Well hello, everyone! It’s been a week since my last blog post — I took the long weekend off from blogging to enjoy some quality rest and relaxation — and it was absolutely fantastic! I headed to the mountains on Saturday for a peaceful drive, a much needed massage at my favourite spa and an incredible meal. I also slept in, caught up on some housework, read a book and generally just enjoyed a slow, semi unplugged weekend without my camera (yep, still working on that balance thing we talked about!) How did you spend your long weekend?
This week I’m back at it — feeling refreshed, renewed and so excited to bring you another collaborative post in our ALL ABOUT series where Rebecca Dawn Design and I team up to educate you about everything you’ve ever wanted to know to know about a certain flower! In honour of love month, it’s been All About Roses here at JustineCelina and today we’re reintroducing you to February’s quintessential bloom, the rose. Learn about common and unique varieties, what to look for when purchasing roses, as well as how to care for and condition them so you can enjoy them for up to 14 days. Rebecca also shares her secret weapon for reviving droopy roses — you’re not going to want to miss it! There’s so much pretty in store for you today (did you know flowers are one of my favourite things to photograph?) as we take a closer look at Vendela, Quick Sand, Mother of Pearl, Cappuccino, Precious Moments and Roseberry rose varieties.

Happy April 1st and welcome back for my April Digital Blooms Roundup, flower friends! This mega post features 11 free, downloadable spring-inspired floral tech wallpapers for your computer, tablet and phone — no joke! It also marks DIGITAL BLOOMS 5th Anniversary, with the very first set of free floral tech wallpapers we created dating back to April 2016. Isn’t that wild?! Over the years this series has undergone many changes as I worked with various florists and local vendors to preserve seasonal blooms digitally in an effort to enjoy their fleeting beauty on the background of our devices, year round. 5 years ago I could have never predicted the success of this series — which has now eclipsed one million downloads! To thank you for your support, I’ve rounded up all of my April free floral tech wallpapers for you to download in one convenient location.
Spring is one of my favourite seasons for flowers — including Ranunculus, Tulips, Anemones, Hyacinths and Daffodils — all of which you’ll find at play in April’s free floral tech wallpapers! In fact, some of my all time favourite DIGITAL BLOOMS were created in April. If you love gorgeous seasonal blooms set in a quintessentially spring palette of pastels, rich purples and candy coloured brights (have you seen the Pantone Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Color Trend Report?!) I think you’ll love them, too!

Flower friends, welcome back for the first post of 2021! Today marks the end of an era here at JustineCelina, as it’s the first month since DIGITAL BLOOMS‘ inception back in April 2016 that I’m not providing a new free floral wallpaper for download (yes, you read that correctly!). I spent much of 2020 letting go of things that no longer served me and making space for what’s next so I could live and work in greater alignment. This facilitated a lot of strategizing around how I could continue to grow my blog and business in 2021. Longtime readers will know I’ve mentioned I would love to extend my DIGITAL BLOOMS into a series of calendar-based digital and print products (this is something many of you have requested as well!), however, given the volume of content I previously produced each month and the resources required, it simply wasn’t possible. So, it’s time for a change! I’m pleased to announce that I’m dedicated the first few months of 2021 to carving out what’s next for JustineCelina Digital Blooms and am feeling very inspired to refocus and finally tackle the e-commerce component of my brand!
But, not to worry! My extensive archive of tech wallpapers will remain available for free download here at JustineCelina, regardless of the additional products I develop. While I work away on what’s next, each month this year I’ll publish a roundup of free floral tech wallpapers for easy browsing. Even if you’re a die hard DIGITAL BLOOMS fan, surely you haven’t downloaded each of the 8 free January tech wallpapers I’ve produced over the years, have you?! Freshen up your tech for 2021 by choosing from my best free floral tech wallpapers featuring a stunning array of seasonal winter flowers and foliage, crisp colour palettes and inventive arrangements to enjoy on the background of your computer, tablet or phone. As always, I hope January’s Digital Blooms bring you joy and inspiration as we ease into a fresh new year. Thank you so much for your continued support as I shift my focus to expanding JustineCelina DIGITAL BLOOMS into digital and print based products this year! I could have never imagined how successful this series would become and can’t wait to continue explore all the new possibilities that lie ahead as I break ground on a longstanding business goal. Wishing you all a wonderful new year!
Flower friends, welcome back for an extra cheerful August Edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS! Shifting gears from July’s prairie-inspired Edition, this month I wanted to create something extra bright, joyful and uplifting inspired by summer’s blooming gardens. August 2020’s Digital Blooms feature a lovely array of some of very favourite flowers — including White Ranunculus, Yellow Butterfly Ranunculus (learn All About Ranunculus), Blush and White Tulips (learn All About Tulips) along with Quicksand and Yellow Spray Roses (learn All About Roses) arranged with whimsy. There’s something about the combination of blush pinks, yellow and cream that feels quintessentially summer to me — it’s a palette I also find myself enjoying in my wardrobe and home at this time of year!
August 2020’s Digital Blooms are heavily inspired by a few hues from PANTONE’s Spring / Summer 2020 Colour Trend Report — including Sunlight, Coral Pink and Brilliant White. Enjoy a daily dose of summer’s carefree energy on background of your computer, laptop, tablet or phone all month long by clicking through to download August 2020’s Free Floral Wallpaper! Wishing all my Canadian readers a rejuvenating, safe and joyous long weekend — I’m signing off to do some gardening and enjoy a glass of rosé in the sunshine! Cheers!
