|My great-aunt and her brother-in-law|
I used the Main Kit, Floral Add-on, Elements Add-on and Coordinating Paper Add-on.
|Coordinating Paper Add-on|
I started with the Garland paper from the Coordinating Paper Add-on. I did some stamping that didn't turn out the way I had planned so I gessoed over it and inked it slightly with some pink chalk-ink. I then die-cut two large circles out of the Garden Seeds paper (from the Coordinating paper add-on) and Branching Out paper (from the Main Kit), layered them over black cardstock copies and glued them onto the background. I also used the Garden Seeds paper to die-cut some leaves.
These are the dies I used:
I primed the chipboard fence (from the Main Kit) with clear gesso and then applied DecoArt white crackle paint. I also inked around the edges slightly with charcoal grey. The center of the fence would have been hidden under the photo anyway, so I cut it out to save for another layout and glued the end pieces to the page.
|Blue Fern Studios|
Country Picket Fence
I cut a mat for the photo out of the gingham paper included in the Main Kit and then glued it to a sheet of plain chipboard for stability. I used foam tape under this to balance the photo.
The corner flourishes and buttons were from my stash. Most of the flowers, with the exception of a couple of 49 and Market flowers from my stash, were from the Floral Add-on.
The clothespins were from the Main Kit and the butterfly from the Elements Add-on.
Thank you so much for taking a look today!
