For designers, one of the ways to come up with beautiful, creative and realistic artworks is to use textures and patterns. They can be used in every design project to provide it with tactile feel and make it more interesting for the audience. For example, if you are working on a realistic 3D model of a bag, you will really need some leather textures. For icon designs and website backgrounds, a wood texture can be used to give it an intimate and homey feel that users would love to see.

For something related to merry and light-hearted themes, like a poster or flyer designs for a carnival fair, children’s party etc., you might find it necessary to use something sweet and colourful. In some cases the colour of the rainbow would be a good idea and to find some of these colourful resources, we are sharing with you a truckload of rainbow patterns, textures and backgrounds. All of these resources are free, but there are some that require credit or otherwise permission if you intend to use them for commercial purposes. Explore these awesome freebies and see if anything can be of use to you on your artistic efforts. Enjoy!

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
