{a new challenge at the paper variety!!}

This week at the Paper Variety the challenge is to create a paper project using FRUIT! :) :) Any fruit will do!

{home sweet home} I found inspiration from a jillibean strawberry! :)

For my framed project, I started with red bazzill. I heat embossed the Scenic Route "home" stamp twice. Then I covered a MR chip house with jillibean pp, added a AC "sweet" rub on, an embossed SR stamped heart and the layered strawberry. To finish my wall art, I added charcoal twine from the Twinery. {When using twine for a frame, I carefully apply a very thin line of Aleene's quick dry tacky glue and then lay the twine down. Using a cotton swab, I position the twine so that it is straight. This glue dries clear.}

If you participate in the PV fruity challenge, you could win this!!!! The June kit from Artful Delight!!! :) :) One more thing! Abby and Suzanne at the Paper Variety are having a Design Team call!!!

They are looking for an entirely new DT!!! It's not that the present DT hasn't done a good job...'cause seriously, we've rocked that past 6 months...{smiles!!}'s just that fresh faces bring in more followers, more participants and blog growth. All good stuff!!

If you would like to be part of a very fun, well organized challenge blog site, I encourage you to apply! The thing I love the most about the PV is that you can choose what you want to create for each challenge. :) You have until July 24 to get your application in. Good luck!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

hugs, patti

A terrific home decor piece, and I'm glad you shared your tip about using a Q tip to help smooth out the twine. I like that!
