Hot Air Balloon....or...

...aviation at that time....
Well, this project  is  was on my To-Do List since a year, i think. As i was playing with pleister, a view days ago... i thought...why not trying to cover a balloon with pleister and ...see what happens...

After one day, the pleister was still wet. I took the balloon out and  left the pleister - balloon for 2 hours in a light warm oven, till it was dry. Then i started with painting and made a kind of basket from coasters by cutting them to size. I used my hot - glue gun and matt accents to glue everything together. 
I've painted the basket with acrylic paints in layers. Sewed the little bags from burlap. The ropes are secured to idea - ology memo pins, which i shortened.
I stamped the flying man on cardstock with DI Black Soot and heat embossed the image. I coloured him in with DI and H2O's. Then i adhered him to one rope.


 The mesh is a leftover from oranges i bought. It was red and i coloured it in with turqoise acrylic paint.
 Simon Says Stamp and Show a Red Letter Day. Now, this fits perfectly, don't you think? (:o) And i show this on the Creavil Challenge Blog Theme of Challenge No. 23 is Gears
