Distressed Blue & Brown Background

  1. Your backgrounds are awesome. I have used many as I am always changing my blog. I love this one. I just change my header and this looks great with it. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I really appreciate it.

  2. Hi Kathleen,
    Your header looks beautiful!! I'm so glad you found a background here to go with it.
    Thanks for your comment,

  3. Hi there! Thank you so much for this!!! I love it!

  4. Can I ask for a favoure? Or...its just an idea for you headers. Could you do a header with achors and/or some other "seastuff"? It could look good. White and blue could be the colours, because it's the typical sailor-colours. You know what I mean? :) You dont have to, but it could be nice. Remember: just an idea! :)

    Anni, someone who loves yor headers! Very good work!

    P.S. sorry for my english!

    I have a question. If you could have a look and tell me if there's some way to bring the photo to the center? Is is possible?

  27. Hi Cygnus,
    If you can resize your header and make it a little bit smaller, it should pop right into place.

  34. I love this background -- so much so that I'd like to use it as the background on my wedding invitations. Even though the background is free, I wanted to double check with you regarding using it on my invitations. Will you give me permission to print this on wedding invitations? I'm happy to cite you as the designer.

    Thank you!
