The topic: I want to make another balloon

----------------------------------------------

I've made two now. My first one pales by comparison to my second one.

You can see the larger balloon is more detailed than the first one. Well, I have a place in the living room that would be a perfect spot for one. One of the toughest things for me is to choose paper. Last year I bought paper from B & H Photo. Last year I cut a few pieces of the heavier paper and printed it out with some digital paper designs I bought on Etsy and I was very pleased with the result.

Having an idea of what I might want for my balloon, I headed over to Etsy and checked out their watercolor digital paper designs and got quite a few (they're really cheap).

Then this past weekend, I cut some more  paper. I cut over fifty pieces. That will give me enough to work with.


Cutting the paper was a process. First I had to cut it in lengths of twelve inches, then cut the paper in half.

It was time consuming, but I cut a lot of pieces and these should last me a while.

I checked my files, I do have the enlarged templates for the balloon, so all I have to do now is choose what I want to use, then print out the sheets.

I hope it looks as good as I imagine it can.
