I love painting especially Madhubani and sometime feel bad about not taking out time to paint more. Madhubanis are just so colorful and pretty and I did this quick one (Madhubani Ganesha) as an engagement gift for a friend's sister.
It came out real pretty and I promised myself to make them more often :D
Hope you liked it! What are you planning to take time out for from your busy schedule?
Even when my daughter will turn one in less than 15 days, I am nowhere close to completing my baby's first year scrapbook. But yes I am taking one step at a time and trying to do it by the end of this year (I have too many great photos of her to scrap and so little time :)).
I did manage to squeeze time to make this layout last week when I decided to work on my Craftslane product showcase for this week. Only because I had the perfect photo, perfect papers and perfect embellishments to put it together and the June sketch at C'est Magnifique was perfect for this layout too. I also wanted to show you that Craftslane products work equally well across different projects :)
By the way, C'est Magnifique also has an awesome Bits & Pieces giveaway open right now. It's super easy to enter and lot of yummies to be won. Just saying :)
I finally planned and conducted the very first "Handmade with Love" workshop here in Pune after being requested for it for quite some time now! And I got to tell you that it was whole lot of fun and I was only left thinking why the hell didn't I do it before :)
I have to say it's a lot of preparation and effort and having a baby to take care of doesn't make it any easy. But I am glad I pulled it off.
The group of ladies who came over were so enthusiastic and eager to learn and ofcourse so much fun to have over.
This 4-hour long workshop, turned into a 5 hour one and we were still struggling to finish everything. I guess we were just so busy having fun that we lost count of time :D
We did create some cool cards :)
And I wasn't the only one having fun and being excited, my husband joined in too :D
Hello and welcome to the first day of the Let's Get Trendy Now! 3 online workshop. We are talking about one of the hottest trend these days, NEON :)
I decided to alter a MDF monogram for my daughter's room(after I saw Y's gorgeous monogram) but was stumped with not having a lot of neon supplies in my stash but I had given into this neon trend sometime back by purchasing the Hero Arts Neon Pink ink pad and that saved my life.
I created my own background by rubbing the Hero Arts neon pink inkpad directly on to textured cardstock and then filled in the white spaces with a little bit of orange. And this little bit of orange adds so much to the background. Next I picked up some Pie Lane glitter and added lots of it and then little bits of this & that to finish it off.
As you all may know, my term at Lulupu ended this month and even though I had a great time working there and meeting new people, I am looking forward to some new wonderful opportunities and work ahead.
By the way, Lulupu already has some amazing new designers on the team and I hope you will keep visiting there :D
So now moving on to new opportunities and new work :)
I discovered this amazing crafts store called Craftslane and when they asked me to showcase some of their products here on my blog, I couldn't say no :)
I started by painting the box with a bamboo acrylic paint using one of the many flat brushes available in the Craftslane store.
And then I gave it a coat of glitter mod podge, haven't tried this stuff before but I have to say it's awesome. It leaves this sweet little glitter all over and is so easy to apply with the Craftslane foam brush.
