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:

Thank you for allowing me to share my fun with you. Join us each day to see what the Design Team is cooking up for you!
Ciao for now.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
