Blog Background - Antique Sheet Music & Flourishes

Click on image to enlarge



Today's theme is made from some antique sheet music from my collection. I've grunged it up a little and added some beautiful white Flourishes!

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("http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq185/thebackgroundfairy/1abackscrollymusicreg.jpg"); 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="http://www.backgroundfairy.com" target="_blank"><img

  5. Hi Cat,
    If you have a Blogger blog, you do have the option to paste this into an HTML gadget box. Everybody does, I swear! After clicking on "ADD a Gadget" you will see it as the 4th one down. I promise!
    Good luck,
    Karen

  8. Karen- You are the background fairy! I am a brand new blogger and still learning how to use the tools. Can you tell me if your instructions on how to load the background is true for Wordpress blogs? Thank you

  9. Hi JWF,
    I'm afraid my instructions are only for Blogger blogs. I know some people have used some of my backgrounds with Wordpress, but I don't have a clue about Wordpress so, sadly I can't really help you there.
    So sorry!
    Karen

  13. Karen, Thanks for answering my question regarding wordpress. I just began to build another blog so, I will try to utilize your instructions there. Another item I wanted to mention, I'm the one who just purchased those cute clock knobs from you. I recently completed an antique inspired art group, love antique clocks, can't wait to see them. I wanted to post about them and share a link to you today if that's OK?

  25. Hi Carolyn,
    Yes, you did everything right. I didn't see any jumping when I looked at it. I will say though, I noticed you have the "snow" running on your blog, I have heard of people having trouble with that. That may be what is causing the problem.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you...Karen! The snow was the problem on my side of the blog...thanks for sharing...

    This one is made for Bloggers standard Minima template, you are currently using "Minima Lefty", try switching to Minima and see if that helps.

  40. Hi Karin,
    Quick question: should the 'tool' icon show when one installs the background HERE ? Scroll to bottom right hand column to see. Thanks!

  43. I think, Sheet music produced from the 1890s onward featured favorite songs from the stage. Later, movies and radio spread popular music even further into American homes. Performers associated with the original musical presentations were often depicted on the cover of the music, a side benefit for today's collector.

  44. This music background really resonated with me, so I finally tried it out on my blog page and love how it looks! I was scared to try anything new outside of the pre-made stuff they had because they aren't a BlogSpot site and the instructions aren't as clear as what you've given for Blogspot. But even though it's tiled, I like how it looks and wouldn't go back now for anything. I gave you full credit of course plus a link to your site so others can become addicted to your site and the art it contains!
