Vintage Images I Used to Create My Blog Background

I love to find and play with vintage images.
And these are a few I used to create my blogger background page with.

A Lovely Example of a Victorian Paper Scrap Image
 I slightly altered the dress color to better match my blog background.

A Victorian Paper Scrap Fan
 I altered the color of this fan in Photoshop so it would match my background.

A Victorian Corset

A great metal Fleur-de-lis embellishment
It's fun to manipulate bits and pieces to create a new image.
I used the last three images posted her to create the vintage dress you see on the bottom right of my blog background.

My Finished Background
Once I added all my elements, altered some colors and corrected my sizing;
I had my first EKD created blog background.
(The sides on the background were created using a fractal image and I added a 
watermark type decoration to the top and bottom of the page for added interest)

I worked up several different color schemes of this page and put a 
different color scheme on my main blog.
As I learn more about Photoshop and creating digital art 
I'm sure this won't be my last background build.
