Kuwait Skyline Paper Cut

Hello all,

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.

Hearts Themed Paper Cut

Hello all,

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).

Valentines Day 2016

Hallo again,

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.

Paper Embroidery

Hello hello,

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.

Valentine’s Day 2015

Hello,

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.
