Pretty Phone Wallpapers and Backgrounds #8

One of my favourite things to pin on Pinterest are phone wallpapers and backgrounds. I like to change my phone’s background at least once a week which I know may seem excessive to a lot of people, but I tend to change my wallpaper to suit my mood. I typically like quite feminine phone wallpapers but I love a good quote, and my quote board on Pinterest is one of my most popular boards – everyone else loves a good quote too, it would appear.

I always have my Quote Pinterest board, and my Phone Wallpapers board pinned within my ‘featured’ boards widget on my Pinterest profile so they’re always easy to find should you want to take a look.

As well as pinning free phone wallpapers, I love to make them too with graphics and fonts I’ve purchased from Etsy and Creative Market so I thought I’d share a selection of them here on my blog occasionally incase you fancy saving them, and using them on your phone.

A small selection of these wallpapers are edits of royalty free images. Keep on reading if you’d like to download some free phone wallpapers and backgrounds.

I’ve featured a few different posts containing free phone wallpapers on my blog;

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

Trust the overthinker that tells you that they love you. They have, most assuredly thought of every reason not to.

Direction is so much more important than speed. Some are going nowhere, fast.

Sometimes the people you wanted part of your story are only meant to be a chapter.


I would like to give thanks to the following very kind Etsy sellers I purchased graphics from, for giving me permission to create wallpapers with their graphics that I purchased.

I really recommend them should you be looking for beautiful vectors, backgrounds, papers or graphics too; NorthSeaStudio, BeracaInk, ChloeSweeneyDesign The Pinsta Lab Fantasy Cliparts Digital Curio Pixel Jungle IHelpUrArt TheDigiRainbow  and Lille Studio.

I really hope you like them and I’ll be sure to add new ones as and when I make them..
