artwork from Yellena James <----be sure to check out her entire portfolio! It's amazing!
If you have never seen the incredibly unique artwork from Yellena James, then you are in for a real treat! This particular piece, entitled "Reef", is one of my personal favorites! I love the colors, the movement, the layering, the softness. Pull out a favorite floral set and use this beautiful painting as inspiration for your very own masterpiece. Layer your floral images over a sponged or stenciled background. Add details with a white gel pen, stamped in white ink or heat embossed in white. Pull out just a few of the colors or use them all. Let the painting lead you in an all new direction and have fun with the process!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Karen H designed this ocean themed card using many of the same colors from the inspiration photo. I love the watercolor touches and the softness this gives her project.
Terri E created this amazing "hugs" card with many similarities to the original painting. The way she used florals in place of things found under the sea was perfect and right on point.
Tonya Jastad made this stunning card with a similar design and flow to the inspiration piece. It is a great interpretation and overall fabulous card design.
Congratulations to all of the winners! Please be sure to email customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thanks to everyone for playing along!
