October 2016 desktop wallpapers

Today’s the last Thursday in September, so it’s time for your free October 2016 desktop wallpapers!

Freebie: Mini Ink Splatter Textures

In many of the ventures I’ve taken into the depths of Instagram eye candy-land, adding some splatter to finished artwork is totally a thing. Here’s another thing though – splattering those babies is messy. Those little splatter dots actually go everywhere – I still have…
