Altered birdcage

When we were on vacation I found this little birdcage in a flower shop, and I loved it. Once we were home I got some ideas to alter it. I was inspired by the moodboard from Dusty Attic Challenge August to work with these gorgeous colors. I love the earthy green and rusty effect. I would like to enter my project for this challenge.
The birdcage was turquoise when I bought it. I used so many paints, sprays, glitter and more paint to give it this aged look. I used Ornate pendants #3 and Hashtag Sayings chipboard pieces from Dusty Attic. I used the pendant to create the hanging part for the praying angel from Relics&Artifacts Archival (Milagros). I've made this project also for the challenge from the Relics&Artifacts Tribe on Facebook.
Many metal elements are from Scrap unlimited
I used some to tear apart and alter the little bird on top. Below are some close up pictures.

My all time favorite part: using Swarovski crystals and lots of ultra fine glitter and some holographic glitter dots. I used some painted leaves from the branch to create wings for the angel.

Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn
