Nativity Village

About: I love creating. I love ART in all its forms. I am a daughter of the 50s, born in 1992. I had the pleasure to be a Featured Author on this fabulous site, and you can read my interview here: https://www.ins...

Every year, as tradition, I make a different nativity village. I have fun doing it and it's what I love doing the most - yes, more than the Christmas tree :D
There is not much to explain here because it's simply a composition of little statues, houses, moss and gravel. I used tin foil to make the river and the star. The paper I used this year has nothing to do with the village, I know, but I realized that there was the desert only after I bought it...this probably isn't as good as the nativity village I made last year but let me know what you think anyway! The last picture is the one I made last year. There is a pretty big mountain in it made with newspapers covered with moss. The snow is simply made with flour :)

    Linda Rose,

    Potrei semplicemente dire che sei un'artista, ma non mi dire tutta la verità.
    Sei un'artista delicata, orientato al dettaglio, di talento, molto, molto buon gusto.

    Oltre ad essere una un'artista completa, sei anche abbastanza generosa di condividere la loro arte con noi.

    Complimenti e grazie.

    It really is! That's what I love doing the most for Christmas and I always want to make it bigger but I can't seem to find bigger places!
