Perfectly Imperfect Air Balloon {MMP Creative Gym #21}


You know those moments when creativity just hits you - well that happened to me the other day while browsing trough internet and my favorite pages. At the Mixed Media Place blog I found this months challenge and just knew immediately what to create for it - a light bulb air balloon!


It was something with the picture of the balloon and quote that really got me going - I don´t know really. I just knew... 

I started with the obvious light bulb that I painted with Metallic Acrylics. I needed some sort of hanging mechanism so I stacked up a couple of mechanical on top of the bulb and fastened strings to it. 


I my bulb to represent freedom and for me the possibility to move forward is closely connected to freedom. Therefor I added mechanical propeller to the balloon. 


To be free does come with a bit of bumps and bruises along the way so my balloon could not be to "sweet". I added a worn effect by adding glass glitter, micro beads and some bits and pieces from my spare box of metal. And I love the quote - to be perfect is not something to strive for - dare to be Perfectly Imperfect (love those words by Heidi Powell).



Well that was all for today my friends. Please dare to be Perfectly Imperfect! Color outside the lines and look up in the sky (maybe a small blue balloon will be passing by...).
