New Year card

Hi Friends...

Made a HNY card for Indira - artysorts mega celebration -challenge2 ....selected a very simple henna design from my henna collection book..I draw the design on vellum paper using white pencil ( glass marker)and colored it at the back with color pencils..Made four similar designs and cut them and glued it on a purple color sheet which is then mounted on card base....Details are given around the designs using white pen..


The sentiment is handwritten on a piece of vellum and mounted it on silver tape...hope my blogger friend likes it....

Thank you so much for stopping by...Wishing all my friends a Very Very Happy New Year...

Hi Friends..

I was tagged by a multi talented crafter Lavina of life’s little treasures…She is an amazing crafter and a very good cook too…Her blog is full of yummy recipes, crafts with her little one, Quilling...Do visit her blog ..... 

1.     What am I working on?
Currently working on school projects for my kids , pencil drawings and a few recycling…

 2.    How does my work differ from others of its genre?
      I just want it to be simple.....

3.    Why do I write/create what I do?
Creating or even thinking of creating something makes me happy and I love to be happy always..I tried my hands on painting, origami, sewing, kolam, embroidery, crochet and now to paper crafts..

Pressure cooker for fancy dress for my son
4.    How does your writing/creating process work?

  It usually begins with an inspiration and there are sometimes which end up completely deviating from it..
