beautiful 38

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of the beautiful Trevi fountain.  Scott took this photo while we were vacationing in Rome a few years ago.
I combined a variety of some of my favorite products to create this layout. I started with a piece of pretty paper from the 7 Dots Studio Thoughts Keeper collection then added texture using a MFT stencil along with Prima texture paste:
For color, I combined a variety of Ranger Distress Stains. 
For contrast, I stamped and heat embossed images from Prima Coffee Stains stamp set and embellished with a variety of white die cuts that were made using Spellbinders and Sizzix dies:
For a little more texture and design, I adhered a sprinkle of Prima Rust Glass Beads:
I'm joining along with the following challenges: 
7 Dots Studio Vintage themed challenge:
Stuck?! sketch challenge:
 ColourQ colour challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed my project!
Be Sweet ;)

We just visited the Trevi Fountain in Rome this fall. It was being restored so there was no water in it, but it was still magnificent to see. You have showcased your photo of it so beautifully. Another lovely page for your album!
