will reduce well for "taggers".
Script has been tested in versions PSP 9 to 12
Commercial use OK but please read TOU enclosed in zip to download when you purchase.
Cost is $2.00 USD
You do not need a Paypal account to purchase but can use a credit card.
I will email download details on receipt of payment, so please ensure your email details are correct and allow at least 24 hours to compensate for time zone differences.
