Autumnal Birdcage

Happy Tuesday friends,

I’m excited to share this sweet little autumnal project with you today.  I used the Prima Marketing birdcage from the September Mixed Media kit, as well as scraps of paper and practically all the florals from the September Cards, Tags & More kit – this kit is sooooo beautiful, and jammed packed with luscious Fall colors!

The first step was to detach the back portion of the birdcage and give the entire unit a thick coat of gesso (I used Heavy Gesso). I then applied an equally thick coat of crackle paste to both pieces.

After drying, I began adhering “the oh-so-pretty” Prima flowers along with leaves and other elements I punched out of the 49th & Market cutout sheet. I also added flowers to the base on the inside and glued a little birdie from the elements sheet on top.

I then used Soft Gel Medium to glue a couple of paper scraps and butterflies to the back piece.  I then finished the top with seam binding (included in the Card, Tags & More kit!) and another flower.

This was such a fun, FUN project! I hope you purchase these kits and set aside time to just play, play, play! There are so many fun items included. I had a hard time deciding which to use and which to hoard…LOL!
