A quick update........on what I have been doing :)

Hi !!!!

Its very chilly out here in Delhi. Even though I love winters very much.... but due to lethargy my creativity gets restricted.

This is my mandala drawing with sharpie & coloured pencils.

Do drop in with your comments on the same.

Phad Painting - My new found love


In my endeavour to try something new I have been experimenting with traditional Rajasthani Painting - Phad painting.

Phad Painting is a religious style scroll painting practised in Rajasthan. This kind of painting is done on a long piece of cloth or canvas known as phad. The narratives of the folk deities of Rajasthan especially Pabuji & Devnarayan are depicted on these phad. Scale of the figures depend on the social status of the character in the story. Also in this kind of painting the characters face each other. 

The cloth / phad is starched with rice water or flour and then it is rubbed with moonstone to impart stiffness to the same. After the rough sketch is drawn the artist fill it with colour moving from light colour to darker shade. Orange is used for body parts, for ornaments and general design on the clothing yellow colour is used, green for vegetation, brown for monuments, blue for water & red for clothing. Finally it is outlined with black colour that brings out the beauty & intricacies of the characters in the painting.

I have made these paintings on 10" x 12" sized canvas using acrylic colours First one is of Lord Ganesha & the second one is of Radha-Krishna. All these drawings are net inspired & am happy with the way it has come together.

I have tried to stay true to this traditional art as much as possible & I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. In case you have any suggestion on the same do let me know.

You can also follow me on Instagram for further updates.

Planning to explore Gond painting this week. Hopefully will be back soon with my new creation. 

Till then by & take care !!!:)

Stocking /Nylon flowers

Hi !!!!

Happy Friday to all of you :)

Today I am sharing with you nylon or stocking flower bouquet with you.

My student Sanvi has made this for her father as a "Welcome Gift". It was a sheer joy making this as I was doing this after a long long time & it is always inspiring to teach kids as they are so enthusiastic and eager to learn something new. 

I also did some bottle painting. This wine bottle has been lying with me for ages and I want to add some colour to it. So  I gave a base colour with glass colours and did dot painting with acrylics. This is how it looks now :) I am very happy with the outcome & I hope my hubby also feels the same .....

Do let me know what do you think of my projects :)

Till next time have a great weekend !!!:)

Glass Mural

Hi !!!

Happy Sunday to you all !!!!

Today I am going to share my glass mural which I completed few days back. 

This is a 2mm glass sized 12" x 12". I have used air dry clay and used acrylic colours  to paint the same. I got the design from Pinterest and have improvised a little bit. Next time I am going to try this on a bigger size :-)

Yesterday was Bhai Dooj and I was missing my brother very much. Its been nearly  two years since he left for his heavenly aboard but the pain doesn't seem to lessen. So to uplift my mood I made this colourful doodle...

I have used acrylic brush pens to colour the same.

That's all I have to share with you..... Thanks for stopping by:)

See you next time with some more crafty projets :-)

Misc. Activities

Hi !!!!

Happy Monday to u all !!!. Its  been more than a month since I last blogged. My broadband has been giving me lot of problems with their erratic connectivity issues. But finally they have been able to sort out the problem & since yesterday its been working fine. 

During this period I tried my hands in dot painting & recycled another bottle . This is how it looks ... Have used 0" & 2" size brush & acrylic paints. 

Have to apply a coat of varnish on the same. Somebody told me that glass surface needs separate kind of varnish but the one I have is for clay work or wooden surface. If anybody knows about glass varnish do let me know & from where I can get it ...??

I have also started to learn macrame. After watching few videos on the same I was able to make this small mobile pouch using simple square knots. 

For this I have used malai dori which I had got from Pradhan Stores long time back . Still need to affix front button.😊   Need to try out few more projects to get acquainted with this art form.

I would also like to share my young student's work. They are in 4th & 5th grade and they have done these beautiful Madhubani paintings. Makes me feel so proud 😊😊

Do share your views on the above. 

Till next time have a creative crafty week. πŸ‘

My Fusion Art

Hi !!!

Thanks for visiting and appreciating my previous blog post.

I simply love madhubani painting & even though I have been planning to learn new art forms ... I end up doing a madhubani motif / sketch :))

This time I have tried to create fusion between madhubani & doodling.

This painting is on A3 size cartridge sheet. This is a freehand sketching & I have used marker, acrylics & water colour pencils. 

My husband loved it very much & has given me an idea of making two more but with different central motif so that we have a set of three... But right now I just want to switch over to my crochet projects. This time I might surprise myself & complete my table cover .....

Till next time happy crafting !!!

There are lot of things going on in my mind. Have to complete few crochet projects which have been lying unattended for long.I also want to learn new art forms like dot painting, gond style painting....... List is endless..... but don't know when will I get the time to make a head start in this direction :)) I think I need to take the "Time Management" thing more seriously... maybe then I would be able to manage my never ending projects more efficiently..

Happy Basant Panchami !!!


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 (

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 :))
