I've just joined because I am in desperate need of some simple Victorian-style background tiles. I need something for a layout background that is not too busy and will not distract from my header. I'd prefer the color to be somewhat close to #01164D. Thank you!
hillarygayle suggested I make some spring flower tiles, and I liked the idea. So I went hopping about the Internet, looking for pretty flower images. Then I realized something--I love flowers! Before I knew it, I had 28 images.
I tried to get two images of each kind of flower. I wound up with three rose images, and I don't know what kind of flowers the ones in Red, White and Blue are. Also, Sacrilege is so named because bluebonnets are supposed to be blue, not maroon! (g) Leave it to Aggies to mess with a perfectly great state flower!
