This wonderful layout really caught my attention while I was surfing through several scrapbook blogs. My eyes were directed to the way that the tags were incorporated into this layout. I also love the rustic look, using chipboard and a lot of distressing. I would like to thank Karen Shady for this wonderful layout.
Wood grain cardstock was used for the background. Chicken wire chipboard along with corrugated paper was placed over the top of the wood grain paper. Karen then added five distressed tags and incorporated them into her layout. This gave it great dimension and popped out those darling pictures of her boys. Karen then added some chipboard mini grass clusters, a rosette, and a chipboard flower with a metal button to give it the last details. Be sure to visit Karen’s Scrap Spot for more of her wonderful designs.
