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.
