December balloon chat challenge, Love
« on: December 03, 2008, 11:06:59 PM »
Well with Valentines day fast approaching :lol:  
Thought we'd have love as the theme, should be plenty of scope here for some creations.
Will try & get a better photo in the morning of this, keep getting the flash on the picture.

I did a cupid like this for a Valentines challenge last year.  I made a few improvements to it this time around.

I decided to try to make a simple heart from a round balloon.  I have been trying for three days to do it.  Just a little go each day.  I had some interesting results but not the nice shape I wanted.  But here it is at last.  I finally sussed it.  A flat heart from a round balloon.

On one of the other forums I belong to a challenged in creative thinking was issued to use a certain 'style' of design and incorperate a song theme into it.  The design style was what you can do with the heart shape.  

The rainy days heart style, works well for most little girls.  I just change the color of the "caring" bear to whatever their favorite color happens to be.  Then, instead of the rain clouds, I add a 5-petal flower.  For the flower I use a yellow 260 to make a center bubble, then the rest of that balloon I use to strap the flower onto the heart.

The love bites heart style:  In this photo the mouth is glue dotted onto the heart, but when I make it in public, I use scraps of 260s to strap it onto the heart.

The every rose style: I either omit the stem of the rose ('casue I don't carry pipe cleaners/chenille stems in my apron while working) or use an inflated 160 to make it.  I've also made it using tulips, fancy flowers, daisies, and sunflowers/coneflowers instead of the rose.

Happy twisting,
Bonnie, The Balloon Lady (who bows to Thelma's awesome powers of balloon stuffing.  :) )

Hi Bonnie.  I love the humour in the "love bites"  I like all the heat balloons you have done and shown here.  As we are bringing past models in I might as well add mine from that challenge too.  So here are some heart based balloons.
