Canvas Painting- Spring

After a really long spell of dreary winter, I am all ready for spring....
Spring has always been one of my favorite seasons....
The burst of colors all around me, makes me feel really happy....
I am truly blessed to be able to enjoy the magnificence and the 
ethereal beauty of the blossoms.....
And what better way to see it everyday than a painting!
This painting is one of my favorites, as I have gone completely out 
of my comfort zone while painting this....
I have used many different self- taught techniques in this one for 
the first time, and they turned out surprisingly well....
Well, here's the center of attention....My canvas Painting- "Spring"


Canvas Painting- "Spring"
I have used acrylics on a 16 X 20 pre-stretched canvas...
It is kind of a 3D painting with impasto effects.....
The sides are painted and it is ready to hang.....

Let me show you some close-ups

Gingerbread House

Hi....
Hope you had very happy holidays!!!
We had so much fun during the last two weeks!!!!
We (me and my sonny boy) made this gingerbread house together....
I got a DIY kit from Michaels and we got to it immediately...
Me and my li'll one had a blast making it!!
We made a house with two different roofs...We ran out of green fondant while doing one side ;)
Guess where it went.....
And we ate so much icing too while making it...lol...
Here are the pictures for you to share our fun and joy.....

So, getting back to the basics.....
This was a beer bottle, that I painted gold......

I also embellished the design a bit, with 3D Outliners (puffy paint)......

DIY Fluffy (Frosty)- The Snowman

There can't be winter decoration without our beloved Frosty the Snowman....Right???
Here's my version of him.....
I made this "Fluffy" Frosty with my son for his school project......
Snowman
We made this one out of Shaving cream and Elmer's Glue (Fevicol can do too)......
Saw it initially at Kraftykid .....
I made mine a little differently.....
I chose a Blue construction paper as a base.....
Then I pasted a white Snowman paper outline on the blue paper to make it easy 
for my son.....
Then we just used a candy stick to spread the shaving cream and Elmer's glue 
mixture on the white cutout till we covered it completely.....
We also spread some mixture along the bottom of the paper.....
When the mixture was still wet, we inserted the hat and a nose made out 
of construction paper........
We also made a smile from peppercorns....... :)
We added some shiny buttons on the front and a patterned paper scarf........
We also added googly eyes....my son's favorite!!!
The picture of the wet snowman looked like this.....it looks really uneven....
when you are making this, remember to add the scarf in reverse, as we will bend it forward to make the scarf.....

Fluffy Frosty

As it dried, we were able to see a smooth form to the structure.....
When it dried completely (overnight drying required), we glued the scarf 
together.....I cut a little fringe at the edge of the scarf......
Finally, my son drew some snowflakes and white dots on the blue paper 
to show snowfall........
We loved the overall effect of our "Fluffy"- The Snowman........
My son was so proud to take this to school........
His joy made me so happy :D

Fluffy- The Snowman

Hope you enjoyed the post.....
The links in the post above will take you to the sites that sell those products....
Feel free to browse through those :)
And, Have fun making your own "Fluffy"......Enjoy the winter!!!

Krishna- Bejeweled Artwork

Hello.....
Here, I have a Bejeweled Art done on Krishna....the most loved Indian god....
This type of art is also known as "Shringar Art" in India.....
"Shringar" literally means "Make- up and Jewelry Adornment".
I have used a 16 x 20 Poster print of Krishna and used mixed media for this artwork....
I have individually stuck each and every bead and rhinestone with my own hands....
The "Murli" or the "Flute" is hand- moulded too......
The peacock feather on the crown is real too.....
This is completely a 3D artwork....

Krishna




This is how, the Framed Artwork looks......

This is the close-up of the crown for you.....

Shringar Artwork- Krishna

It took me a month (3 hrs/day) to finish this artwork......
It was a painstaking job, but the hard work did finally pay.....
The final result blew my brains away.....
It was beyond my own expectations.......
I was making this artwork for my sister's house-warming.....
She loved it so much that it is now, the Focal Wall art in 
her Living room feature wall.....

Canvas Painting - Twisters

Hello there.....
I am back after a certain gap....A lot of things kept me busy for quite some time....
I was making some or the other thing, but just wasn't finding the time to put anything
up on the blog.......Thanks for coming to check though :)
Today, I have put up pictures of these three mini canvas paintings I made recently.....
I call them 'Twisters'.......
The name kinda says it all here.....

Twisters

I have used 3 canvases of 6' X 6' each......
Here are the individual close-ups.......
As you can see here, the striations are raised, thus giving the painting its unique texture.....

The photos don't really do much justice to this beautiful raised effect though....

DIY Rose Branches

Roses are a crafters favorite!!!!
And I am no exception to that....
I made this Rose Branch Decorative Piece at a very low price :)
Let me tell you how.....

Rose Branches

I collected some branches that fell from a tree outside my house.....
The photo shows only two but there were some more....

Branches

I chose the best of the branches and got out my ammunition.....a spray can!!



I spray painted the branches gold.......ohh I love shiny, blingy stuff!!!
I loved the way they turned out :)

Gold Painted branches

When the branches were drying, I made some paper roses of different sizes....
Here they are!!!


Paper Roses

You can use ready artificial / silk flowers like these too....



I stuck the roses randomly on the branches with a hot glue gun....



Then, I took a glass vase and filled it with glass fillers for the base.....



Finally, I arranged the branches together in the vase....
This is how the final product looks....
It gives a very chic look to the house at a very minimal cost....

This is a close up of a rose stuck on the branch.....

DIY Halloween Pumpkin Decoration

Hi and welcome to my post on Halloween Pumpkin Decoration....
My son had to take a decorated pumpkin in his school....
So we made this pumpkin....
However, Hurricane Sandy ruined our plans and our poor pumpkin had to stay home :(


Halloween Pumpkin Decoration

For making this, we chose a foam pumpkin instead of a real one as it was easy for my son to handle...
My son decided to go with a skull face for pumpkin.....so, I painted a skull.....
My son also wanted the scary triangle eyes for the skull....
According to him, the skull looks more spooky with these eyes!!
Then we glued a rubber bat, rat and a spider for a more spooky appearance....
Last but not the least, we carved the bottom and fixed a LED candle to give our pumpkin an eerie flickering glow!!!



My son was pretty excited with the final outcome and he couldn't wait to show it to his fellow kindergarteners!!!!
Hope you liked it too....

DIY Halloween Welcome Sign


Hi......
I know, this post is coming after a looong time.....
But now its Halloween :)) and I am so excited!!!
To welcome Halloween, I made this "Welcome Sign" as a start to mark the decorations...

Halloween Welcome Sign

 I started with the leaves first....
I cut green handmade paper in the following manner......



Then I folded over the paper cutting, in the centre......
Also, I curled the long curvy strips to resemble the tendrils......
Then I scored the leaves from the back to show the veins......
It looked like in the picture below......



I kept this aside and started with the pumpkin.....
I cut a pumpkin shape from orange handmade paper....


Then I scored it from behind to show the ridges......
It looked something like this......


 I colored the pumpkin shape to resemble a real pumpkin......



After I was done coloring, I attached the stem part to the top of the pumpkin with glue.....



But, it was not over yet......
I painted the word 'WELCOME' along the centre of the pumpkin.....



After it all dried up, I glued a thin floral wire on the stem to hang......
The fruit of my labor ;) hangs on my door welcoming one and all.....


I am all geared up for Halloween, and will keep you posted on my further decorations.....
Please do comment to let me know of your opinion........
Thanks for visiting and Happy Halloween!!!
