Michael Jackson Paper Cut

Hey there,

I and Aarthi seem to love paper cuts 😉 (reason being she is having a mini vacation for Ramadaan and would not be able to get a new activity done). And hence this week’s activity for Project ArSa is yet again a paper cut.

Never asked if she is a fan of MJ, but she did design a nice Michael Jackson paper cut a year or two ago. Though it was given to me for a test cut at that time, I could not do it and she had gone ahead with the main paper cut.  We decided to go ahead with it as I had time for it now and she, as said, is vacationing 😉

Quilled Card – Congrats

Hey there,

It’s time to go back in time to see one of the other projects/activities I have done over the years – a nice flashback post. This one is a Quilled card done three years back (which I had totally forgot about – caught hold of it while trying to see what’s in the table drawer).

Husband was inspired to take up learning German after he met me. He decided to take the first level classes and exactly three years ago, he had his exams. He does get super tensed (with occasional irritation and silence intermittently) when exams are in the vicinity. And it continues till the results are out and he is satisfied with the scores.

Butterfly Paper Embroidery

Hello there,

Project ArSa with Aarthi is back this week with a nice little paper embroidered card. It had been a long time since I had done one (that was almost 4 years ago) and Aarthi too had not tried her hands at this. Hence we took this one up as the activity of the week.

In my previous post on Paper Embroidery, I have provided a link from where I taught myself this craft form. I was hunting for a nice picture to embroider, when we decided to take up the butterfly design from the same tutorial.

Quilled Hearts Mosaic

Hello,

Good to see you all in yet another Project ArSa post. And this time it is back to quilling :).

You might have read my posts regarding my first and second anniversary gifts. For the third anniversary, I was thinking as to what I should do, when my friend Aarthi suggested that I convert my Valentine’s Day gift to my anniversary gift. The Valentine’s Day was a three heart mosaic type quilled piece. I liked her idea and decided to go for it (having another gift in mind for the V Day, which has not been started till date 😉 ).

Elephant Half Tone Paper Cut

Hello there,

Project ArSa is picking up and I am back again with my favourite paper cut – the half tone.

It was more than one and a half years since I had done the last half tone cut and was wondering what and when next would I do it. Project ArSa paved the way for it and I decided to take up designing one for us.

Second Anniversary Gift

Hello all,

Good to see you all again in yet another paper cut art post. This one is the most special among all the paper cuts that I have done so far.

Like I had said in one of my earlier post, half tone paper cuts were something I had been dying to do since I got to know of them. While I was doing some small designs and trials of the same, our second wedding anniversary was fast approaching and left me thinking as to what I would do this year. Paper cuts being the art form that I was doing then, I decided to do a half tone paper cut of ours.
