A mobile view... 

Hi to our lovely readers, I hope you're all well and had a great bank holiday. 

You've got to check the following out, it really is just adorable... Designed and created by one of our Canadian Design Team Members, Kirsten Stackhouse it really is a fantastic piece... 

Description by Kirsten: 

Today I made a simple mobile, to be hung in a children's bedroom or window perhaps. This is a variation of a project I loved doing when I was in 

 primary school. All you need is some coloured paper, some white paper, Kurecolor Twinmarkers, ZIG Writer pens, Kurecolor Fine & Brush markers, a pencil, scissors, some string, and earring fastenings (sold at any craft store). 

Step 1) I penciled and cut out several star shapes and an oval on coloured paper, then cut out slightly smaller shapes using white paper to glue within the larger coloured ones. After the glue dried, I took Kurecolor Twinmarkers in light colours and had fun making quick whispy strokes across the white paper. 



Step 2) I then used a ZIG Writer pen to draw a picture in the main oval - to be the focal point of the mobile. A space ranger, in this case. I coloured her with a light Kurecolor Fine and Brush marker. 


Step 3) After you have however many pieces you want to include in your mobile cut out - CAREFULLY poke holes in the top and bottom of the stars, and attach an earring fastening to the top of it. Add additional stars using jump rings.


Then simply hang the pieces from a string, and you can put it anywhere!

If you too would like to have a go at making something similar to this you can buy the products from our Kuretake Shop Site.  

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your week, all the best, Becki x
