Thursday the 27nth of June was my 9 month balloon twisting anniversary and I had a gig at Earth Fare that day well as my first assisted living balloon gig.
I wanted to do something special and festive for Independence Day coming up.
I made my first flag thanks to Michael Langerman’s USA flag tutorial on Youtube,
I also made my first Bald Eagle, which I adapted Andre Nolle’s Phoenix design, Youtube tutorial link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYpD8fV6ZuE, to make.
I made a flower weave for the neck and made the curves pointy to go for a jagged design that bald eagles have.
I made a flag pole also thanks to my experience from making Andre Nolle’s Column design that I learned, link to Youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QI3QcDY4yU. As you will see, I adapted it just a little bit on the top as the eagle rested on the top.
It was a hit and I am so glad that everything worked out and the three pieces could work together!
And yes, there are 50 stars painted on the flag and 13 stripes! 🙂
Enough talk, now pics.
My husband and daughter are in pic below. I love this picture!
