Padova Market & Harvest Moon

We were supposed to see thriving markets in the squares of Padova...imagine how many pictures I would have taken!  And we would not have had the time, given our appointment to see the Scrovegni Chapel, to fully explore St. Anthony's, Scrovegni, and also two full squares of thriving markets.  So perhaps it was good that it was a feast day and most of the markets did not materialize.

There were some beautifully colorful stands of fruit, vegetables and flowers, and the arcaded market of meats, cheeses and other good-smelling and looking things.

These layouts use a new kit from Jen Maddocks Designs, Harvest Moon.  The wonderful earthy bokah'ed backgrounds were perfect to show off the brilliant colors of these market pictures.  The fun little banner had almost the perfect number of flags (one extra got chopped off).  The frames and maskl are from Jen Maddocks Frames Template, with the addition of a few elements from Anna Aspnes ArtPlay Palettes Poppy and Autymnal 2.

In this second layout, actually done fiurst, I used some masks from Jen Maddocks H{all}oween kit, carefully covering up the spider on the edge. I like the way the mask fractures the photos, lining up with window frames and tent poles. Padova Market 1

Here are the previews from the kits primarily used in these layouts (click to go to one of Jen's stores):
