Fun MDF Hangers from Craftslane!

Wondering what happened to my Craftslane inspiration post?? Ohh well long story!

So I have had this super cute and fun MDF hanger from Craftslane for a while now and I have been meaning to finish it and post it here for the longest time but whenever I get around to finishing it, my daughter grabs it and starts painting it and spoils whatever I had with it in the first place :)

Needless to say, she loves this hanger a little too much :) So since no matter how hard I tried I wasn't really able to do what I had planned with it, courtesy my little one, I thought I will show you how it looks like right about now :)

So the first time I took it out and decided on painting it with bright colors, Aadya decided to do this :)


I left it like this for a while and started thinking of what to do now. To take away the distraction Aadya's painting created, I thought I will give it some texture with tissue papers and mod podge.

And so one day when the little girl was sleeping, I made it look something like this.


I gave one coat of blue acrylic paint and before I could finish the second one, Aadya was up. So you can see a few uneven paint areas in the picture above.

Today, when I took it out again to finish, here's what happened :)



And well...... looks like it is going to get a red coat of paint on it now :)

I am not sure, how and when I will be able to finish working on it but without a doubt it has been the cutest project ever :)

Not only are these hangers fun, I think they will be of great utility in your little one's almirah. And I am pretty sure, kids are gonna love it :)

Here is the link to all the different hangers available at Craftslane. Make your pick, or buy them all!

Have a great weekend my friends!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
