Blog Background - Teal & Chocolate Damask Grunge

I recently created this ornate damask pattern from a piece of antique fabric. I've been having so much fun playing around with it, and today I came up with this teal / aqua and chocolate combo, that I grunged up a bit! I hope you like it.

This free background was made to be used on a Blogger blog using the Minima template for the standard number of columns.

Follow these instructions to easily add this background to your blog:

1)Make sure you are logged in and then click "Customize" at the top of your blog.
2)Click on "Add A Gadget"
3)Scroll down the box and click on "Html/Javascript"
4)In the "Content Box" cut and paste the Html code posted below.
5)Click "Save" and you are done!

<style type="text/css">body {background-image: url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }</style><div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:10px; top:30px; z-index:50;width:172px; height:51px;"><a href="" target="_blank"><img

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. hello!
    I love this frame!!!
    I try to put it on my blog but i'm on canalblog and i get some troubles... :)

  10. Hi Milouson,
    All of my blog backgrounds are sized for Blogger blogs. I'm guessing Canalblog uses different size specifications then Blogger, which is why it doesn't work correctly. I'm afraid I don't know a thing about Canalblog so, I can't really advise you at all.
    So sorry!

  11. thank you, blog fairy, for making these free lay-outs. for html dummies like me, you are indeed a fairy. :) i used your tan and cream damask background for my blog. thanks!
