Happy Basant Panchami !!!




Hi!!!!


A very Happy Basant Panchami to all of you. 





Today we worship Goddess Saraswati (goddess of knowledge, music, art & learning). Seated on white Lotus she symbolises light, knowledge & truth. Holding Veena(musical instrument) in her hand Goddess Saraswati reinforces the importance of music & rhythm in life. Her bahon (vehicle) is white swan which portrays purity and perfection and her ability to distinguish between good and evil.


Coming on to my WIPs I have just completed my needlework project.





Even though some of my stitches have not come out so clean but for the time being I am happy with the fact that I have finally finished the same. Here I have used long & short stitch, chain stitch, fishbone stitch & french knots. I have also added crochet pompom edging to the same.. courtesy Pinterest.


I am also working on this madhubani painting. Outlining is finished & now it needs colour. Hopefully I will share the complete  painting in my next blogpost.







Do let me know how it looks ??????? 


Take care and have a great week ahead :))

My Embroidery Work...





Hello !!!


I always refrain myself from doing needlework project simply because I find it very tedious & time consuming. Even though I did some embroidery work as a souvenir for my friends living abroad, but it is not my favourite subject. This year I have decided to brush up my embroidery skills & have started with this small cover.

My embroidery stash is quite limited so I am trying to manage with whatever colours I have :))










You can see I have used various shades of brown, my leaves are multicoloured green, blue, olive green...... You can see as I am going further the size of my flowers are becoming smaller (meaning I am getting impatient:-)) But I am persistent & hopefully would be able to complete this ..

Also made this wall hanging for my son's school project from waste CDs. 





I covered the CD with jute thread & painted it yellow as it is their class theme. After that I attached mirrors in the centre & stones in the corner and finally finished it by attaching off white satin ribbon.


Do let me know how these look ????

Till next time have a creative week :))

Hello 2017 !!!



Hello & A  Very Happy New Year to all my blogger friends!!:)

I hope this New Year brings in Happiness & Good Health for all.:))

2016 didn't end on a good note for me, as there was another death in my family:(. And I was not able to concentrate much on my wips.

I have just completed my fabric paintings on cushion cover which I started in Nov'16 . For details plz visit ( http://luvforcrafts.blogspot.in/2016/11/fabric-painting.html).









I also tried liquid embroidery to add a bit of variety. This pattern is internet inspired & still needs drying.





This is again liquid embroidery in geometrical pattern with decorative stones.




I also completed my Madhubani painting of Goddess Lakshmi Ji . I added few warli figures in the corner to give a fusion effect.






Doodling is my new passion these days. So whenever I have some time I try to practise the same. These are few samplers that I have tried :)


   
                     


What do you think ???????  Do get back with your feedback.

Till next time T.A.T.A & take care :))

Fabric Painting



Hi !!!!


A lot has been happening since I did my last blog post. Even though I have been posting regular updates on my fb page & Instagram, blogging seems to have lagged behind.

I did explore fabric painting, but the outcome unfortunately was not very satisfying. This is how it looks.As you can see the painting doesn't have a smooth finish.
















This is because the cushion cover cloth is not purely cotton but a mix of silk & cotton  & when I started to paint,  the cloth absorbed the paint , consequently  I had to put 2-3 coats.  This made the whole process quite tedious and frustrating. Wrong assessment on my part :) I should have done a little test trial,but now I can't undo it, & I have to paint the remaining four covers... Will update you in my next blog post.

These are few watercolour sketches which I practised (courtesy youtube). Hope you will like them 








 Currently I am working on this Madhubani drawing of Goddess Lakshmi.......





Till next time enjoy & have a crafty weekend:))
