Making the hydrangea bushes was like solving a jigsaw puzzle. It took numerous tries to get the bushes the way I wanted them. I would arrange the leaves and flowers one way and then I would take it apart and start all over again. Finally, I began to think of each flower and leaf arrangement as a single plant and worked with that thought in mind as I built each bush.
I think I will need to add more highlights to the leaves.
