I'm not big into concerts so when I saw this challenge I knew Broadway was where I was going. And the first on my Broadway bucketlist is seeing the Little Mermaid. I love watching youtubes of the show, but I know that can't get half the splendor of actually watching in person. Some day!
Until then I'll tide myself over with this balloon arch and party set. It would be for a children's party or a fun mermaid themed event. I've been having fun learning how to do balloon twisting lately, so thought I'd craft a mermaid up!
Of course the day I want to take pictures it gets windy like crazy and Ariel wants to dive off the arch and the two seaweed columns take a run for it. The seaweed was even anchored down with small weights and it still ran off over my yard! So into the garage we go. Sorry for the picture quality, but I wanted to make sure Ariel stood tall!
And just in case this arch motivates you to buy your own Little Mermaid tickets, this QR code will take you to ticketmasters website.
Lots of pics. There's Scuttle and Ursula. Sebastian and Flounder and lots of fishy friends all as balloon sculptures too. I love the strings of balloon bubbles hiding in there as well.
Thanks for looking! And thanks to ticketmaster for the fun challenge and great prizes!
Wanted to try my hand at 3D illusion drawing. I believe it's called Anamorphic drawing, correct me if I'm wrong. So made a rubiks as my first, thinking to start with easy block shapes. Although it will probably be a while if I try anything else.
Found a box at the thrift store that was begging to be made into a treasure chest. I have an under the sea theme event I'm helping decorate for next week, so it will make its way there. After that will probably keep it for the nephews baby toys.
Just acrylic paint and time!
What is used to look like, plus a mid project pic.
That looks like a Bosch mixer. Are you using the dough hook or cookie paddles?
I'm using the wire whips. Any mixer with the whipping attachment should work. I'm guessing some of the cheaper handheld mixers wouldn't be powerful enough though.... that or your hand would get really tired holding it for ten minutes LOL.
