An All American Picket Fence

 Hi Leaky Shed Studio Fans!  Since Memorial Day is coming up I decided I wanted to create a layout with an Americana feel to it!  The Picket Fence was the perfect accent for that!
I painted it white but didn't work on perfect painting - I thought a worn feeling added to the Americana feel! I also love that it is a full 12 inches long making it perfect for a layout!   My whole layout was build around the fence with that as the anchor.  The layout tells the story of my little boys watching school kids out the window (we live across the street from a school).

Adding a little sticker banner to it allowed it be accented a little bit without detracting too much from the fence itself!  This fence would also be cool painted black and used in a halloween style layout or brown for a fall layout - such a versatile piece!!!

Hope y'all enjoy the upcoming holiday weekend and kicking off your summer!
