Free textures

October 23, 2011

I have recently purchased a copy of Filter Forge and am really enjoying it. Why I did not buy it before now, I just don’t know. It was probably some slight technical hitch like not having a lot of money to throw about.

Anyway I thought I would share a few wallpaper textures I made. I hope you enjoy them and find them useful.


These are freebies. You are free to use them in your builds and sell those builds. Please sell or don’t pass them on as textures. Pass folks the link to this blog instead.

For those that have Filter Forge the filter is called Wall Paper Creator and thanks to the filter designer CFandM. I know it’s not necessary but credit where credit is due, as lets face it I just tweaked.

Leave a comment as I will post more as I make them if people find them useful

If you click on the image you can go to a 512 x 512 size

In the meanwhile happy building at InWorldz!

The Where is it Quest

October 22, 2011

Out side the Museum at West Artistan Blue Dog and Lemon Head stand guard over the photos of the Where-It-Is quest competition.

All these sites in the competition are locations on the 2011 Halloween hunt. The idea is to match photos with place. Collect an entry form from the red box and after completing the list of where the photos were taken you submit it to the second box.

Cash Prizes of  2500, 1500 and 1000 izzies will be awarded for the first three people to submit the Where-It-Is Quest Entry Form accurately.

Where does the quest start?

When at InWorldz, into the search under the people tab, type Teal Etzel or Stefanik Dagostino and look in the profile picks for the hunt start. The Where is it Quest photos are outside the front of the museum (the hunt start is at the coffee shop on the roof).

When does the Quest start?
28th of October and it will run until the 9th November.Winners will be announced on the 10th of November.

How long does the hunt run?
The 2011 Halloween Grid Wide Treasure Hunt will run until 10 November. If you want updates on this event, help from fellow hunters and general fun, join The Hunt Club.

A Peek at More Halloween Hunt Gifts

October 12, 2011

I thought I would share some more gifts I found on the 2011 Halloween Grid Wide Treasure Hunt.

Teal Freenote always give nice gifts on a hunt. I mean this, she never gives out a prize that is not well made and the hunt is no different.


First I was delighted to unpack Upholstered Lounge but knew immediately that I would love these Sculpted Orchids that are in Red Bowl. See Teal Freenote’s profile for where she has shops InWorldz and check out her blog for information about Gallery Freenote

Jack the scarecrow is a gift from Piratelilly Topaz of Beck & Topaz 1. The Jack-o-lanterns has eyes that blink in a startling manner!

Gryphon Pavilion from E Edhel Amar is something you could build a whole Halloween scene around

This suitably spooky Bone Chandelier is a gift from MAAD (Museum of American Architecture and Design)


There are some very spooky locations too! This guy at the Port of the Forgotten pirates is having real trouble with his lifestyle!

Where does the hunt start?
When at InWorldz type Teal Etzel of Stefanik Dagostino into the InWorldz search under the people tab and look in out profile picks.
How long does it run?
The 2011 Halloween Grid Wide Treasure Hunt will run from 10 October until 10 November. If you want updates on this event, help from fellow hunters and general fun, join The Hunt Club.

The 2011 Halloween Grid Wide Treasure Hunt started tonight

October 10, 2011

The 2011 Halloween Grid Wide Treasure Hunt started tonight and there are some great prizes to be discovered as well as some spooky places to explore.
This is how the script library has decked themselves out!


The Faberge Egg from Mr & Mrs.H Special Occasions, I think will be one of my favourite souvenirs of the hunt as it is so well made.


The Halloween background texture is also a gift from the hunt from Cloee Heslop of the Spiders Den and the Black Feather Wings are from quadrapop tree.

Now do I look fierce or what!
Most hunts you get clothes to wear this one you can find a dinosaur to wear and ride! It flys too but you have to remember to turn of your AO  of some funny things happen. Thanks goes to Ruby Vandyke of Rodeo Horses and Animals
