My first wall here at MT3 ^_^ Hello everyone! *waves*

I adore the time era of the Victorian/Gilded age in our history and I was moved when I saw this scan. So I wanted to incorporate it with a background of that time. "Gilded" was a term given by Mark Twain about the time period when many great fortunes were created and the way of life the wealth supported. My favorite place is that of Newport, Rhode Island which houses many famous Gilded mansions of the wealthy (and filmed great movies like the "Great Gatsby").
"The Marble House" is one of those mansions and which I chose my wall to be based on and so I like to give credit to the Preservation Society of Newport County. As for the scan, I found here at MT.

As for the wall, I have made it a while ago, but decided to finally submit it in. I had to fix the scan a bit to fit the wall. And I gave the entire wall a brownish/gold hue with some texture (graininess) to offer an antique-feel to the atmosphere.

So please enjoy! !
And thank you so much for your comments, tips, and any favs ^^

    Oh. Em. Gee.

    This is soooo pretty! The sparkes...and the way the scan just blends right in with the stock of the house, it looks like she belongs there. Really wonderful work! A fave for sure!

    Ahhhh nice wallpaper Emma :)
    The stock fits so well with the background, it looks like she actually came with the background - really nice job on working the scan with the background.
    It has a dreamy effect of it - splendid work Emma!

    Keep it up!

    OO every extravagant indeed. I've actually been to a couple of those places. This sure brings back some memories.

    i really luv the rich feel of your wallie...it exudes extravagance and overindulgence! i truly get that feeling of excess from your wallie through your choice of background and the girl's facial expression, which has an air of satisfaction. i luv the overall golden colors on your wall and the texture you used because i feel like i'm looking into the past. the mist on the bottom of your wall is also a nice touch because it gives it a very dreamy, reminiscent-type atmosphere.
    your composition is wonderful because everything blends in and fits together rather beautifully!

    Wow this looks stunning :) the scan is very nice and you've created a great background. The place looks beautiful and the texture is awesome. I think its just soo wonderful to give it the antiquish look because then it gives the feel that it was our past. The glowing lights make it seem like its beauty is everlasting. Great work!

  15. yoshball Nov 07, 2005

    This is an excellently done wallpaper. While it was easy to tell where the scan ended and the "painted" background, I thought it was done well enough that looking at it sweepingly that it work well. Good monochromatic theme. Great job!

  16. phamthuha Nov 07, 2005
