Fifth Grade Hot Air Balloon


I called this "Fifth Grade HAB" because it is covered with pages from a 1923 Speller. The pages from the 5th grade section are showing through a light coat of pastel colored acrylic paints. Distress inks were used to make it look timeworn and vintage. It is covered with a protective coating of beeswax for added dimension.
It hangs from a heavy duty clear line and measures about 7"w x 13"h.

I placed a picture of my daughter in the basket for fun. It is not attached and does not come with the balloon. Put a picture of your own family members; they would love to go for the ride! It is for sale on my Etsy page at
