Birds in the water fountain
« on: May 22, 2014, 09:13:46 PM »
It's my mother-in-laws birthday tomorrow and she has followed and supported my balloons since the first flower I made.  She loves to see each balloon I create and regularly sorts and packs balloons for my balloon bag. Every year I make a very special balloon that I have never made anyone before. This year I took inspiration from her love of birds in the garden. She has always had a bird bath and multiple bird feeders so I decided to make her a special column with birds bathing in the fountain. The water is lit with fibre optics as she also likes lights :)

Birds created from google pictures - credit to balloon animals.com and Patrick van de ven

The great thing about this community is being able to follow the trail and see how one thing inspires the next. We've seen these bird designs on their own before as you mentioned from Patrick and Michael Floyd, but here you've taken them and made a whole new composition and it's amazing. Really well done!
