Look what I found while browsing through my old sketch books. Nearly four years back, I copied this from a book in the library (that couldnt be issued ). The amateurish celerity in the strokes interspersed with minimal shading,is too obvious.
It is one of my favourites, for its simplicity and depth. I hope you like it too. You can leave a message in the comment box if you have any request.

I pull a dandelion from the weeds.
I close my eyes, thinking of my needs,
As I blow away those tiny little seeds.“ –KayeCee
After being MIA for a few days, I am back with another art piece. This is my first with acrylic paints, a simple composition of one of my favourite things, Dandelions!!
Do tell me if you like it ? I would appreciate your suggestions as its my first acrylic painting. And keep following the blog for interesting stuff.
Hey fellow Blogspherites , and those passing by our galaxy
Nothing is more liberating than having a hobby you absolutely adore. For me, it will always be drawing and crafting. This is a recent work, an autumn landscape in dry pastels.
Hope you like it. Feel free to give your comments. I’d be glad to hear from you.
I have been inactive in blogsphere for quite some time now. Thanks to the monumental work-load that comes along with PG. My peaceful routine was viciously contorted, leaving the creative corner of my mind, cluttered and confused. After duelling with the urge to craft and the yearning to write,for nearly a month….I feel happy to bring another CIY, a bottle craft which was put together long back. Its a stand for your bangles and hairbands.
My previous CIY explained how to decorate a glass bottle with thread. For a quick look at the steps, click here.
In this CIY, you need the same technique of thread work on the neck of glass bottle.
After decorating the neck and a little collar with thread, write something nice, with acrylic colours.
You can keep bangles as shown in the picture. and haibands like this.
That’s all. Its so convenient and quick to make, and helps to organize a number of things. Do try this CIY and send me the pics. I would love to hear from you.
Sorry for disappearing again..I was contemplating the next CIY. Actually, I was caught up in the ebb and flow of a postgraduate student’s life, with as series of mind-racking deadlines. Anyway, I am finally here purely because of my love for blogging. I couldnt stay away for long.
So, today’s CIY is a pretty lantern made out of glass bottle. You can even use small glass jars,mason jars etc.
What do we need?;
Glass bottle Paints and brush Fabric glue Thread Glass liner (not in the pic :P)
Step1: Apply glue on the neck of the bottle and start winding the thread around it.
Step2 : Follow the same step on the bottom of the bottle.
Step3 : Paint a 1/2 inch wide space next to the threaded portion, in any colour you like. And draw abstract pattern with black glass liner. You can use any other colour liner,if you like.
Step4: Use it as a lantern, as shown here. You can make multiple lanterns in different colours and keep them in a corner and let the light shine through.
- You can decorate the bottle using clay, or may even wind the thread all over it.
- Use different colours and media: glass , fabric or spray paints.
- Write quotations on bigger bottles and use as vase.
- Use glass liners in metallic colours: gold, silver and bronze to give a 3d effect to the lantern.
Do try this and give your feedback. And share it if you like it.
Hey there blogspherites..
Hope you’re doing great. I wanna share something very special. You remember we gave a funky makeover to old bangles . One of my dear friends tried this at home and mailed her pictures to me. I must say whatever she did to them old and boring bangles, is just amazing. I couldnt help sharing it with you all.
Its awesome right!!! Even you should try. Its very easy, quick and fun to do.
