Adalyn's Luvvy Bear Mobile

Today I have the privilege of being the Monday Hostess at Digital Delights.  I made a mobile for my new granddaughter's bedroom using the little Luvvy Bears and Starry Booboo.

First, I sized and printed the bears on Copic paper from GinaK. Then set out to color them all! After starting the process of coloring 8 Luvvy Bears and 2 Starry Booboo's I thought maybe I should have used the pre-colored versions.  I think it is great that Wendy gives us those two options.

Next was the process of constructing the mobile wire structure.  I used craft wire from Michael's making two 18 inch long sections with loops on the end and one shorter (about 12 inches) section with one end looped.  These three pieces were wrapped together on each other at the center of the two longer sections.  This essentially made an 'x' with a tall hat.

Then I added little pieces of wire with stars glued on the ends.  I attached the bears with SU Dimensional's. The bears seemed incomplete until I added little pink bows.
