Pegs, pegs and more pegs...

.... and pretty pegs too!

Another idea that has been bouncing around in my head - & seeing a bit of  a trend for painted pegs in scrapbooking and card making - I thought I 'needed' some JOFY pegs!

These are just normal wood pegs (maybe a little bit smaller than some available 1x8.5cm) that I bought in Sainsburys (other supermarkets are available lol)
I like these because they have bit of detail on them - 2 lines carved in...

I painted them all in Fresco Finish JOFY Limited Edition paints - no need to prime the wood - nice and easy. Then I added pattern and detail with stamped designs (again with JOFY paints).

On paper: JM34
On cardboard, top row, left to right: JM16, all other pegs are JOFY10
On cardboard, bottom row, left to right:  book text (couldn't resist!), JOFY24, JOFY14, EEV06 (love little spots!)

I could use them to hold notes together, or on a 12x12 scrapbook page, or I could attach them to an indoor 'washing line' and hang sketches, tags and other interesting bits and bobs.


Enjoy your weekend.
