Well I was sinking into your paint

Again several weeks passed since I last shared some textures. Life was pretty hectic and also a tad dramatic in the last few days, so that I just didn't find the ispiration or time to make something. Luckily I do have 14 days off which means that I hopefully will be more active here. We'll see. Anyway, today it's again textures and photographs time. Who is excited? Probalbly just me. ;D Well, this time the textures are again pretty random. Quite a mess to be honest. The set contains among others a map of Rome, two drawings of flacons, a collage, deers, a postcard, a Roman vase, a sign and so on. Download it and you'll see everything.
I just hope that the textures will be useful for you. Have fun with them!

And because I like to show you some of my photographs, I'm posting them today as well. ;D But please be so kind and don't use them without asking me first. Thanks.

lead me wild to your dark roads

It's been a while since I last made new textures. Before I share a new set, I wanted once again thank you all for the lovely comments you posted on my last entry. I'm still wowed by the positive feedback I got for the vintage textures. So thank you, everyone. ♥

So, because it's slowly getting warmer here and spring starts to show, I thought I could make some lovely, colorful icon-textures for once, instead of large, old ones. So here they are. I truly hope that they are useful and not just pretty. I reckon they would be good as backgrounds for icons or to give your graphics a light pinkish/orange colouration, when you set the layer mode in your Photosop to "soft light". But I think you'll come up with a way to use them anyhow. As usual comments make my day, so please be so kind and leave one, when you download. =)

And well, since this post would be a bit small with just the textures, I thought I could share four tiny spring photos I toke in the last days, to get you into the mood to be creative. Or at least that's my intention. ;D I hope you like them and if you want to use them for icons/graphics, feel free to do so, but please give credit.

let's go vintage!

Hey everyone!
Today I'm sharing a new textures set with you. It's been a while since I last uploaded some new resources, so it's high time to finally do it again. However, the set contains many lovely vintage things, such as:
a pocket watch, which will be great for all
Alice in Wonderland
fanart, two old maps (a nice add-on for all
Merlin/Robin Hood/Legend of the Seeker
fanart), a rose necklace, two clouds textures, an old frame, a negative, two vintage papers, a CD and a sheathing. Probably they'll be great to give your graphics/artworks an old and unique look.

(And I know that my preview always look quite horrible, but trust me, the textures are pretty good. ;D )
I hope you like them and please leave a comment, if you take them, 'cause feedback is
.

announcement

Hello everyone,

this is going to be just a quick announcement, which outlines a decision that we made recently. From now on all fanmix-entries will get locked and made members-only after two weeks after we posted them. We are doing this simply because of the fact that we don't want to have any troubles in the new future. We hope you understand and don't turn away because of that. Of course all other entries will remain public for everyone. Just the music posts will get locked after a short time of reaming see-able for everyone, due to safety reasons.

Thanks for all your support and comments.
Keep them coming. =)

♥ ♥ ♥

you can drive my car - fanmix!

Hey folks, a new fanmix from me. :D

So while I watched "The Real Merlin and Arthur" once more some days ago, I thought 'Why not make a fanmix to this?' and as you can see, I did. It took me however many hours to search for all the songs, to make the covers and to put everything together, but it was definitely fun. The mix is pretty Indie, but there are some songs, like "Life is a Highway" or "Radar Love" that loosen everything a bit. Altogether the songs are pretty happy and chipper, so exactly what you need for a long car drive. Also I create a tiny little picspam that accompanies the mix. I hope you enjoy this entry and if so, please leave a comment. I'm really curious what you think about it. :D

A clock is ticking, but it's hidden far away

Hey guys, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. :)
So, because I'm still on holiday and I have lots of free hours at hand, I managed to create a new textures set for you. This time it contains 30 large scans of spice and medical plants. I thought some flowers once again would be nice and these drawings that I found look beautiful and really handy. From arnica to wormwood, you will find most of the common medical and spice plants in this set. These textures are wonderful to give your art/graphics a special and unique look. I hope you like them and please don't forget to credit me or the community. Because lately I've seen many guys here on LJ, that clearly used my stuff, without giving me credit in their resources posts. I mean, it always takes me quite a lot time to create/scan these textures, so the least you can do is crediting me, don't you think so? Well, but however, enjoy the textures. I hope they'll be useful for you. :D Oh and I know that the preview doesn't look really great, but I was never good at creating them, so yeah whatever. ;)

the burning in my blood

First of all I wanted to thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last entry. The amount of them really blew me away. You are great and I know that I haven't replied on all of them, but I'll do it in the next few days.

However, this entry won't contain any new textures, but don't worry new ones will come soon.
This time I'm posting a brand-new fanvideo of mine. As you may know or perhaps not, I really enjoy to edit and to make videos. I never showed you any of them here, but I thought I could do it for once and ask you, if you would be interested in seeing more of them here in the near future. Please watch the video (it's even in HD available), leave a comment and fill out the poll. That would be really great.

February Paper textures

Almost one month without a single entry here.
We are deeply sorry for that, guys, but we all were pretty busy over the last few weeks.
Real life is sometimes really stressful. Luckily I have three weeks holiday now and I hope I'll be able to make some pretty textures and perhaps also some icons/wallpapers for you. Just stay tuned.

So for a start I have some new paper textures for you.
The set contains two old world maps, vintage handwritten paper textures, an anatomic drawing of a human heart and some nautical drawings as well. I'm sure that these textures will give your artworks a very unique and special look. Download and enjoy the goodies. Oh and please leave a comment, if you take then.
That would be really lovely. :D

Maps of the United Kingdom

Long time passed, since I last posted textures here and I'm sorry for that.
But real life is keeping me pretty busy right now, though I still managed to scan some old maps, which I found some days ago. I decided to scan just the ones of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, 'cause lately I found myself searching for these kind of textures. Why, you may ask? Well, the main reason for it is that I'm really addicted to the Tv-show Merlin at the moment and I tried to make some fanart, but never really found textures that fit to the medieval theme of the show. Luckily I found these pretty maps. I thought, why not share them with you. Perhaps you are also interested in these kind of stuff. If so and if you download this set, please don't forget to comment. ♥

Oh and before I forget, could you please fill out this tiny poll down here? I really would like to know, if you like these map textures and if you would like to see more of them in the near future. So please fill it out. It only takes some seconds. Oh and if you chose possibility 2, could you please explain in a comment, what you would like to see then from me?
