I had a lot of fun with these rush order Diwali Cards! I used ink and acrylic paint to make these 5×7 mini works of art :)
This past week, I got engaged! Though I didn’t plan the event, I got to pick out decorations, design invitations, arrange for hand designed table numbers, and wrap return gifts. Basically, all the fun stuff!
I drew a motif using my .3 mm Stabilo Pen, converted it into a Vector Image, and used that as the theme for this event. The casual mehendi invite to my immediate family had the image in mehendi-green followed by text. The bridesmaid invite in rich purple (Top Right) included a cheesy poem, and were personalized for each bridesmaid. The engagement e-vite was in a deep maroon (Bottom Left), and the Thank You Cards (Top Left) were in a rustic orange. The maroon and orange matched the decorations at the hall, and those colours were also used for the beautiful number signs for the table decor.
The event was a lot of fun, and it was touching to have family all over the world come to celebrate with us! Stay tuned for several wedding related DIY projects :)
Navrathri is one of my favourite celebrations. It’s 9 days that is essentially devoted to Woman Power! The 9 days of Navrathri celebrate three hindu goddesses; The goddess of power (Durga), wealth (Lakshmi) and knowledge (Saraswati). The belief is that honoring the divine mother will bestow wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge, and other powers into your life.
