Hi ladies

I have had lots of fun lately, playing with Wordlets and a cute little ScrapFX wooden fence. I’d like to share the end result with you. I created this layout starting with Prima Sun Kissed paper as the basis. Love the turquiose colours and splashes of yellow.

When I received the Post & Rail Fence I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it! If you look carefully, you’ll see that I have cut out the fence that the children are sitting on in the photo. And I have arranged them so they are sitting on the chipboard fence instead. I had to cut the chipboard fence up into parts in order reassemble it to fit the photo. Yes – it was actually quite tricky – much like a jigsaw puzzle, but I’m really happy with the result.

And the gorgeous little Wordlet ‘Homegrown’ was the perfect title for the layout. This was painted and patinated to give a worn old shabby feel.

I have to say that Scrap FX chipboard really does stand up to a lot of punishment! I have painted, sanded, soaked, carved, crackled, enamelled – you name it! And not once has this chipboard disintegrated on me! Fantastic stuff!
Thanks for stopping by!

I love this Maggie and what a neat touch to cut out the fence and replace with the chipboard one. Awesome page and great color palette!
