Love Birds Mobile

Love Birds Mobile

Here it is, all cut, strung, balanced, and hung: my contribution to the mobile swap. It is surprisingly difficult to photograph a mobile. These are my best attempts.

After lots of planning, plan-scrapping, mistakes, and impossibilities, I decided to go with paper because it’s so light and makes the mobile, well, mobile. I also decided on a straight dowel to hang the whole thing from after trying out a wooden hoop — I liked having the possibility of hanging the mobile in a window or against a wall. The cut paper lends itself well to neat shadows in the right light.

I’m going to make a little tutorial (including patterns) if anyone wants it. I’ll post it this week.
