Bottle Art

Feeling very gloomy today evening as I am upset for tomorrow, MONDAY.
Ha. Well just take a look at the Bottle Painting. Initially I wanted to use only two colours but landed up with 5 colours. Life is full of colour so .....whatever.
I have used Acrylic colors, 0 brush and ofcourse silver glitters. The important thing to note is the thinner the brush you use the better the effect. I have used 0 brush you can use upto 000.
This was my First work on bottle. It was experiment kind of thing anyways. One point to note that I painted entire bottle with black colour and then I started my design on it.
So Happy ending Sunday!! Be Ready for work for Monday!!
Bye! Cheers!!!! Have Great Week days a head!!!!!

Wire Tree with Beaded Fruit

It deadly hot weather over here. Feeling like not doing anything and just sit under the fan. The summer in Gujarat is intolerable with water crises.
Hi friends this is alka and I am back with my new project. Golden Tree. This project is very easy to make. Its all to do with the twisting of wire. You can use any colour ofcourse. I chose to use gold, my Fav. Ha Ha.
You just need.
1. Moti / Beads
2. Golden Wire / (any colour if it is available in your locality)
3. Golden Leaves / Again any colour.
4. Soft clay / Vessel to put the tree for support.
The method is very simple. You have to take the tip end. Pour from the end one bead (here you can follow 2 steps)
From the tip bring to the middle of the wire and start twisting. Pack one bead. Again pour one more bead, bring the same to the middle and twist. In one wire you can use 6beads for 25cm length.
Step 2.
You start twisting from the end and carry on until the wire exhausted.
Mine is little thick. I have 20 branches. If the tree is very thick around 25 such branches or more it can stand without support. So what I mean to say is the thicker the tree, the beautiful is the outcome.
I have some step by step photos for your to see.
Happy Weekend!!

New Avtar of my ring box

Dear All,

This is the first time in my blogging history that I have been posting for 3 consecutive days!!Hurray!!My dream of posting frequently came true. Well I was all my hard work that I sat 5hrs continuously  last Sunday and completed 3 projects in one go.

So this one is something unique. I bought this Ring box or you may name it as jewellery box from Kolkatta. I really wanted to do something like this. This is the best lace and Ribbon that I could get from local market, and if you know anyone who is selling laces please do mail me.

Items Used: -

1. Big plastic stones 2 colors used here.
2. Glitter valvet lace
3. Crochet cotton lace
4. Glue Gun
5 A pair of scissor.

This is very easy to make and also one point to be noted it can be used for school project for children above 14. Very easy to make just you have to use your imagination. As you can see in the picture i wanted to use few of the mix match ribbon but wasn't useful. I am short of ribbon and want to stock more.

Please enjoy the below photos.

Friends thank you for stopping by. Cheers! 
Have a lovely day!!!

Recycled Match box

Hi! Happy Thursday to all my friends. 

I have made a beautiful piece from match box. Oops! i forgot to take the pix of match box.
Well, it happens. There are so many thing around, I cannot work without messing my things. 

If you see th picture I have used 3 match box, if you want more drawers then you can add on and want only 2 or 1 you can also do with it. This is also a simple and easy to make. 

What all you need: 

1. Match box any numbers (below is 3)
2. Glue adhersive ofcourse
3. Handmade papers
4. Paper stock
5. Quilling for emblishment
6. Beads/Pearl /crystal stickter
7. Cotton thread (You can use satin ribbon as well)
8. Die cut bird and house flowers and emblishments

I have used layers in between the boxes. The mistake i have made is i have not used a thick layer, the result two drawer clashes when open. So warning you have to be careful using a very thick layer  between the match box may be 1/2 inch or bit more. Because of all this I had to keep backside open as pulling out the drawer was difficult, its not that smooth. So It is always good if you keep some space between the boxes.

The lesson learnt.....

I have used cotton red thread to pull the drawer, you can use satin ribbon also. Also, I have covered inside the box with pattern paper. outside its handmade paper yellow one. You can use pattern paper as well.

This one what I have created you can change as per you style.
