Free September 2016 Desktop Calendar

Hellö,

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
September2016-DeskCal

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!! ^_^

Yours,

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.

Yours,
 Nokta

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! :)

Yours,
 Nokta

Free July 2016 Desktop Calendar

Hello there,

I know it's the beginning of Summer in the Northern Heisphere, so I will try and keep it short for you all out there.
Although I am allergic to wood dust, and my skin won't get along with it.. I love, love, love creating stuff out of wood, like for example hair sticks and baord games.
I wanted to create a digital, wooden Boho-Style Table/Tray out of wood 'scraps'.

I used the clone tool, different layers & layer masks. Cutting wood digitally & the use of the grid. option. Playing with drop shadow alternatives.Also a bit of dodge & burn was used again.

I can only hope you like this one. Since it's one of my personal favourites of this Year.

Are you still reading this blog? ;)
Are you heading for a staycation or do you have something planned for this year's Summer Holidays? Like going abroad...

And if you're from the Southern Hemisphere, does it feel stupid how blogs are so Northern Centric when it comes to the topic of Seasons and the likes? :)
Tell me, tell me...

Yours, 
 Nokta
