Lovely Gardenia Collection in my Zazzle shop is based on this photo. Last spring I added new bushes to my side yard which included two gardenias. What a wonderful surprise to have blooms the first season.
For the collection, I used Photoshop to make the photo somewhat transparent and gave it a more painterly look. I printed the photo and added pen/ink markings to accent the edges of the petals.
In working with the design, I found I liked both black and white backgrounds. So, I mixed it up a bit in the collection with black, white, and black and white polka dot backgrounds. I originally saw the design as dinnerware. Mix or match, the Lovely Gardenia design adds elegance and sophistication to any table.
