The Restless Winter Wind by somesoul The Restless Winter Wind by somesoul
I tried to use the gradient tool a lot more this time - I always forget how handy it can be! It certainly gives a softer feel to the shapes and is a neat 'short-cut' to get around using layers upon layers to get a similar effect!

:wow: May I have permission to use this beautiful picture for a blog skin (possibly modified in taste for skin design) on our journals at :iconthe-devils-gate:?

Of course you will be recognized/credited in the journal's footer if you say yes. I'm hoping! :heart:

ah so they're called sakuras.. Kinda just thought five-pointed pink petals would look good - guess it was my take on what cherry blossoms look like?? Thanks for liking!!
