Default MIX423 Balloons 3-5-21

Hostess: MariLynn
Title: Balloons
Challenge: To use balloons to make a mixed media project
Keyword:MIX423

Hello, this is MariLynn. I hope you were paying attention last week when I said you should get a balloon for this week's challenge. I have been having fun making mixed media backgrounds with my gel press and balloons. The balloons I have been using are little water balloons that I have blown up. I put paint on a pallet and then I dip the balloons into the paint and then put it on my gel press. I like using the balloons instead of a brayer to add the paint.to my gel press because it adds an extra layer of randomness of color. Brayers tend to blend more than the balloons. I have also used the balloons directly to the paper. It gives another interesting look.
So my challenge for you is:
1.Use a balloon to make your mixed media project.
2. If you don't have a balloon, maybe you have a balloon stamp that you can use.
3. If you don't have a balloon stamp you could draw a balloon by drawing an upside down tear drop and add a triangle at the bottom and a squiggly line for the string.

Gallery can be found here. Gallery at Splitcoaststampers
Remember that you need to use more than one media to count as mixed media. I look forward to see what you create.

I am going to post my challenge early so that if you want to go get a balloon to play along you will have plenty of time. I hope you have a blessed day.

Thanks for the fun inspiration. Due to our highest level of lockdown restrictions with only essential retail open, I was unable to find anything suitable, but I will stick a post-it note on my gel plate as a reminder to try this later. Will try to at least create something with a balloon image.

I learned a lot about using Mylar balloons while making this card, MariLynn. Thanks so much for the challenge. MIX423 Send-A-Song Memories by ArtzadoniStudio at Splitcoaststampers by Lori "Artzadoni"

Here's mine! MIX423, MAR21VSNMINI2, Always Butterflies by annsforte3 at Splitcoaststampers

No balloons in the house so I used very large cotton balls inside a plastic bag!
