Just because I can....D

I actually felt like putting something together for the sake of it.  Not sure what I will do with it yet lol.  I had seen a video on you tube Jennings644 showing how to make a birdcage using chipboard base and wire.  

I already had some paper covered wire and chipboard which I cut into a semi circle.  I cut 6 wires all the same length - obviously lol.  I made holes in the base and glued the wires in.  I then bent them towards the back and glued them in place.  I cut a couple of cocktail sticks for the perches and found small wooden birds to use for inside the cage.  I used tiny pink lace for the base of cage - four layers.  I used grey feathers inside the base to give it a little more, you know - feathery lol. 

I made a bow out of scrap ribbon and adhered to top of cage.  I painted the canvas and cage in lilac paint.  I sprayed perfect pearls over the background.  I then used a dylusions mask and modelling paste for the edging.  I painted some flowers and leaves in my stash using same colour.  I used white buff over the raised edges. To finish it off I found an old pearl droplet earring, took it apart and placed on the front of cage to give a blingy look.  

Now for the pics and sorry there are so many.
