For as long as i’ve known my husband, he has wanted an Arjuna inspired tattoo but he was never able to pin point the design or style he wanted. As a surprise anniversary present, I designed a tattoo based on everything I knew about him, his style, and his tattoo related ramblings. Design in hand, I took him for his first official Tattoo consultation. Not only was Arjun SUPER surprised, but he loved the design right off the bat! A few weeks and a few tweaks later, and we were back at the tattoo parlour to get inked. It was the most nerve wracking experience to know that there was no going back!
I am so honoured that my husband loved my work enough to put it on his body forever :)
For my friend’s engagement present, I got her a “Wedding Survival Kit”, and really loved the way the wrapping turned out!
My aunt and I had a great time making these paper peacock feathers using scrap book paper and brown paper bags :)
For Ganesh Chathurti in 2015, I sculpted a Ganesha using air dry clay and painted it using ink & acrylic paint. It was a great project and the Ganesha continues to be displayed in our small mantle :)
Hello all and I hope you had a wonderful Holidays! I wish you all the very best for the New Year :) 2015 was a great year for creativity, but a slow one for blogging. I hope to bring much more art to you in 2016, especially with my new DIY blog at http://www.sris-arts.com, my new pinterest page, and my new instagram page.
Below are a picture of my first Christmas in the condo, complete with beautiful handmade ornaments :)
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 :)
