A Pair of Pears

  Tammy's Scrappin Corner - Extra Texture

Greetings!  This week at Tammy's Scrappin Corner we are featuring extra texture on our projects.  I came across a challenge at A Day For Daisies that I wanted to combine with our challenge this week, it's fruits or vegetables with some sort of food packaging.  A free Digi is being offered at ADFD, it's a pair of Pears.  Here's my creation, an altered paper mâché box.

I used some modeling paste applied onto a portion of a stencil which you can see on the photo up above on the right, that one has some stain in Distress Barn Door which was diluted with water and wiped off quickly.  There is more texture from the paste in the first photo showing the top of the box.  I mixed the paste with some Distress stain in Vintage Photo this allowed for only the paste to recieve the color and not affect the paper underneath.  I then smeared it on top of the stencil and lifted it up, voila, instant texture. 
The gals over at A Day for Daisies wanted to see some food packaging, well since our Italian Foreign Exchange student has been here we have received several care packages from home!  On the right hand corner of both photos you can see some Italian writings, those are from a little paper tag attached to the pasta that was sent.  I also included the raffia ribbon on the top that I tied into a bow,  I also included a ribbon that was green, red and white (before I stained it) that ribbo n was attached to a big Italian salami his parents sent...Yum!  This little box will help bring back some memories of !ucas visit!
Here's the link to TSC show us your textured creations!  Here's the link for ADFD go pick up the sweet pear digi and go dig through

I will be entering this into the following challenges; - Dust off old supplies - Graphic 45 Botanica Bella papers - Anything Goes with a hand colored image - Anything Goes - sweets - let's go to the Movies "A Walk in the Clouds" a love story
