Mixed Media Monday - Fruits

I had a bit of a creative block on this weeks theme at Mixed Media Monday

Not because I didn't like it~   not by any means!  Hermine chose a fantastic theme;  but one that was challenging for me.  

I was unsure how to incorporate an element that I have never used before. So this is what I came up with:  It's called "Fruit Flys"



As you can see, it is a mobile.  I used some strawberry and apple clips I have had on hand for about 2 years (I told you I don' t use fruit!).

I adhered feathers to create the wings, tied them up to some fishing line, and suspended them from a chipboard flower covered in patterned paper.    

Super simple!

What a great and original idea! I love your fruit flies. I think they could be gainfully employed at the end of a fishing rod too! Wonderful work.
