526th Balloon Sculpture, Winter Solstice Fairy

Standard
526th Balloon Sculpture, Winter Solstice Fairy

Well, it is that time of year again. The Winter Solstice is almost here! It is a time for reflecting on light.

I came up with this idea to make a  winter fairy who would be a bringer of light. The photos don’t do this piece justice, it is soooo much cooler in person.

This is a Patricia Balloona original design. 🙂 I drew the eyes on paper and then cut the eyes out and taped it to the balloon as I was afraid to take the chance as I am a bit rusty on drawing faces on balloons, it has been a while.

A friend of mine introduced me to Fairy Lights and of course I had to implement it with my balloon work. I think I did something pretty innovative for wings. I put the fairy in fairy lights son!

Hope you like it and find this idea inspiring. I did a bit a mixed of media with feathers and lights and I really love how she came out! I also really love the way the flower came out. It is my take on an Iris flower.

I originally made the skirt one way and then went back and made it a little fuller. Not sure which I like better. Pics of both included. You be the decider. 🙂

Happy Twisting!
