Back to blogging !!

Hi !!

Its been two years since I did my last blogspot...

Life had taken an unexpected turn In 2020. From Corona looming over  to my husband suffering heart attack,  these past two years has been quite rough. I was drained both emotionally & physically.. 

I think my drawings and my art work kept me sane during this difficult phase of life... 

But things are getting better now .. and I feel I am in the right state of mind to restart my blog...:))

Today I would like to share my madhubani painting of Maa Sharada Also known as Maa Saraswati , she represents knowledge , music & art.

Since this is a traditional art form I prefer  doing it freehand..So I haven't used any kind of scale or marker to draw the lines This is on A3 size Brustro Water colour paper and I have used acrylic colours to colour it.

Do drop in with your comments :)

Till next time take care :))

Crochet Doilies

Hi !!!!

I am coming after a long time :) Reason being I have been making these crochet doilies... I am kind of hooked to crocheting now. Earlier it was just an hobby which I could take over whenever I got bored with my paintings or just to rejuvenate my mind to over come the creative block ... 

But during these last few months I have taken up crochet very seriously.. I don't know why but after making few small doilies I started enjoying making them. I have learned to understand the graphs/diagrams of the design and its actually a huge accomplishment for me. 

Every pattern that I come across kind of becomes a challenge for me & until and unless I am able to comprehend it completely I go on trying  the same.

In this series I have made few doilies which I would like to share it with you:)

These are all made from Red Heart mercerised cotton ....

I hope you will like them.

Do leave your comments in the comment box..

Till  next time stay safe stay healthy:))

Rajasthani Miniature Paintings

Hi !!!

Hope all of you are doing well :)

Here in Delhi, thankfully its raining and the temperature has come down dramatically..

Today I am going to share with few paintings based on rajasthani folk art.. Even though madhubani is and has been very close to my heart, still I wanted to explore other traditional art forms. Earlier I had shared with you few Cheriyal Paintings, traditional art form of Telangana State.

In continuation to this today I am sharing with you Rajasthani Miniature Painting. This traditional art goes back to 15th century where it evolved in the Marwar -Mewar region. As the name suggests these are primarily done on small piece of cloth or paper with lot of detailing work. 

Taking inspiration from Pinterest I have tried to recreate few of them...

These paintings are done on A5 size Brustro watercolour paper.. I  feel that if I invest more time on this I will get better with time.:))

Do you agree with me ? Let me know your thoughts ... & do share about any new crafts you have been learning..:))

Till next time stay home stay safe :)))

Clay Fridge Magnets

Hi !!

Hope you all are doing well.... 

Today I am going to share with you my clay project... This has been on my mind for quite some time but was not getting to do it..:))

So this time  I tried no cooking cold porcelain clay recipe from youtube... On the surface clay looked okay & soft but when I mixed colours in it the clay started getting dried up quickly... So I made the designs first and then used acrylic colours to colour it...... Next time I think I will go with my old cooking recipe of clay making....This is how it looks

The base is wooden coaster which I have used to make magnets... Hope you will like it...

Till next time stay home and stay safe and be creative :))))
