BLOG HOP ALERT! Graphic 45 and Spellbinders are CROSS-HOPPING this weekend... starting TODAY! Be sure to check out all the fun and prize opportunities!!!
I am THRILLED to share with you the steps to create a fun and zany "Hallowe'en In Wonderland" inspired mobile... as shared on the Graphic 45 blog a few days ago. As soon as I saw the new line by Graphic 45, this project popped into my head. I immediately thought of the movie scene where all of the card solders were trying to catch poor Alice... the cards were flying this way and that... and little Alice finally got away. I thought a hanging mobile would be a fun way to make those cards fly again!
A few notes... don't be afraid to try "off the page" projects. And don't be afraid to embrace the creative process during a project like this. This project started as a vision in my head... oh... it was spectacular! Although it didn't turn out how I envisioned it at the start, the changes that occurred during construction made it even better! Let's jump into this whimsical and silly Alice mobile!
Step 1... Create your frame. Instead of doing a traditional circle hoop for the mobile, I wanted it to be the shape of a playing card. We used the dimensions from a real card and multiplied it until we had the size we wanted. My darling husband put the frame together for me (thank you, Sweetheart!)
