Blue Hydrangea Pattern

Earlier today I posted some of my customizable cases, and some of them featured my blue hydrangea pattern. Since I am creating patterns like crazy lately, I am going to tell you about this design before it is left in the dust!

As you may know, I have been on a flower creation spree. I find that creating flowers digitally in illustrator is really helping me learn the program better, so much that illustrator has replaced photoshop as my digital art tool. I plan on designing products for each birth month's flower. I started with Carnations, January's birth flower, and in February I will design violets.

For this hydrangea pattern in particular, i went a little different than what they usually look like. I maintained the lovely gradient of colour that these flowers usually have, but I changed the display of them from the bunch, to just single separate flowers for design purposes. It makes them less recognizable as hydrangeas, but works better as a designed pattern. I also have the option of turning these into bunches of hydrangeas in the future, which I will do. :)

If anyone else wants to feel the satisfaction of creating beautiful flowers in adobe illustrator, here is a tutorial that demonstrates steps to creating beautiful flowers.

Back to my pattern, here it is! These tiny hydrangeas are coloured in light violet and blues. Its a very sophisticated and feminine pattern, and looks great on most of the zazzle products.
