Plush Page Frames: Art Nouveau Nature Motif Four Ways

Today we're featuring our first set of page frames in quite a while. This time, we began with a public domain item found online, then converted it four ways for you.
And aren't they lovely? I have to tell you I nearly swooned when we first found it could be converted into new colorways which look fresh enough. As not everything will convert, this was a pleasing trial and error process which yielded the four tones you see below. I'm especially fond of nature themes, having grown up near woods and wilderness, so this one really plays my heart strings.
We hope our friends online will find plenty of uses for these lovely, old style art nouveau frames.
enjoy your weekend with your--
Happy Creativity!

Oh! Love me some Art Nouveau! I'm taking the one in hunter green as it matches the room.The fungi give an especially nice touch, a little gloomy, a little fae...

What is the running animal at the top? (hoping it's a bunny)

Rhissanna:Here's hop(p)ing it is a bunny! To be honest, I've got an idea it could represent most land mammals. But you know the nouveau artists--they chose to articulate things differently.
Maybe that's because they were differently oriented.
Or into taking absinthe a bit too often!
Cheers!

Ooh! Fabulous!! It's probably a hare, they appear a lot in the mythical stories the art noveauists liked to work from :D Thank you XXX

Gina: Thanks!
Our Jack hare it is, then!

Danice: Thanks! Art Nouveau is all about beauty, something more and more people seem interested in emulating and/or using in their artwork.
Love those new backgrounds you posted! Way cool!
