Christmas & New Years
Watercolor Backgrounds!

The following backgrounds are done for full screen or tiles.  The images that show some distortion  in their links are the full-screen sizes.  The real files are fine!

I took the liberty of trying something different with two of the backgrounds done on blue construction paper.  I discovered this paper is very grainy and so my scanner picked up all the texture in different thickness (due to water absorption etc.).  It was virtually impossible to make those seamless.  The Snowman had to be bordered in Paint Shop Pro and the Snow Splats on the blue construction paper had the tops and bottom fudged to make it as seamless as I could.  But it's not 100%.  ( I recommend that as a fixed background if you can't use text or graphics to distract from the line.)  All the rest are pretty seamless and natural.

The full-screen images of the Christmas Trees and Santa I did on the sides to make room for your own text and graphics.  They reduced down for link buttons lopsided.  But the real files are fine.

Our Rules:
I've found it necessary to place this on all pages.
Many do not enter via the main page.  For those that do, I apologize for the redundancy.

  1. PLEASE DO NOT LINK TO MY IMAGES! Download them and put them in your own directory.
  2. You must place Our Credit Button on your page; OR, If you use a word link, it has to be legible. I'm discovering sites using my images and NO CREDIT! :(
  3. These backgrounds are for personal homepages only (unless written permission is given by me.)
  4. They are not to be used for commercial use or any profit.
    This means only I can use them to create products for sale if I wish. But, not YOU! 
  5. They are not to be taken from this site and presented on any other internet page of any kind; or redistributed in any way!  I've found several of my images on two other watercolor background sites!!!  They have been cropped and enhanced but they are still my images. This is a violation of the DMCA!
  6. They are not to be altered, edited, overlaid, etc. from their original look and claimed as original works by another. (Remember, I own the originals on paper!) Resizing to fit larger monitors is allowed if done proportionately.
  7. For aesthetic reasons, I did not clutter these up with my name or copyright.  But all images (link buttons and files) are embedded with a digital watermark from:
