Stick Fence Scene

Good Saturday afternoon.  My project today is a scene built on a wooden fence background that I made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge.  Our inspiration site was the Shabby Creek Cottage and I was inspired by a Mini Pallet Sign made with popsicle sticks.  I took it one step further and created a scene against the wooden stick fence background.

I started by gluing wooden sticks to a piece of cardstock using Mod Podge and then painted it with Picket Fence crackle paint.  Before the crackle paint dried I wipe it lightly with a baby wipe to wash the paint a little to give more of an aged whitewash look. 


Here’s a close up of the crackle paint whitewash.

I assembled all of die cuts, colored several of the pieces with Copic markers, distress ink and mini applicators and began creating my scene.  I attached the grass sections to the fence with glossy accents.  The tree, trellis, wagon wheel, watering can and pots were attached in the scene with mounting tape.  The vines, flowers and garden tools were attached with glossy accents.  I couldn’t resist adding the “Welcome to my garden” sign on the fence.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday.

  1. OMG…too weird….I was just looking at my popsicle sticks stash the other day and wondering what I could do with them. I have the natural colored ones and a package of different colored ones….don’t even remember why I bought them or for what project…too funny that your project today would give me the perfect use for them. Thanks so much. I love what you did with them…

  2. Beautiful scene Kittie. Great use of popsicle sticks but all those details are so delightful.
    I just love the little dies to create scenes like this.

  3. Good Afternoon, Kittie. OH!MY! this is fantastic, what an idea, and so well done. it would have to be framed or put in a shadow box to display. a perfect welcome. you are so creative. …..well done friend…..LOL

  4. Great use of the pickled white wash-looks cool on the wood fence (popsicle sticks). And the wheel is the perfect touch to go along with the country feel of this card.Love it!
