yo! it’s been five days since the start of #CanopyAdvent is in some ways this could be considered a week… so wow.
read on for today’s wallpaper!
hope everyone has been enjoying the wallpapers and making the days to christmas count! i’m sorry that there haven’t been any “normal” posts on my blog yet, it’s a little hard to make those happen while making wallpapers and managing #CanopyAdvent15, but hopefully something should be up this weekend! (although… i make no promises.)
alrighty. today’s wallpaper is today’s (or technically, tomorrow’s) download is sort of a design experiment turned wallpaper. i was playing around with the magic wand tool and some transparent backgrounds popped out! i layered it over another Unsplash photo… and poff. more surreal wallpaper magic. (see how obsessed i am with these things?)
i was also thinking that you guys should play around with some layered transparency things… show me if you do! maybe it even can be part of #CanopyAdvent15. (use Preview, by the way! the magic wand tool works real good.)
if you just joined, you might be wondering what #CanopyAdvent15 is… so here’s a quick rundown!
#CanopyAdvent15 is my blog’s version of an advent calendar, with little surprises to brighten up your days until Christmas, and this year those surprises are wallpapers.

everyday i’ll be posting the wallpapers as individual posts, along with a short write-up on what inspired them and the artist who created them (if it’s not me).

you can access the official #CanopyAdvent15 page via the link in this post or by holding your mouse over the Wallpapers link to open a dropdown menu in my blog’s header. i’ll be curating the links to each daily wallpaper post on that page, as well as links to posts with details about this project.
do note that because of timezones the wallpapers may not come out on the exact day where you are, and they may not go live at the same time every day. i’m working on it!
