The Mystical Nativity

What a wonderful inspiration for December at ARTastic!

It is a very intricate painting my Botticelli...& I really love it, now that I have spent a great deal of time looking at it...

So here is mine...titled Our English Christmas, & I have credited dear Melinda for her very clever little twig idea...

What a profound painting this was of Botticelli!! Full of colour & wings & love, & that is what I have used as my inspiration.

I have scrapped a photo of my man & lovely daughter at Christmas, a few years ago when we visited England.  Our daughter was working over there & having never travelled OS it gave us the 'push' to go. It was freezing cold, but yet so english & so lovely, we had a marvellous time!!

I have included all the criteria I believe & enjoyed doing so I might add! I have made a stable out of twigs off a tree in my garden, & that was inspiration from my scrapping friend Melinda Spinks. I have hand cut 2 little angels, & embossed some chippie pieces just to help set the scene.  I had fun sanding the Core-dinations cardstock, to give a mottled effect & ended up with a rustic, yet precise LO.

Thanks for stopping by.... love
