I should make you guess where each name is from... ;) But I'll be nice and tell you with every one. :D I was planning on releasing these next week... but then I heard that one of my friends was going to be using an "I Love it!" background with her upcoming blog makeover. Knowing her to be a fellow Jane Austen Fan, I let her know about the coming backgrounds, and she said that she would definitely be waiting on them.
So I designed ALL of these yesterday, and am sharing them today! *awesomeness* :D
Credit: The free backgrounds in this series were almost solely made using elements from Friendly Scrap, and a ribbon from Summertime Designs and another ribbon I found in a freebie kit from Wishing Well Creations.
For the sake of saving space, I have not posted previews of the three column versions of every background... (although I do try to do that when the three column version looks different.) ...the code is just underneath the 'standard' width code for each design. (They usually look very much like the standard width except that the white middle section is just a little wider.)
|A Grateful Heart|
A Grateful Heart, 3 Column
^ This background is named after Fanny Price in Mansfield Park, who had a very grateful heart.
From Pride & Prejudice... the lovely Miss Georgiana Darcy, the hero's younger sister.
Georgiana, 3 Column
From Sense & Sensibility, obviously. :D Lol!
Sunflower Sensibilities, 3 Column
|Something Infinitely More Dear|
From.... Emma! Mr. Knightley told her that he did not want to call her his friend because he wanted to call her "Something infinitely more dear." - awwwww. :D
Something Infinitely More Dear, 3 Column
|Lodgings in Bath|
This is also from Northanger Abbey, when Catherine goes to stay in Bath (before going on to Northanger Abbey) - but it would fit with several other Jane Austen stories that also include scenes in Bath.
Lodgings in Bath, 3 Column
|Sotherton, 3 Column|
I included a preview of the 3 Column version of this one because it's a bit different than the original... the lacy ribbon borders are darker.
|Good Health and Bloom with Chandelier|
And, you know, 'cause I have this thing for chandeliers, I had to make a version with one. ;)
(sorry, no 3 Column version)
|"Oh, a Cottage! How Very Snug."|
This title is based off a remark that Fanny Dashwood makes in Sense and Sensibility. She's the evil sister-in-law that you love to hate in the story.
"Oh, a Cottage! How Very Snug."- 3 Column
Seriously, which one is your favorite?
