Say Yes To The Dress

Hi crafty friends... new month, new theme at Unruly Paper Arts. We are focused on wings, fairies, angels, birds, feathers .... just create something with wings. I was really in the mood to get messy, so I decided to create this vintage styled/steampunk mixed media canvas. 
The background had all different kinds of layers, from napkins to modeling paste, with spray mists, and stamped images. 
My birdcage was textured with Art Basics Modeling Paste Graphite and then sprayed with beautiful Lindys. Charms were created and hung from the bottom of the cage. 
The vintage style mirror is chipboard, painted and crackle added and then I used T!m Holtz's Ideology Mirrored Sheets for the main mirror. 
I then busted out my German Glass Glitter collection and gave a sprinkle here and a sprinkle there for gorgeous texture and color.  And there you go.... For a step x step tutorial sit back grab a cup of tea and enjoy my Snapguide Tutorial below... Creatively yours, Toni

This is an amazing creation! I love all the layers you included and how there are so many great details that come to light the longer I look at this! It's stunning and the color palette is incredible. I love how you were able to combine so many different elements so skillfully. You've made a real treasure here and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
