This is the last 3D project submitted for the 2011 Artisan Award. I always wanted to make an air ballon out of paper and so I decided to give it a try and you know what? It was a lot easier than expected but it sure was time consuming.
The actual balloon was made using a paper mache technique and those little sparkly circles covering the entire balloon were made by spraying the newsprint DSP with my custom made glimmery spritzers using classic ink reinkers.
I used a lot of seam binding all over this project and the basket was made by coving a plastic container I had found at Michaels with more newspring dsp.
