Farm Scene Layout by Tracey Sabella

It's Tracey here today to share a layout featuring some of the fabulous
Leaky Shed Studio farm chipboard pieces. 

I recently came across this photo of our son, Joseph, taken many years ago when he was a wee toddler enjoying time on the tractor with his grandpa. The Leaky Shed Studio Tractor and Windmill are such absolutely perfect accents for this special memory.

Tips and Techniques
To achieve this rust finish on the Leaky Shed Studio Windmill, I painted it with
Sophisticated Finishes Iron Metallic Surfacer, then the Rust Antiquing Solution.

I accented with chicken wire and used light molding paste to stencil the wheat background.

The Leaky Shed Studio Tractor is painted John Deere Green to go with my daddy's tractor.
I grunged up the tires to look like it's traveling down my mixed media farm lane. 

I've been trying to use up things from my stash and these ribbon slide letters were painted to look
rusty and strung together with twine. The black crackle is from an older rub-on sheet. 

This is one of my twine flowers. A tutorial for these flowers can be found here

I layered burlap and other fabrics around the photo along with strands of threads.
