April Blue Hydrangea Calendar Page

Hi all, back with the next installment of the Perpetual Quilled and Floral Punch Calendar, April.  This month's Custom Quilling kit had in it a beautiful soft blue card stock perfect for the hydrangeas that I have been waiting to put on one of the calendar pages.  The hydrangea petals were punched out of coffee filter paper and then watercolored with various shades of blue and green Twinkling H2O's.  They were then shaped and glued to a mounded circle of blue paper.  I love all the colors that the hydrangeas come in and tried to put several of the blue varieties on the page.  It is finished with shaped birch leaves and little pearlescent daisy accent flowers.  I have some planted in my garden and can't wait to see them bloom.  For years this has been my Mother's Day corsage picked by my girls!

Thanks to all who have voted in my poll on the sidebar, I'll leave it up for a little while longer so more will have a chance to vote on what they would like to see. I have a request for a tutorial on the quilled eccentric flowers used in the Spring Verse, so I will work on that one first.  If you would like to see any others please leave me a comment on which one(s)! Back later with the last CQ DT project.

Shalom,

Sonya

I wanted to know what is to be done to give the centre of the hydrangea that uplifted curve.

Wow, Sonya! This is a looker. I am seriously refraining from wallpapering my desktop with this beauty so I can look at it longer ;)
