I want to say right off that the name “Blue Moon” is not the name of this particular hydrangea flower, so don’t run off trying to find the blue moon variety. It’s a name I gave the design line in my BlueHyd shop that uses this image.
With a store full of hydrangeas, I had to come up with creative names for my flowers to differentiate as they could not all simply be called blue hydrangeas. With a wedding line of blue flowers that are all unique, this big, round blossom reminded me of the moon, and hence the name.
The dark blue hydrangea is a big time favorite, but this one is also a popular choice for the brides who are planning a summer or hydrangea themed wedding. Light blue is always a nice color – so very calming and pretty – and it looks great on any of our specialty papers.
Because of it’s round shape, the Blue Moon flower looks great on everything, and I’m glad I snapped this photo a few years ago to keep this pretty flower preserved forever on paper. All I did was remove the background and that gave me lots more options for designing.
If you want to see how I do that, then read my page: Create a Transparent Background – I use a free program called Paint.net.
