"Crazy Cars Vignette"

G. Rouse 2006

This is the layout for one of the many wonderful projects scheduled for the next RouseABOUT Graphics Seminar,  November 11-13, 2006 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.   The 10' x 10' x 8.5' corner set is for a "take-off" on the animated movie, "Cars".  Sculptures of cars and signs will be added to the set during the Balloon-a-Palooza Workshop Nov. 14-17.

RouseABOUT students will learn graphic skills during the seminar to design and produce their own projects.  They will be able to add this piece and other seminar projects to their portfolios.  RouseABOUT Grads will earn  Certification in Rouse Balloon Graphics.


Get more details on the seminar at the following link, sign up,  then join us for great learning and great fellowship with like-minded balloon professionals.  This is a terrific hands-on learning opportunity.

Madrid Pumpkin

Elisabete and Antonio Farto of Happyfesta Baloes.  They are the very first RouseABOUTs in Portugal.  They made this pumpkin at the RouseABOUT Seminar in Madrid, Spain.  The pumpkin is double thick and made with two panels of  RMS Banner and then cut to shape.  This double-layered technique can be used to make hundreds of original designs.  Download instructions to make a similar pumpkin from the link below.




"Balloon Train"

G. Rouse 2006

A Circus Train similar to this balloon train by Graham & Mary Queen Rouse, is scheduled for construction during the Balloon-A-Palooza Workshop November 14-17, 2006 in Milwaukee. 

The 3D train is only one of many projects to be included in the Balloon-A-Palooza public balloon art Exhibit opening on November 18, 2006. Over a period of ten days,  20,000 visitors are expected to view the Exhibit, which is being produced by Carmen Ballering of Balloons Milwaukee.

If you would like to help produce the Balloon-a-Palooza Exhibit and help "give back" to the community, you can get more details on the Balloon-a-Palooza Workshop at the following link, sign up, and then join us for great learning and great fellowship with like-minded balloon professionals.  This is a terrific hands-on learning opportunity.




Halloween is just catching on in Spain, so our students were avid for thematic designs.  This 8.5' Flying Witch is a production of RouseABOUT Graphics Seminar graduates at Liragram Espana, in Madrid, Spain earlier this month.  You too can learn to produce such pieces with RMS by attending a RouseABOUT Graphics Seminar.  Follow this link to check out the next RouseABOUT Graphics Seminar.
