This was for the recent fairy tale swap- I made a long hanging peter pan mobile!  It was tricky to figure out how to balance it properly.. and I also had the added hazard of two curious kitties who were *very* interested in it.  I was afraid they'd eat it!

Components:




I used floral gauge wire- the 16 gauge you can get at the craft store.

Heard about the guy who fell off a skyscraper? On his way down past each floor, he kept saying to reassure himself: So far so good... so far so good... so far so good. How you fall doesn't matter. It's how you land!

As a huge Peter Pan fan, I have to say that this is absolutely beautiful! Where did you find those images? Old books?

morphine, bleedtearsofshame, so glad that you like this!

The mermaid's lagoon, the kite, and Tinkerbell's apartment were from a 1920s edition of Peter Pan illustrated by Gwynedd Hudson, and the others I borrowed from art.com... I already have some of those editions, but it was easier to borrow since my scanner is broken.  The other illustrators are Alice Woodward, Roy Best, and Mabel Lucie Attwell.  I painted the Gwynedd Hudson illustrations as my edition is in black and white, the original was colourized.  I'll try to get you the isbn later =)  I've got a cool version illustrated by Edward Ardizzione, and of course Arthur Rackham's Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens.  I'm a total book nerd!

This is a good reference for illustrated versions of peter pan:
