Inspiration from Nature



Hello there...today's inspiration comes from nature. Some acorns colored with crimson red paint, bringing beauty of nature to my computer table these days. I saw some lovely ideas of painted bottles on pinterest. I painted mine with cool blue color. Added some natural beauty of acorns and I got this lovely piece for my table...

This is something I did for fun two days back...attached ear buds to the branches using flower tape and result was not bad I would say...


Looking pretty isn't it?

resting now on my bathroom counter with pink paper rose..


Stay creative ! Have a lovely weekend every one...

Butterflies & Mushrooms

Hi there...today I have come with a simple and beautiful idea. After my experiment with salt dough few month back, I got crayola clay from a craft store. I started the work thinking that I would make a bigger piece of Maa Durga this time but ended up making cute tiny mushrooms, birdies and other trinkets. Later, I saw this delightful project in a blog. I really like the simplicity of it so I made these beautiful butterfly pieces using crayola clay as base. With some branches and butterfly cut outs the project was done. This project is real simple. You can go to this link to see the inspiration behind this project. Here is my version of it. Hope you like it.



Cute mushroom...I painted them with acrylic color..







base is made crayola clay, dented with a straw to give it a nice texture....twigs are inserted on it.. after 2-3 days it turned solid (i used air dry clay) and twigs were fixed on the base...



some butterfly prints glued to it and job done!



Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Magic of Red


Would it be wrong if I call them red beauties? Lovely red mixed with little dash of black.. that's the magic of poppies. Beauty of flowers is magical even if it is made with paper. That's what I did again... yep I made more flowers using party streamers and craft paper. Hope you are not getting tired of seeing more flowery post here. So here comes the first project of this year...lovely poppies in a recycled holder.

Holder is made with cardboard & toilet roll tubes and painted with grey color.


Flowers are neatly arranged by my little one as you can see here....who thinks he should be doing everything that his mother says No to.


And little goodies that belong to his sister got their right place. Love that cute turtle erasers.

Have a nice weekend everyone, do checkout my post next week. It won't be flowers again I promise :)
