Accents, Elements, and Borders

As standalone images, you can create your own virtual bouquets. These images are PNG files, with transparent backgrounds and tight clipping. That means all you see is flowers – no background to deal with or remove yourself.

Just drag and drop the images onto your canvas, in any layout or design app, and stack and arrange them however you want. For example, you can turn them around, flip them, or change the orientation for an easy, colorful wreath.

You can also use them sparingly, as accents. This will allow you to spruce up an image without overtaking it. You can use the flowers to get a bold, but subtle look at the same time.

Typography Accents

Apart from using them on an image, use the flowers to create an interplay with your typography. Use masking and layers to add further depth to a flat headline.

Drop shadows, hard or soft, can be used to change the perspective of a typography-centric design without resorting to supporting images – which saves you from having to work out whether the image supports the text or if it overtakes it. Make the letters and flowers intertwine for interesting looks.

Use the flowers as drop-cap accents. You can even create lettering with a bunch of little flowers lined up to make words.

Free Flower Images as Patterns

Arrange the flowers in a repeating motif to create your own patterns. Go crazy mixing them up, alternating them, changing the order, or use the same one over and over. Technically speaking, you can use them to create hundreds of thousands of image combinations.

Floral Masks

Drop these blossoms into an image with ultimate control by using masks. Draw off parts of an image to create organic borders, or containers, to add more of a patterned look. Use the component shapes and subjects of a host image to transform an image naturally, but in unexpected ways.

Whether you’re completely saturating the mask area with flowers, or arranging the flowers in a geometric way to mimic a printed pattern, the areas you mask will be a great host for these so long as you follow their contours.

Or, get crazy and use your own shapes overlaid on an image. You can also create an entire image strictly of masks, containing your unique patterns and arrangements of the flower images. Go nuts, they’re literally yours to enjoy.

Blend Modes

Aside from arrangements and settings, Blend Modes in Photoshop will give you more control over the depth, color, transparency, opacity, and saturation of the flowers either in groups or individually.
