It's Getting Busy on The Farm

 Life has been a little hectic lately on the farm and it doesn't look like slowing up anytime soon. This weekend we will have Luke's family here while we do the weaning and branding. Luke has his new farm truck, an old Western Star semi-trailer, and his stock crate and he is so excited to finally use it! lol It also means a busy weekend for me keeping the troupes fed and cleaning up after them - joy!

Here are a few farm related layouts that I also did at the Wicked Princesses Retreat. The photo on this one was taken by Michala, a kids-eye view I guess. lol This is our beautiful old horse, Sonny.

I've used some October Afternoon 'Sarsparilla' on this one - it was perfect for these photos.

For the background, I have used the same technique as I've shown you before. I have used a Crafters Workshop template with some texture paste. When the texture paste was dry, I put the template back over the cardstock and sprayed it with mist. I love the effect it makes.

This next layout also features some October Afternoon - the 'Farmhouse' range this time. My Mum took this photo of all 3 kids together in the chook pen. Yep, that's an old dunny for the chookhouse. 

Here's a close up of the title using some Jillibean Soup corrugated alphas.

And here are a few more:

Thanks so much for stopping by....


  1. Wow, love the textured background in your first layout. And the honeycomb stencilling on the second layout rocks! Love how you have used a black pen and detailed the edges of your pieces of paper!!

  2. Gorgeous work, great idea on the texture & mist, will have to try that!

  3. LOVE how you've used the October Arvo papers here...they're so fabulous & that texture bg is really wonderful...I'll have to put it on the 'to try' list!!!! TFS:):):)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment! I love reading them. :)
