Traveling through the alleys and crossroads in my mind, I'm trying to learn my soul, find answers.
While I stand here , I am unleashed of all the tensions
inside and outside me.
Life is just the way it is...Happy, Beautiful yet mysterious.
This is Me: My Space , My cup of Soul!
Oscar Wilde said, "No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist"
Oh ,What truth did this great man speak! Creativity needs an illusionistic and an experimental mind. A mind that can see beyond the regularities and similarities between the colossal things around us. Ahem, just like how you see a big fat chicken and imagine a dish of hot & steamy chicken tikka masala crossing the road..yeah..that's also the work of a ingenious brain.
Everyone is creative in their own way. Small children are creative in ways that we adults cannot imagine. An unperturbed mind of a child is so full of ideas and imagination that it could lift a big barrel of water with its weight, shoot it in the crisp air and pour it down in its rainbow colors of rain even shying away the rain gods. Observe an ant, and you will see how creative it is in kidnapping those small droppings of food in the kitchen to its ant haven.
The twig craft??
O.K let's come to this.
Getting natural elements into the interior of a house gives a splendid and earthly look.
I tried to inculcate a lot if twigs into crafting.
Here are the things that I did.
A swarm of tiny twigs with woolen Pom Poms
in a vase that looks like , ....I guess a duck!
Makes a good centerpiece for a table.
A hanging wall art made with twigs, leftover mount boards of used photo frames and lace.
Another hanging wall art made with twigs and woolen. I then painted the silhouette of birds perched on it.
Branches of a tree festooned with beads adorned the huge vases.
Note: No tree or plant was harmed or broken or felled during the making of these crafts. And if you wanna try these crafts, please do wash the twigs and stuff ,with water and drying it before working on them.
Ok, all you ladybugs, before I hit the trundle and snore to wake up my neighbors, wish me goodnight!
Hello there, all you lovely people. I know I know , it's been such a loooooooong time that you almost forgot this small space of mine on the internet, right?
'twas a big change in our lives. We moved back to india, getting settled here, setting up the house, school, office, work , that and this, and oh you know how it is when we have to accommodate such a big change.
So that was all going on and so this past year I was inactive in here.
Its joke time;
Hubby while watching cricket :yes its a six
My son: Appa not six,its seven;)
Now lets do a tiny planter. I'm in really love with those tiny white planter which succulents available in the market these days. So I thought of making one in my own style.
What u need:
Rope or any thicker thread of your choice
Yellow and green felt clothes / artificial flowers
Sand/ pebbles to fill in the container
Any small container or an old box
Glue , scissor
I had this small thing that looks like a container. It's about the height of my index finger.
Apply fevicol or any glue you have and start applying it from the bottom and simultaneously take a rope and start taping it from bottom up until you cover the whole container.
Next, time to make few felt flowers. I just made 3 of them .
Like see in these pics above, you have to make a small circle on a thick paper or cardboard and put the string around it, wrap green felt on string for the stem.
Cut a long yellow felt ribbon, make tiny cuts along its length for the petals or just leave it plain and just roll it and paste it on one side of the cardboard. Cover the other exposed side of cardboard(that's the behind of flower with felt).
Now all you have to do is fill the container with pebbles or sand, place the felt flowers in it. I also placed tiny store bought white flowers ( or make your own ) along with it.
Now you can place it on your window sill like me or put it wherever , whatever place you want to adorn it with.
