Bird Cage Reverse Canvas ~ Donna Salazar Designs

 I am back this month with a Reverse Canvas featuring Donna's Bird cage and Botanique Patterned paper. I was really happy with how this turned out! I have had a very busy couple of weeks trying to get ahead so we can go on a family holiday to New Zealand next week! I am sooo looking forward to the break!
 The mesh around the edge of the frame is like a florist mesh, I stuck it to the edge of the frame then painted over it!.

 I love this little birdie in here! He was just perfect!

The steps for creating this finish on the bird cage is as follows!


Step 1: Paint the bird cage pieces black
Step 2: Once Dry ink over the black with the Pewter Mix'd Media Inx
 Ink Both Pieces.
 Step 3: Sprinkle the Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx Embossing powder over the ink and Heat set.
 Step 4: Sand and distress to give a worn and weatherd look.
 I have used 3D foam tap to attach the two pieces together, slightly bending the front of the cage to give it a curved look. At the center of the base of the bird cage there is several layers of the foam tape.
