Hi all, I thought i would try out a new game for us all to try out. Judging from the last balloon snap game, we saw that people are too busy to commit to a game/competition at any one given time. So i came up with a game that you can play anytime you want and people can maybe learn something from it aswell.

The game is Picture of the month, A picture of an object(non balloon related), will be posted and stay on this section for a month the aim is to recreate that object with balloons, every month there will be a new picture posted to have a go at!!

As i said this is a really laid back game, that you can do in your free time and also could improve your skills slightly :D :D

Okay so the first picture will have a Christmas theme as it's just around the corner.

Enjoy Twisters.

I had a go. Essentially they are the same but obviously I joined the two middle pinch twists on either side together on one of them

Hello Kenny

That is such a tough shape to get right, not sure of the best way to do it really, I tried the pinch twist method and I was not convinced so I tried this instead.
