My sister has an iPhone and she loves to post pictures on Tumblr. I thought that I should do a wallpaper for her, since it's something that I could add to her phone and make it so much more interesting. I also thought that I could add a bunch of my other favorite icons into it. It turned out that it was pretty easy to do, but it also took a lot of time. It ended up taking me about 2 hours to complete, but I'm pretty proud of what I accomplished.
So how did I get started? I went to tumblr and searched for pictures of animals. The first few results that I got were of cute dogs and cats, but they didn't really have any wallpaper that I like. That's when I saw tumblr had a wallpapers section. I knew right then and there that I had to make some wallpaper for her. With that in mind, I searched for the word wallpaper and noticed that there were already a lot of different images that I could choose from.
As it turns out, tumblr has several different kinds of backgrounds for their users. I immediately decided that I would like a Google Earth wallpaper, because I happen to live near one. I picked one of the highest quality pictures that I could find. I downloaded it, set it as my wallpaper, and began to play with it.
It was way easier than I thought it would be. There were only two different options for selecting the background: a picture or a tile. Each had their pros and cons. The tile gave the wallpaper a very professional look. Plus, I could change the tiles whenever I wanted.
I went with a picture, but it wasn't the most amazing picture I've ever seen. I suppose it was because I live in Alaska and haven't been there that long. Whatever the case, my sister was happy with the wallpaper. It actually looks quite nice. When we went to a friends house the wallpaper was still there, and we were all excited to see what was on it.
After browsing through several tumblr wallpapers, I eventually settled on this one. It's a very subtle wallpaper but still impressive in my opinion. It's got a cute little bear design, and it really brings some life to the otherwise bland background.
So now, whenever I am bored or have a few minutes free, I look over at my tumblr account. I am surprised every time that I see a new wallpaper that I didn't already have on my computer. I am constantly in awe at the creativity of people who are able to come up with these kinds of things. I would never have thought it possible for someone to find a wallpaper for tumblr that I would be so impressed with. It's crazy to think that something like this could exist, but tumblr just proves that people really can do some amazing things.
My favorite thing is when someone adds a new background that I hadn't seen anywhere else. It is so neat to look through all the backgrounds that other people have uploaded. It's a lot of fun, especially because there are so many to choose from. I usually like to go with the ones that have a yellow base or something similar. Usually they are bright and vibrant, making them perfect for use in a bedroom or other soft cozy area of a house.
