The next theme up was Something from a Book. It did take me a while to think of what to make,
but I don't think I have ever tried to make Winnie The Pooh.
It is a difficult shape to try and re-create.

I made the large design for the challenge of the day but then after wanted
to see if I could make a more real world line work design.
I have started a separate thread for that and how we tried quite a few
face and body designs till we ended up with something that
I was reasonably happy with.

Face on view of the shape of the geo's, the originally does have a nicer curved look.

The snail was from my Geo DVD that is possibly over 6 years ago.
It had either 3 side wall bubbles or a side wall bubble and two raisen twists.
It was that long ago I'm not 100% sure and I have not played the DVD to double check.

So the newer design has 2 raisens but could as easily be done with 2 side wall bubbles.

The purple and yellow snail, I did try the design with just attaching the knot
from the geo to the underside of the base but I did not like the look of
the geo edges not sitting close enough to the lower body.
In the picture with the angle etc it does not look to bad.

Hello Everyone
Did you know that Rob is doing a day of Facebook Live balloon twisting workshops
over on the Balloon Artistes Guild Facebook page?

They will be "FREE" for everyone to come and watch and maybe even twist along to.
The 3 sessions will take place tomorrow at 10am, 1pm and 3.30pm (UK time).

He will be teaching a selection of things including a Baby Yoda, a Lego Ninjago and
a few other things. If you join in with the Live sessions then he will try and answer
any questions as we go but the videos will be available for a while after too.

Rob has adapted the designs to use mostly 260s giving everyone a chance to join in,
there are just a couple of different shapes and sizes used in the last session.

If you want to watch them just join the Balloon Artistes Guild Facebook group,
there is a list of the balloons you will need in the group.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow :)

The whole family together. I might try the face again later today
to see if we can get a more Winnie The Pooh look.

So this is where we have ended up so far,
I tried a different nose configuration on the last picture.

The face on the smaller designs still needs a little tweaking.
