New free shabby textures

This is an interesting set: aged, little grunge, little faded, in white, beige and greenish colors. Can be used in many ways, but I had in mind a shabby chic project when I made it. I think I'll use it in my first scrapbook kit too, the 6 textures are the papers I need.

When I was looking for shabby chic textures on Internet for my furniture in Second Life I did not find many. I saw a lot of floral patterns, but once you apply them in Photoshop they look new and shiny.
Then I started to age them myself, learning this way to work with brushes and multiple layers. I used at least 10 layers for every single textures in this pack, but sometimes I needed more.
I would like to make my own vectors and patterns, but my CS2 has its limits. I have to buy the latest version and then... OMG ... what a joy! I'll be lost in Illustrator, playing like a child in a toys store.

Until then I hope you enjoy these "toys". Because the textures are very large, I had to upload them in Winrar archive, on Hotfile site. No need to have premium account to download them, just choose the slow mode, wait few seconds and Download. In few minutes is done. Download link:
