Mother's Day Mobile

Dangling projects are my constant companion in the studio this year.  Mother's Day required her own picturesque dangly mobile.

My ingredient list is as follows:
Eco Board   (Inchie and ATC sizes)
ATC and Inchie Images --I chose:
Inchies Children and 
Watercolor ATCs   
Marker or paint for edges of board 
Personal Photos, cropped to fit board 
Small screw eyes
Soft wire

First I need to gush about the Eco Board and the perfect sizes for an ATC or Inchies! Using the unique AlteredPages ATC and Inchie Images they fit perfectly and looked so professional mounted on the boards.

Here are the 2 image sheets I chose to use;
My Inchies:

My ATC sized images:

The Inchie with a tiny image, attached with a dry adhesive:

I printed the Mom photos onto cardstock in an ATC size (3.5"x2.5") and adhered with a dry adhesive.  

A 1/16" drillbit was sufficient to create a small hole for the screw eye to screw into.

Then the soft wire was cut and twisted to connect the parts.

One side finished:

The other side:

Ciao for now.
