Smile... and the world smiles with you!!!

Thought of trying my hands at card making this time...
One reason was that I was trying to see how it would come out and then the second was.. I was curious about the ICR challenge this time. I thought why not to give it a try..
So here's what I did this time...
Made a simple card just saying that... " smile so that the world smiles with you " .. a clean and simple card..


Well, I do not have any embossing paper or embossing machines, I used my quilling stencil to make the embossing for the smiley's and another stencil for the line of flowers on the right !!! :)
Here's another click of the card :)


I also included a origami flower(pink one) here so that I can make my entry for a couple of crafts challenges!! Also a curled rose flower is added  :)

I have used the following items to make this card:
1) Lotus notes papers, Yellow and dark pink
2) Star shaped punch for making the punched decoration
3) Stencil for embossing the flowers and the smiley's circles.
4) Quilling tool to make the green flower as well as the embellishment on the top right of the sentiment
5) Origami paper flower (pink one)

I hope you liked my card.... so go ahead and smile.... for smile is very healing !!!! and it's the only curve which can make someone's day!!!:

Happy Smiling and crafting!!!!

Hook on to the Explosion Boxes.. this time it's a carousel one !!!

Hi Crafty People..

I'm certainly hooked on to making Explosion Boxes.. they are sooper dooper fun to make and there is such a lot of craziness in making them, a part of this craziness comes from the fact that, it's fun to watch the recipients reactions (of course, if you personally give it to them).. they are always amazing :)

This time around, I experimented by Making a carousel explosion box since I wanted to make one of each shape and size.

Here is what I made !!!
A Carousel Shaped Explosion Box with a Love is.. Card..

Gond painting

I have been eyeing the gond art from a very long time now, the only thing pulling me down from trying this amazing art form was time and now that I have ample of it, I loved making this beauty.

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.

Gond paintings are amazing to look at, truly intricate yet very very simple. The designs are basically evolved from everyday life yet the intricate dots, dashes and lines which fill up these everyday life inspired art form are amazing to fill up.

Here's what I made






Made on Stretched canvas with Acrylic paints.

I hope you all liked my humble attempt at making these. Custom orders for making these paintings are open. I will be happy to make one for you. For details,…
