Altered Pizza Box, Sunday Stencil & Mixed Media Challenge @ STAMPlorations

{My DT work for STAMPlorations}

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! And that brings you to Sunday Stencil #5 and August Mixed Media Challenge at STAMPlorations blog

I altered this pizza box to fill in a travel mini album {still in the making, smile} for my niece birthday end of September. So I have ample time to make her the album. Zahra' and her parents went to Korea in July so I thought it would be neat to present her a travel theme gift for her 16th birthday. 

At first I wanted to make it shabby chic but decided a vintage style would fit the paper collection better and I'm very happy with the end result. 
 Supplies used: STAMPlorations Foiled Again StencilSTAMPlorations Artsy Border Maker Stamp, Versafine black ink pad, Kaisercraft Now Boarding Collection, Alpha gesso & modeling paste, Tim Holtz Distress ink pad, Tattered Angel glimmer mist, Sizzix machine, Heartfelt Botanical Wings die, watercolor paints, black gel pen and from my stash: gauze, gem, buttons and kitchen slip mat for stamping
Some up-close snap shots:
 What do you think of this project? I hope it gives you some idea to decorate your pizza box or whatever box you have.

 This was how it looks like in the first place:
I shall update you when I have finished the travel album.
Until then. Have fun stenciling and join the mixed media challenge here.
You have until August 31 and enter as many project as you like.
See you there!
