Saturday 12-15 Color Challenge


Saturday 12-15 Color Challenge

Of course, this is another layout based on photos from Italy. :) I was fascinated by the Nativity Scene at the cathedral in Sorrento. Instead of just the Holy Family and a sheep or two, this one spanned yards of space and depicted a whole village, with the Holy Family at the top of the hill. Angels were suspended from the ceiling as well. The whole scene was behind glass, so I hope you can see the details. It was quite beautiful.
I tried to follow this week's colors, but had to sneak in a bit of purple in the embellishments. TFL

    Wonderful page Diane. I LOVE the curled edges on the photos!!
    This must have been something to see!
    Thanks for sharing these photos from your wonderful holiday - they would be great to see in real life. Your page is put together nicely and the purple for the challenge looks good.
    I am loving your photos from Italy. They are superb. This Nativity scene is wonderful. The colors in you layout are so rich, I can only imagine how splendid they must have been in real life. The background paper is such a pretty compliment to the richness of the photos and I also love the aged curled frames. Just lovely.
    Beautiful, Diane! I love the aged photo looks, and all the little extra touches.
    Wonderful page, Diane. I love seeing Italy through your fabulous photos! What a beautiful Nativity Scene - I love the antiquity of the curled photos against that beautiful background - wonderful colors! Thanks for sharing a little bit of Italy - it's such fun to see your pics!
    I love all the detail in these scenes... your photography is superb here, it must have been really hard to get it all in! What a scene... fancy the work involved in putting all those pieces together... whew! I like your damask paper with these photos and the simple embellishments... really pretty.
    On my monitor, the photos have a kind of purple impression (not off-color, just bits of almost purple here and there that blend together) so it works really well. I've seen one of these nativities at a shrine near my mothers - so impressive, you can look forever with all the details. Love the cluster and the gold mat behind the photos. These scenes are so specific to a time and place, I find myself wondering what would be included in a modern one - I'm picturing little vignettes in my head, but how would you capture that?
    Lovely Diane. Your brushwork is great, the purple embellisments are the perfect compliment to the photos. Really like the aged curled photos too. Enjoying your Italian Layouts!!
    Oh, this is just super. I love Nativities and this one is lovely and just like the one in an old Italian church nearby. Your embellishments and beautifully blended background completes a gorgeous Holiday page. I was so happy to see that the Italy tour went "Christmas" for a bit.
