Fly - Bella Creations challenge

I did this LO for the Bella CreationsTake Flight Transformation group.  This is a bit different from my typical LO, but I sure had fun creating it! I used the BasicGrey Curio collection  which I am finding is just perfect for nature LOs - you really wouldn't think so but I've done several nature themed pages with it and love the results.  Anyway, I started out with the solid sheet, Cabriole, and put a Crafters Workshop template over it and using distress ink in Tattered Rose and Tumbled Glass, creatied the floral and bird background image.  The Dusty Attic column, bowl and wings were painted with Liquid Pearls in Bisque.  On the column, I used a little antique white acrylic paint under the Liquid Pearls.  I fussy cut the two floral patterns from the Gouache pp.  I used a journal stamp to create my journaling card.  I cut the birdcage using the Alterations large cage die and I cut the pp over it from some very very old pp,  Michaels Slab V I think it was.  Whew, never thought I'd use that again but I like the woven basket pattern.  I painted some Dusty Attic leaves with Olive Vine glimmer mist.  I used the BG letters in green that came with this paper pack but I painted them with glimmer mist olive vine to darket the color a bit.I added the strip of paper at the bottom and fussy cut along the top to give the illusion of grass.  Then I clustered my flowers and that's all there is to it!
