Water Color Painting

Water Color Painting

 
I came across this water color painting challenge in http://lulupu.blogspot.in/2015/04/challenge48-water-colors.html. It set me thinking, it's almost ages I took up my paint brush for water colors. There are very fond memories I have with water colors, so many competitions I participated as kid, the drawing classes and many more..........
So I decided I should give it a shot again and believe me it made me so happy. Below is the output














I am participating in Lulupu Challenge #48

Quilled Earring

Quilled Earring

 
I have been very fascinated by quilling since the time I first came to know about it around 1.5 years back. I tried my hand and found it very simple and interesting. I tried different patterns of flowers using quilling , always searched on net on different varieties we can make. I was somehow restricted to just trying new techniques but did not try to come up with finished product. Finally decided to use my skill to make a set of earring :)
 
For any one who wants to learn quilling there are so many sites, videos available you can just refer them and understand the process. I will share some of favorites too. 
 
This I what I made....................
 
When I started working on it I had a different design in mind. Basically a flower shaped earring. But after I was done with the petals I did not feel like making that shape. I tried some different patterns which I can make with those tear-drop shape
 


I personally liked the second one but felt was too long for my taste. So went with the first one. So below is the product.
 
 
 
 
After finishing this I was left with two more tear-shaped petals, since I was planning for a flower shape I had made 5 petals each. So decided to go ahead and make another pair of earrings :)
