Noise while turning and accelerating

Yesterday my explorer started making a noise. The noise seems to be coming from the front driver side wheel area. The noise is more noticeable when accelerating while turning and gets softer when the wheel is straightened while driving. I've looked all over the wheel area and don't see anything out of the ordinary. It almost sounds like a ticking sound. Like when a little kid puts a baseball card in the spokes of his bicycle. Has anyone ever heard of this or have any ideas what it could be? Thanks in advance.
