Am back with yet another paper cut related post. This time for Project ArSa. This is the second activity of our project and a simple one just yet.
I love skylines of various mega cities/metros. But the one I love the most is the New York skyline (would love to do a nice paper cut of it some day). One of Aarthi‘s friend was to relocate to India from Kuwait and she wanted to present her with a memorable gift for the times spent together in Kuwait. She came up with a Kuwait Skyline idea and decided to do a paper cut of the same.
Hope everyone is having a great summer. With activities for everyone around, I and my friend, Aarthi (do check her blog) have decided to go in for a series of activities, pertaining to arts and crafts, for ourselves over the next few months. It would be a weekly venture and would include various art forms which she/I/both haven’t taken up/tried.
This is something close to us. Living in different countries and not being able to get together to have our own arts and crafts venture, I guess this is the closest we could get as of now. It feels like a good start and I sure am looking forward for every moment of it. And so, then came the urge to have a name for this pet project of ours. We have called it – Project ArSa (with #projectArSa going with all the posts related to it).
This happens to be one of the long pending posts that needed to be penned down.
2015 Valentines was a nice surprise for the Husband. He was very impressed and quite amused. I wanted to do the same for 2016 too. Quilling was not an option as I wasn’t keen with the repetitive form. It was that time of my life where Paper Cut art form was my love (not first though 😉 ) and so decided to go with it.
I am back with a completely different (from my regular ones) art/craft form – Embroidery! I have been fascinated by embroidery since my childhood. I have seen them, most of which were handmade by my grand mother, on the many pillow covers around the house .
In school, I got to dabble with embroidery during the art class and finally embroidered a pillow cover all by myself. I lost interest in it as I progressed through the higher grades at school with subjects taking the precedence and importance over arts and crafts. And so embroidery slowly faded out of my mind.
I am back after, what I feel is, eternity with a “Throwback Thursday” post being a nice opportunity to get back to the blogging world.
Valentine’s Day must bring loved experiences to many of you out there. I believe that every day is special and every moment is special, cherished and loved like there is no tomorrow. Never did I even think that this day would give me the joy that I have experienced in the recent past. But I guess this day had to be special for me and for my better half.
Feb 14, 2015 was our first Valentine’s day after marriage and I thought that there should be something special done for him. I wasn’t sure what to do and was dabbling with many ideas. I was into quilling at that point in time and had also started doing a little bit of Zentangle and Zentangle inspired art. The first thought that came to mind while looking out was – I should combine the two forms in some way. How – was a question that needed an answer then.
