Rhododendron September Calendar Page

Edited to add: My blog may look funny for a bit as I am trying to get the new Blogger Template Designer to work and I can't seem to see the preview.  So, I have to "apply" the changes and look and see what it will look like!!!!  Kinda like trying on clothes and they look good on the hanger, but not on you!! lol!!

Hi all! As promised here is the first of the Custom Quilling August Newsletter design team projects.  This is the last of the perpetual Quilled and Floral Punch calendar.  It has been so much fun to create these and I could keep on going with the wealth of designs!  September features rhododendron flowers in pink and purple.  These little puff balls are formed with a sakura flower punch and the small cosmos flower for the centers.  They are formed like the hydrangea blossoms on a rounded 1" circle punch.  The centers are shaded with a darker pink and purple before adding the stamens.  The leaves are made from the lily punch. 

I used the pink and purple card stock from the August Custom Quilling kit to make these striking blossoms but you could use the coffee filter/watercolor method also.  Now that the calendar is finished it is time to replace the months with the new year and enjoy them all over again! If you were inspired to create a calendar, link it in the comments section to share it!!  There are some other awesome supplies in the kit and I will be sharing the other projects made from them tomorrow and the day after.  A hint of the projects is: it is made from fabric and quilling, so check back to see.

If you are looking for the Fred She Said July Blog Hop, it is the post below this one.  Thanks for all the super sweet encouragement on the new DT FSS image projects!!! Good Luck!
