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.

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.
