I also made this Ken Stillman style balloon Cinderella for the Cinderella and Friends Princess Tea Party at the Tivoli last Saturday. I drew the face on myself.
Apparently there was going to be a fight as to who got to officially keep her, lol. Needless to say she was a huge hit. 🙂
There was a most lovely tea party event at the Tivoli yesterday. It was called Cinderella and Friends Princess Tea Party.
It was all magical. My daughter absolutely loved it. I made these columns to welcome guests for the event.
I made a girl mouse, and Jaq the good mouse friend of Cinderella. I took my idea of a teapot centerpiece and applied it to being a column.
I took different elements I have seen and put them together to make an original combo for the columns.
The effect came out quite nicely as well as color choices I made.
I put a mouse peaking around and greeting folks on each column.
These were such a hit which made me feel great and brought many magical warm fuzzies.
Art is meant to reach people and move them and mine especially is about bringing awe, wonder and joy.
Pictures of my work below. 🙂
It was Chattanooga’s 175th Birthday recently and I was hired to make balloons for its birthday party in Coolidge Park. Talk about a birthday party job!
I made this display to celebrate the 175th Birthday.
It is 3 columns with 1,7, and 5 toppers.
My display endured the cold and wind and sun and looked great even after 4 hrs of being outside!
Happy Birthday Chattanooga!
It was my awesome friend Jessi’s birthday recently and she loves the Nightmare Before Christmas.
How could I not make her a Jack Skellington? I just looked at a picture of him from the movie and put it together, I put it together fast too which was nice. I was in the zone and things just came together for me. It is like when you drive home on auto pilot and you don’t even remember how you got home or driving at all.
Drawing the face on was the most nerve wracking.
Also several months ago she bought me a party tank so I could practice making a helium bouquet, I have been waiting till her birthday to use it as of course I would make my practice bouquet for her!
I came up with this Jack Skellington myself and it is a Patricia Balloona original. I also made her my first helium bouquet and let me just say, that party tank did not go very far at all. It lasted just long enough though for me to make my first bouquet so that was awesome!
She loved it!
Below are pictures of my work.
I made this baby recently for a baby boy baby shower.
I was inspired by both Derek Wong and Tatyana DjeTa Lyashko and admired both of their baby designs. I thought to myself, hey I should make a love child as it were of both of their balloon baby styles and this is what I came up with as a result.
It was a huge hit! This is disgustingly cute if I do say so myself!
I was hired to make a centerpiece for a birthday as well as balloon entertainment and so I modified a Derek Wong Jack-in-the-Box and came up with this clown centerpiece below.
I have a huge list of things that I love and want to replicate and this was one of them so it was perfect to have a clown project to do. I really love the challenge of seeing if I can figure out how people did things and also add my own touch and twist as it were.
I should have made the top of the hat smaller but other than that I am very pleased and it was a huge hit at the party.
