Experimenting on Background Layouts

I got inspired again to make background layouts for my blog when I saw Dallien’s Dusky Lily Kit.  It is in the shades of dark violet (violet being a favorite color of mine) and the elements are really superb.  Take a look at her kit….

and this is my corresponding header for the violet layout…

and this is the matching header for the brown layout….


These two background layouts are actually my second attempt on doing background layout.  I will be using them if and when I am “tired” of my present layouts!!!! 

Here is my initial creation which I did out of two template kits of Amanda Thorderson Digital Scrapbook Designs, Butterflies are Free and Chugs No. 5.  MyPhotoBlog site is now sporting this layout…



As much as I want to offer these layouts as freebies, I still can’t because I don’t have any idea yet as to how those “file-download sharing” works.  But if somebody out there is interested, maybe I just can send it via e-mail…

P.S.  So sorry that I immediately offered the background layouts as freebies at my sites.  I was advised that I had to ask first the permission of the designer if I am allowed to do so.  Anyway, I had already conveyed my intentions to the designer concerned and will keep you all posted about it.
