Bee Amazing Mobile

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a project I made with the gorgeous Bee Amazing Mixed Media Kit from Hydrangea Hippo.

I love the amazing colors and textures in this kit, and as soon as I saw the embroidery hoop, I knew I wanted to make a photo mobile.

I cut the large doily into small medallions, turned the book paper into roses and hearts, and then wired it all together with a few favorite photos to create this project.

I kept the wiring of the mobile simple, and honestly a little messy, to add character and interest to the mobile….plus, it is a lot easier than using my jewelry making skills.  lol

I hope you enjoy this project.
