Shabby Chic Bird Cage with Rae

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Today I’m sharing my project I have made for our July Mood Board Challenge using the July scrapbook kit.

Here’s the kit:

Here’s the mood board:

And this is what I came up with:

I started out by choosing this Prima Marketing bird cage to alter using the kit.  I added some distressed layers of the Scrapboys Dream Garden paper to the back panel, then added some elements that I fussy cut out of the papers including the hexagon frame with flowers, clocks, a butterfly and a little garden bucket.  I used foam tape to create dimension between the layers.

I picked all of the pink and blue flowers (49 and Market) I was going to use, then I whitewashed them with gesso for a muted, shabby chic look.  I added some to the inside of the cage first.  This bird cage also came with a little bird, so I inked her blue, and made her a nest so she could sit pretty in the cage.

I added the rest of the whitewashed flowers to the outside of the cage, and I added one of the Prima Market resin bees (from the kit) to finish it up.

Here’s the completed look:
