Freebie Friday: Vibrant Wallpapers

Happy Friday everyone!

I know you’re counting down the hours until your weekend can begin so here’ s a little something to sweeten your day – some free desktop and iPhone wallpapers I made just for you!

YES I MADE THEM!

Scroll on down for some fun and vibrant matching desktop and iPhone wallpapers just in time for back-to-school and to bring a pop of color to your office cubicle. Plus I have some “Friday Food For Thought” on why I made these in the first place.

Along Came Katrina Vibrant Wallpapers

 

Some Food For Thought

 

Technically, I am not a designer.

To be really honest with you, I know only the basics of Photoshop which I used to create these babies right here. The few design skills I do know I learned on the job plus watching Youtube videos.

 

My mindset: Be fueled by the greatness of others.

After scrolling through my Instagram feed and discovering so many talented photographers, calligraphers and  designers, I really wanted to be able to craft something unique and fun that represents me.

Fueled by their talents, I always find myself asking “Am I capable of doing that too? Can I do it better?” The one thing I love to do is to make shit on my own and I am super proud that I was able to create these freebies to share with all of you. Especially the floral one considering it took me three FREAKIN’ hours to get it right.

Bottom Line

While I know where my talents lie, I am never afraid to try to learn something new.

And I implore you to do the same! What is one skill you have been meaning to learn? Get out there and learn it! You never know what you are capable of unless you’re willing to try.

*For the mobile wallpapers, be sure to select “move and scale” and select “still” on iPhone for the best display.
