I am back!!! A good two month break for festivities and quality family time – a refreshing one indeed. And what better way to be back than take up the INKTOBER challenge.
Yes! I am joining the bandwagon for the INKTOBER 2017 challenge set up by Jake Parker. Got to know of the challenge just a few days ago and decided to take it up in order to brush off the laziness and hangover of the break and get back to drawing. And the other part of the challenge is that I have not drawn with ink as yet and this would be my first time with it. Excited!
Here’s a nice little throwback post for a laid back Sunday morning.
Quilling is something I have been doing for a while now and if you are a Quiller too, you surely must have heard about or seen the works of Manuela Koosch – an amazing Quiller who is inspired by nature.
Project ArSa is back this time with a throwback post. As I was traveling and will be traveling again soon, Aarthi and I decided to show you all something that we had done together previously.
Two Christmas ago, as a part of the Paper Cutting group on Facebook, Agnisha Ghosh had given all the members of the group a template of Christmas tree to quill with. During that time, both (Aarthi and myself) were not doing justice to our creative juices. And to give it a start, we decided to do the quilling of the Christmas tree.
This week Project ArSa is back on track with our Wednesday posts and with my new found love for Origami 🙂 .
The last Origami which we had done, Kusudama Flower, was modular (where many similar shaped paper models are combined together to form a single model). I was looking out for doing something with just a single sheet of paper. Aarthi’s attempt at the Nautilus Shell origami struck me amidst my travel packing and we decided to go ahead with it (for the lack of time to do anything new).
We are a little late this week due to our personal commitments. It is better late than never! So here goes ArSa’s activity of the week.
Aarthi and I seem to love our paper cuts so much, that we are back again with a paper cut, but with a slight improvement (I should say!?! 😉 ) – paper cut with infills.
We are back with a nice and simple activity this week – Origami. Project ArSa is slowly but nicely shaping up and we had to start doing different things. And so, Aarthi and I decided to go with the Kusudama Flower for this week.
Origami to me was paper boats and planes during my childhood. Beyond that I never explored the art of paper folding, though it looked very interesting whenever I saw it (I guess it was my sheer laziness to cut a paper into square and proceed 😀 ) Later there was something I did in Origami (I faintly remember doing it) but have no clue about it. And then it was lost. On the contrary, Aarthi loves it and I remember her fiddling with paper during college 😉
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 😉
