Dusty Attic - Rustic Birdcage

Hi Everyone!!

Dropping in today sharing my latest creation created for the gorgeous Dusty Attic April Mood Board Challenge. The challenge has an amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher for the winner and to enter you simply need to use the Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic Blog.

So this is the April Mood Board.

I was inspired by the country rustic feel of this mood board. I drew my main inspiration from the barbed wire and the rust of the wagon wheel.

This is my interpretation of the moodboard...

'Rustic Birdcage'

So my birdcage is full of Dusty chipboard. Through the centre of the cage inside is the smaller Cog Cluster and it has been surrounded by other Dusty cogs of all sizes. To create a feature at the side of the cage I attached and Industrial love these!

The cage has been wrapped with some Dusty Barb Wire and I screwed in some household screws as an added feature. 

Chains, Ribbon and old dress jewelry adorn the cage.

Inside the cage I have hung an old earring to create a swing.

On the cage stand I have added some Dusty Lavender sprigs to the cluster.

Graphic 45 - Earth Day Upcycled Gift Box


Dropping by today to share a project I created for Graphic 45 for Earth Day. For my Earth Day project I decided to upcycle a large matchbox which would normally end up in the bin and turn it into a small gift box.

'Be Yourself'

From that matchbox to a beautiful gift box. It would perfect to place in some yummy sweets or maybe a gift card for that special family member or friend.

Lots of fussy cut details...totally love!

How amazing are those butterflies?

Prima - Easter Jar


Today I am sharing a little altered jar I created for Easter for Prima. I used some older Prima vines as the base and then topped with some gorgeous Prima flowers. It has also been adorned with ribbons, Memory Hardware chain and trinkets, a super cute shabby resin bunny and finally a My Prima Planner tassel. 

'For You'

As the centre of my bow cluster I have used the Elegance tassel. I simply folded and glued the bow to the top of the tassel. The hook was the used to attach the 'For You' tag.

I am going to fill this jar with small chocolate eggs and give to my daughter as an Easter gift.
