Tropical Scenic Backgrounds and Fillers

honeycombbg1200Bugs and Creepy Crawlers

Bugs are everywhere, even on the internet in one form or the other.   Now you can put bugs right on your desktop, and you won't have to swat or spray.

Bees, butterflies, spiders, ants, dragonflies and ladybugs all occupy space in folk art. Bees are common motifs on Pysanky Easter eggs and ornaments.

Bees were domesticated by early humans for honey production. Both bees and honey are also valuable for use in folk medicine to treat illnesses such as arthritis.

Some cultures thought spiders to be lucky omens, weather forecasters, and helpful aids in folk medicine.

 

Scenic backgrounds might come in handy, not only for interesting wallpaper for the pc or laptop, but as backgrounds in photo frames or playful dioramas.

Cut the pre-colored images into strips to weave kinte style table mats pieces. Divide the images into uneven squares and reassemble to create a mosaic or fun impromptu puzzles.

Laminate to create colorful coasters for glasses and mugs.

Fold into decorative paper snowflakes - who says snowflakes have to be white? These scenic gems not only make great backgrounds but are fun to paint or color too.

The scenic images are a bit like paint by numbers sheets but without those messy numbers. Paint by number kits are fun for a while but blank canvas is always preferable for the creative process to truly grow. Most of these theme backgrounds have a coloring book version located somewhere in Scissorcraft websites.

Print or save the background images and use to display photographs or desktop wallpaper.
