Rome 1950 by Pascale B.

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up n 49 and Market blog with a new layout featuring a photo of my father taken during a trip to Rome with his friends in 1950. Naturally, I used the Captured Adventures collection that is perfect for a vintage photo like this one.

First I stamped the background with the 1787 stamp with two inks. I added two more stamp images from the Captured Adventures stamps set 2. When done, I primed the paper with clear gesso.

Next, I added some colors with different inks and a stencil. Instead of spraying the inks through the stencil, I used a blending tool to add the inks. I added a second design with another stencil and modeling paste.

I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper that I colored with the same inks. I colored also the blue Vintage Shade Cluster flowers with a blue-gray ink.

I cut a few papers to add under the photo from the Dandelion Fields bonus sheet and the Captured Adventures 6×6 pack. I added some sisal before gluing all the embellishments with 3D gel.

Next, I dried brush the flowers with white gesso to tone down the color and accentuated the vintage look.

To finish the layout, I splattered Indian ink and I added some microbeads.
