Decorate Your Blog with Depositphotos

You may have noticed that I tweaked the design of my blog in the past few days--particularly the background and the header.  Being an artsy-craftsy kind of gal, I obsess over beautiful things, so naturally I want my blog to reflect who I am and be visually appealing.

I'm also one to illustrate my blog posts, frankly because I find posts with photos or illustrations much more interesting, especially that it naturally breaks up large chunks of text and enhances your writing topic.  Why not just put a bird on it?
Where does one go to find free stock imagesDepositphotos has all your needs covered.  Whether you're looking for decoration images, like for a blog background like I used or  photos of food to illustrate a post on cooking, or really any kind of clip-art illustration, Depositphotos provides everything you need, royalty-free.

You can even find many versions of the uber-popular (or is it already waning?) chevron pattern.  That could be a fun background for your blog.
You can get free stock images when you sign up for a free 7 day trial membership and download 5 images per day.  It's simple to use, and the files are easy to open and save.  They're yours forever too, unless disaster strikes your hard drive.

When I browse the site, I'm awestruck at the amount of images available.  I like a lot of the embellishment images, like this old-timey one:
So many possibilities with that vector set, like a party invitation or stationary.  And I love the variety of labels you can download too.  Perfect for creating a pretty and organized home or using in scrapbooking.
These scroll banners are also useful and popular too.
There are all kinds of photos to illustrate whatever topic you might be writing about.  Even poop, I looked.  I'll spare you the imagery though. 

Now go forth and make your blog and life more visually appealing!
