I count the first two weeks in February 1983 as my BALLOON BIRTHDAY. That is when I picked up a bag of twistie balloons at a drug store along with instructions on how to make a balloon poodle.
I practiced and then added a balloon dog to a special greeting card I designed for a friend in the hospital for Valentines.
The next 33 years have been quite an adventure thanks to you. I have gotten to make up all kinds of fun stuff with balloons. I have gotten to travel and teach and exhibit and publish around the world. And I have gotten to meet extraordinary, fun, friendly, creative people everywhere I have been.
So, as I celebrate my 33rd Balloon Birthday this year, I pause to say “Thank You!” to all of you balloon enthusiasts for what we have shared in the past and for the even more exciting things we will share in the years to come.
This anniversary moment also marks the beginning of those even more exciting things as I begin year 34.
This year (2016) i will be launching RouseAPPS™ for the balloon industry at large.
RouseAPPS ™ is an exceptionally valuable suite of patented technologies that have been restricted in the past to use with Rouse branded balloon grid frames. That changes in 2016.
RouseAPPS™ (Applications of Patented ProcedureS invented by Graham Rouse) will be made available for use with every brand and type balloon grid frame by those who subscribe to membership in the RAPPS GrROUP™.
The formal launch of RAPPS GROUP is scheduled for July 2016, but limited Beta memberships are scheduled to open in late March at a substantial discount in order to test and refine the membership program.
RAPPS GROUP membership comes with a 30 day “Try It And Love It Or Leave It Within 30 Days With A Full Refund” satisfaction guarantee..
Get on the “INTERESTED” list for Beta Membership now by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “INTERESTED” in the subject line. We will add you to the “RouseABOUT Your Success” newsletter email list and notify you when RAPPS GROUP memberships open up.
RouseAPPS™ BIRTHDAY CAKE
The 10 foot diameter balloon birthday cake above illustrates two RouseAPPS.
(1) The RouseAPPS SIMPLE technique was used to build this cake as part of the 20th anniversary IBAC (International Balloon Arts Convention) event. IBAC was the precursor to the World Balloon Convention.
The video immediately below demonstrates the patented SIMPLE technique using RMS™ Banners. This technique is also very effective with other Rouse-Expand-And-Load™ (REAL™) balloon frames. And, it works beautifully with Pioneer Gridz, with SDS™, and with DIY balloon grids as well. Video demonstrations and instructions for non-Rouse balloon grid frames will be available to RAPPS GROUP members.
(2) The RouseAPPS FAST technique is an alternate approach to loading balloons to build this cake. The cake would look the same, but balloons could be loaded 2 to 10 times faster.
The FAST technique (also known as “Speed Graphics” is demonstrated in the video below. with RMS™ Banners. Video demonstrations and instructions for non-Rouse balloon grid frames will be available to RAPPS GROUP members.
