Off to the Nativity

The Gothic Arches theme is Joy at Christmas/children. I thought this little angel looked pleased with her allotted part - didn't we all want to be the angel in our nativity plays (one year I was the cow!!!).

I have fallen in love with the Tim Holtz homemade sprays (see entry below for recipe). This one is made with DI refill ink in Antique Linen, and Perfect Pearls bronze. Again I have photographed it so that you can see the glimmer. The background is my register on a music stand - I took it at school to get the best light.

Oh this is so pretty, love that colour! Have to admit that I was always chosen to be Angel Gabriel because I was tall and blonde!
