This template is the reason I absolutely love Filter Forge. It's not the textures (and it makes wonderful textures), but the objects it and...chains. The daisy came from a "Sunflower" filter that I tweaked to make a plethora of other floral species, and a chain filter that I also tweaked.

Some of the users of Filter Forge create their own filters...and if your filters become popular, it will get you a free version of the software. I don't have an interest in creating filters, but in using the ones already created and manipulating them to the fullest to get some wonderful effects.

While I was making this template, I was reminded of a dress I used to have about 15 years ago with white daisies against a black background. Those were the days.
Here's a neutral grey one using my legacy "Environment" graphics.

This one has so many parts to the construction. The decorative "snowflake gear" header area uses a top header that I made previously (still available for sale on the older part of my Ann-S-Thesia site). That top header uses various fonts I created that I sell at The Dingbatcave. I also created a  gear and a snowflake (the  foreground portion in the top header, and the background object on the left side of the page on top) with Filter Forge...there's filters that create such things. I had a lot of fun with this one!
Ever have something remind you of something but you can't place what it reminds you of? That's what these graphics do to me. They remind me of something from my past, but I don't know what. I have garnet jewelry, but it's not that. I have a bracelet of semi-precious stone scarabs in a goldtone setting that they sort of remins me of that I got from The Museum Shop over a decade ago, but I made these graphics longer ago than that (this is a re-adapted "Environment"). It is a puzzle.

Luscious puffy clouds of ruby colors, gorgeous glowing gems.
Graphics from my Environments adapted to the new Blogger format. I love the way I was able to make gems back then. Unfortunately, the software I used was never updated to be used on an Intel Mac.

This is one of the first templates I made in this new decade after I decided to start making templates again. It has sort of an ancient Greek feel to it. The round decoration in the header is made with one of my dingbat font families, "Timepieces" from The Dingbatcave.
