I debated for a long time what kind of fence to use on the Netherlands house – the St. Joris Doelen Guild House. I even stenciled a cobblestone base and made a small simple fence to go with it, but I thought it detracted from the house. Finally I settled on a simple light-colored base – ochre and white gesso, antiqued a little with some Tim Holtz distress paint, Ground Espresso. Then I glued together several layers of the Martha Stewart Iron Gate edge punch and painted them the same color as the roof of the house. I am very pleased with how it turned out.
I am also tickled with how nicely the door works to insert the LED light. I think I’m going to use that on most of my houses.
Next – a small Halloween house and the a Christmas house that will be really cool, I think – assuming I can build what I envision.
Take care everybody.
