Finally ... I started it.. :)

Hi Friends...

I'm sure you  must be surprised to see the topic of this post... surprised as I am..
finally.. after much coaxing .. I finally decided to make a scrapbook album for myself :)
Actually.. I had been wanting to do this from a long long time.. Since April .. but I coudnt bring the right kind of thoughts I wanted in my Album.. but now I have...

I have always loved Vector shapes for anything and drawing them used to be biggest hobby in my College.. you might want to check my notebooks.. not a page corner without a drawing there was... Somehow When I came across the Lulupu's challenge for this month for making a layout.. I had to get started and finally I decided on making something handmade in my album..
So here's what I made with a Gel pen and then colored it off. Coloring is something I had not tried before in these kinds of drawings, but then I didn't wanted the usual black color to dominate like I had always kept my earlier drawings :)

This is the scrapbook page I created.
My Fav month for 2012 was the starting month of the Year.. January... for I got married on 15th Jan.. to someone who is soo special and is my life.... :)

Hence I wanted my album to be very special one too :)

 Here's a closeup of the Paisley design that I have made :) It's done first with a Black Gel pen and then more black was added around to make the design thicker. After that the colors were filled in.

Here's a complete view of the page that I made :)

Hope you all liked it... linking it to the Lulupu's challenge.

  1. For the first time I am hearing the word "Paisley design". Very beautiful layout. How long did it take to make that design ?

    1. Hey Gowri :)

      yeah, Paisley (also called Mango pattern) is pretty common, it's been in Indian tradition for long.. fabrics, mehendi designs.... :)
      Thanks for admiring.. well, I drew this kind of drawing almost after 6-7 years... it took me about 2 hours to make it off... I'm gonna practice more of this.. maybe the next time the time will be 1 hour..

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Pretty lovely creation.


  3. Wow now that is amazing!!! Can't believe you created the entire pattern yourself. You are super talented!
