08/01 Texturessss

Well, hello! I'm still here and I actually made something (not that recently though). So here are 12 abstract textures (eight fractal/space and four misc.) I still have more to add, but I'm going to do that later. Yes, you guessed it, more firework stock (yay).

15/10 New layout!

I haven't updated this page in aaaaages (OK 2 months, let's not overreact), so I thought it might be time for a new layout. I know, that's all I ever do, but I had this idea and I wanted to see whether I could make it or not. So I made this... It has very fancy navigation.

00/00 Bananas

This is going to be a fancy update one day. When I update that is (and we all know I barely do!). I should say that I really like the word banana, it's even better in English than it is in Dutch. Of course it's great in Dutch too (BANAAN!). But that's common knowledge right?
You are completely free to decide what you want to use my resources for and how much you'd like to edit them. However, I have three rules I want you to follow. When you continue on to the content, I expect you to have read them and you automatically agree with them. No excuses. Breaking them might result in getting reported and most definitely in bad karma.

1. You have to give credit if you use my resources anywhere on a petpage or off-site. Credit like this: "Resource(s) used" from Details. Please name all the resources you've used on the page, not just a few. If you decide to use my resources off-site, you may also link back to my dA (xnienke). I'd actually prefer this over linking back to this page. (Unless you don't know what I'm talking about right know, then just link back to Details!)

2. Do not redistribute my resources and do not use them to make your own resources. So don't use my textures, stock images or brushes to make other textures or things like that. What I've also seen a lot, don't offer cropped versions of my textures as banner bases.

3. My bases are not meant for premade or request graphics sites. When you own this kind of site, it means you have to be able to make things yourself. Using other people their premade work is considered not done.

Drag the image to the address bar to see a larger version of it. If you want to use a texture or stock image, you can simply copy/paste the image.

Light textures. The ones with a dark background: Set the layer to lighten or screen. The lighter ones: I usually set the layer to soft light, but try to experiment!
Misc. textures. Since they're all so different, just try all blend modes. This is what I always do, never just stick to overlay or somthing like that. For the scratch texture you can best set the layer to Color dodge (black background) or Color burn (white background).
Stock images. The paper stocks work great for backgrounds, while the firework stocks can be used for light effects (set the layer to screen or lighten).

It doesn't matter what program you use, but you have to save the images to your computer first. This because the backgrounds of the sheets are transparant and will show up all black when you try to copy and paste.

Photoshop. Open the sheet in Photoshop. Then select the lasso tool (L) (you can use any selecting tool, but I like this one best!). Use the lasso tool to make a selection of the brush and then go to Edit » Define Brush...
Other programs. Try looking up some tutorials using your favorite search engine. I only use Photoshop and I don't know how other programs work.

To view the full png, drag the image to your adress bar. Also, keep in mind that the pngs are divided over two pages (to decrease the loading time), there are a lot of them!

In order to use them, you have to save these to your computer first. If you decide to copy and paste, the background will turn black instead of transparant (and then what would be the point of using PNG's right?). Open the file in your graphics program to work with it.

Backgrounds. You could decide to use them as they are now, in that case you only have to copy the url and paste it into this code: body {background:url("URL")} (this has to be pasted between style tags)
You could also decide to edit the background and in that case you can copy the image (you'll have to go to the url first) and edit it in your program. This is actually what I made them for. I could give you 10 colors of each background, but when people do that, the background rarely matches the layout it is used for. Recoloring isn't a hard thing to do really!
Blank bases Save them to your computer or copy them and edit them in your graphic program. You can put your site name on them or even make them into a layout.
Web resources These are good to use as they are!
