I have an old kitchen scale that I still use when buying in bulk and need to repackage.   It came from my husband’s family.    The textures I used for this photo were Shadowhouse “old world”  twice and one layer of Kim Klassen’s “history" texture.    I did use a layer mask in between to take off some of the textures in the apples and the lavender.

Today I am joining Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday and Paper Heart Camera for Touch Up Tuesday

I've never seen a scale like that before. That's a very cool idea- I love the different textures.
