1880 Patterns – Seamless Tiles And Textured Papers

Since I figured out how to create seamless tiles, I’m constantly on the lookout for vintage stuff that can be “patternized” 😀

I have quite a few great patterns brewing in my magic kettle… but here is a set I have worked on from The Graphics Fairy Scraps (formerly known as the Background Fairy). She has these offered already as overlays, but I have cleaned them up and made seamless tiles, enabling resizing of all sorts, and a more versatile use.

These tiles have another thing in common, they are PNG-files, meaning the backgrounds are transparent. If you have a pretty textured paper, printing these on top, will allow the paper to show through. Or you can layer them in countless ways if you are using software like photoshop.

I also made a sample pink paper with each of these, again featuring the damask-texture I simply can’t live without…:

I’d love to hear which pattern is your favorite! And keep looking back for more patterns, seamless tiles and free printable papers 🙂

The files are free for your personal use and enjoyment 🙂

I used the following elements for these designs:

  1. Hi Gunnvor Karita

    I’m back in sunny Hertfordshire. Yes the sun is actually shining. I see you found my little blog, thank you for the ‘like’ and lovely comment. I set it up because most challenges now require blog links instead of email submissions. I don’t often get to complete my projects in time but I enjoy the challenge.

    I was so amazed that I won joint second in the SNG challenge, I did think my scootering skeleton was in with a chance but he wasn’t creepy looking, which is what they like to see on that blog.

    I haven’t forgotten my promise but this week is going to be hectic, but in the mean time, this file would not download directly but did open with google docs option and I downloaded it from there.

    I love the tiles and paper. Thank you.

    LOL Stephanie

    1. Hiya Hunny 🙂
      I wondered if your blog was new… 😛 You have true talent for blogging, I enjoyed your description almost as much as I did the image! I sincerely hope you will continue to upload samples of your work, regardless if they are entered into contests or not 🙂 Your skeleton was the best, no wonder you won 😀

      Thanks a lot for noticing my tiles, I have vintage french silk today too, two posts in the same day, that never happened before…lol (not counting a couple of previous posts with the same dates, since they were posted almost 24 hours apart…)

      I just realized I have been working on multiple projects lately, and took the time to complete several this afternoon 😛

      Love & Light
      Gunnvor Karita
