Fish Mobile

The fish mobile is finally finished. I haven't been working on much flat artwork recently but I've been working on 3-D and clothing projects. This is one that I've been working on for a while, doing bits and pieces as I go along. My daughter has an ocean themed room--and got an idea for a fish mobile with ribbons on it to be like water. But I ended up making my own ribbons from fabric which came out more like seaweed, or jelly fish tendrils.

Here is a close up of the fabric and some of the beads.
This was the first layer put on the framework. I used a floral wreath framework, which has several layers of wire for support.
I started by creating the fish, one at a time over a few weeks. This was the final fish I made.

The orange fish was the first fish I made.
