Two For Tuesday - Jason Hackenwerth

It's a birthday week in our home this week - a special one as we have someone officially becoming a teen.
So what better way to celebrate than with some balloons for the 'Two For Tuesday' segment!

Of course the work of Jason Hackenwerth isn't your usual party balloon manoeuvre, no siree.
It's fun yes, but oh so much more. These installments are huge and are often hung in public spaces.
What appeals to me about them is their underwater/outerworldly qualities and of course their zesty colours.

In addition to the two pieces that I'm featuring here today I'd encourage you to take the time to have a peek at the following videos which I hope will give you an appreciation of the creativity and skill involved in making these pieces and see how they literally come to life....can't wait to learn what you think.





If your interest has been piqued then you will enjoy finding out more about Jason at his blog, FB page and website. Love your work Jason!
I wonder if you'd consider creating something special for a beach party theme next weekend!?!
