Balloon Chit Chat / Re: Facebook Challenge

Day 7 of the challenge.
I nominate anyone who would like to join in.
I was nominated by Danielle Burnige
https://balloonchat.co.uk/picture-gallery/lamp/
I was rather chuffed when the Tiffany Lamp came together first time, this was the original prototype one that I made.
I just love the look and feel of the design. The other thing that made this nice was that when I was making the
other lamps, and yes I did make a few I got a nice friendly ribbing from a few where the phrase 50 shades
of grey was mentioned in various formats 😁😁 makes me smile thinking about it. Sometimes its the
stories and memories behind the design that makes it special for you. This one is special for me 💕
The link above is how the Tiffany Lamp came about with some variations on the lamp as well.

With and without the cracked look.

https://balloonchat.co.uk/picture-gallery/tennis-racket
The Tennis racket I made back in 2015 and yes I have a soft spot for this one, always have....not sure why.
Its still the only time I have made it and would I make differently next time? I have no idea till I start
making it again 😉😁 How the racket evolved to the finished design can be seen on Balloon Chat,
the link over two pages is above.

It was May 2013 that I originally made the Dog, I thought it would have been a lot longer ago than that.
See the mind plays tricks with us................well with me it does  ;D ;D

Balloon Chit Chat / Dog Re-Visited

I made the dog .....possibly 10/12 years ago now. It was when Rosaleen was over from the USA I do remember that.
I have messaged to see what year it was. I always liked the look of the Dog and have tried to make it a couple
of times since but it did not work out. Even this one is a variation and not the same.

Day 5 of the challenge.
I nominate anyone who would like to join in.
I was nominated by Danielle Burnige.
This was a photoshoot for Vogue Russia. Taken many years back now in 2007,
It was pretty unusual as it was in a very small flat above a shop that they turned into
a photographic studio for the day. There were many big burly security guards about
which we thought was odd until they told us that the jewellery was very expensive.
One of the rings that we ended up putting inside a 260 dog was valued at over a
million pounds so goodness knows what the total price would have been for everything.
I really liked the end result as there was not to much editing and photo shopping as
with some other shoots I have been on. I will put the tutorials for the designs
shown in the comments below. The picture I have from the shoot is quite
small so the quality might be a little poor?
PS, I have added better pictures in the thread below.

I have been going over some of my older designs as I was nominated for this Facebook 10 day balloon challenge.
This design I made a t a guess was about 5/6 years ago at the London Jam. I have always liked the
construction of the dress and the bottom section is just an upside down flower that I used to make.
I decided to make the top section of the dress from 350's and as this was doubled so I could fit
the shoulders as I wanted to it did give her the look of being pregnant which I thought was
a bonus especially if you are doing some baby showers.

If out working the real world then I think one of these is the one I would make.
Just Black 160 around for tracks and not bubbles.

So a four balloon design with no rear bucket or the six balloon design with rear bucket.
